Letter from Augustin
Don’t spend much time in mourning. I see you are feeling sad and the tears just seem to flow unceasingly. I haven’t really left you even though it may seem so. No need to feel distress. Don’t bother yourself with questions, or try to reason why. Life here for me was ended. It came my time to depart. Don’t lose the love I gave you; feed it with your care. Grow it with devotion and spread it everywhere.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard His call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My Life's been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
God wants me now, He sets me free.
If you have a word for me, please drop it here.
Adieu my friends until we meet again to part no more.
"Today is your Birth Day even though you are nor more but it's doesen't seem so.you are remembered and always will be remembered. Your daughter has your picture in her memory. Each time l show your picture to her, she always say Dady.This means that she knows you and l will make sure she always remember you when she grows up. Happy Bird Day dear from from your daughter and he mummy .Love u"
"you where and still is a great dad i know ur with ur daughter and all your love ones difference is we just cant see you i remember ur huge smile and how you just brings the fun of everyone when ur around you just dont know how you've touched alot of people's lives i really love u and miss u sooo much"

"I just remember today is Augustine's birthday and in his honor i wish to share the quote below:
"The only thing that counts is faith, expressing itself through love.
Carry each others burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." (Ephesians 5:6, 6:2)
Adieu Augustine and we pray you rest well in the Lord."
"this is all still a dream to me i just need somebody to slap me to snap back to reality i remember that night you asked me to sleep in the hospital with sister bridget and i was more than honor to i remember you holding my hand tight and telling me "emmanuela your uncle is in pain help me" couldnt do nothin but cry and pray bacause if the was anything i could do i would've done RIP ILY"
"God's ways are not our ways and thats the only reason I decided to stop asking why? why? why do the treasured ones always go first?
Augustine had a good heart and all that knew him felt it. All we can do now is thank God for his life, and intercede for him.May his gentle soul rest in peace."
"I met Gus when he was a student working at Wishard. It really made me sad when I heard about his death this past weekend from a co-worker. I remember that he always had a big smile on his face. He will be missed."
"Augustine, you have touched the lives of so many individuals we will always miss you. You were a Great friend helping me so many times, and always a phone call or drive away. It's been eight years of great friendship! Thanks for everything! May God strengthen Bridget and the rest of your family & friends! Until we meet again!"
"Just thanking God for all those moments u spent with us especially when u were in Cameroon, u choosed me as ur accountant, going round with u, not forgetting ur trip to Buea, Mautoo, ur uncles place in Buea etc and now, ur last word was "BE HARDWORKING" on Friday when u called us & then on Sunday, u left during lunch time. We loved u but God loves u most. Adieu "NI""
"Gus I will miss your smile. I enjoyed working with you at Wishard. I also remember when you walked into my husbands hospital room as his nurse, you where great help to both of us. My heart goes out to your family, I will remember you always. Prayers for your family and loved ones. Cammie Smith"
"Gus, myheart is heavy ,my eyes are filled with tears , Icant just stop thinking about your smiles and brotherly love. May the good Lord keep you till meet again."
"Dear Augustine, your passing away reminds me that life is vanity. My heart trembles when I think of your smiles that will be forever invisible for my 20/20. My eyes grow weak with sorrow as a result of your rapid departure , for my soul is in deep anguish!,, For how long? Only the Almighty knows. For no word can exactly express how your absence is agonizing the people you left behind. RIP."
"<Young Man> as I always call you, this is <Ninja> as you always call me. We cannot imagine that we will not see you again. Is like a dream. My wife told me (can you cannot imagine that I will not hear Augustine calling you Ninja again?). What is this life .We will all miss you untill we will met to part no more. Go in peace."
"To his wife and family,have faith death is not an end,but a journal home.someday you will be reunited with your loved one.until then,your loved one will live on in your heart,for those we have truly loved could never be forgotten. And i hope that the love you feel will give you strength through these difficult times,have faith that the sun will shine again.RIP AUGUSTINE.u will be missed."
"Mr Augustine,I remember when i came to INDY pushing my long tummy, you made my life fun and gave it meaning in your own way. I could call you and vent and you would say "Mami Kiki e go be ok nah" lol. Thank you. This hurts!!! Baby Kiki and i are privileged to have joined you on the stage of life. Every scene shall never be forgotten,the scripts shall be read...RIP, we love you"
"I got news of Augustine’s death with total shock. It is heart breaking to see a mate die at this tender age. What are the times coming to? What Augustine was to do on earth has abruptly come to an end. May the Almighty God grant him eternal rest in His heavenly Kingdom. My condolence to the widow and the bereaved family."
"To say this is shocking is an understatement!!!!, Gus! i can't believe you are gone, all of us at St. V are still in shock!. Remembering your smiles, our arguements, your clowning!!!, waow!, this is wishing you a peaceful rest in the bossom of the Lord. He alone knows why he has taken you. May your soul rest in perfect peace. May God comfort
the family you have left behind."
""AUGUSTINE, I remember the warm and brotherly reception u gave me when I first moved to INDY from MD;I remember how u made sure that I feel at home for someone new in a new state;I remember all the Guinness we used to drink at TADKAH; the amazing Augustine style that always started the dance floor; all I can say is that u leave a void that is going to be difficult to fill and u are missed."
""No good tree bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. each tree is regognized by its own fruit. people do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.a good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart" luke 6:43-45 Augustine was the people's person, he smile at all time, make jokes with every body, hard working and aspiration, but God love him best."
"God has surely added another angel to his increasing flock. Uncle Augustine, the more I hear your name the more I'm in disbelief that you're gone. The remainining months you spent with family and friends left an impressionable mark on me. I could see who you were as a person and now spirit. "Petit frere" is what you called me. Wasn't sure of the intentions but now I know the meaning. RIP"
"''Dear Brother Augustine,We love you but God loves you most and have called you ahead to sit at his right hand.May your soul rest in perfect peace till we meet again to part no more.There is a time to be born and a time to die''GLORY BE UNTO HIS NAME,AMEN"
"Augustine, words can not describe who you were and how much we cherished you. You were simply a man who could be imitated but never duplicated. You were simple yet firm in action.You did so much for Nkun in particular and Ngwo at large. While we grive your passing, we must equally thank our God for the wonderful time we had while you were with us. May the Almighty accept you."
"Augustine, i hate to say good bye to some one i have ate,wine, slept, school, dance and what have we not done together.we used to call each other ''factual''.what ever that meant to us is all gone.Now i take the pains to say good bye and R.I.P."
"Abint! You heard me weeping on the phone. I am still weeping. Well, there is not much else I can do. I remember our days in Njikwa: our daring trips to Fun, Oshie Market, the thrashing from the principal when we skipped English to go eat achombo, the adventures, etc. These memories will stay until we meet again. Thanks for all!"
"Uncle Augustine,I wish i knew 27th May 2012 was the last time we will talk to each other, smile and crack jokes.Well all i can say is that this world is not really our home. I can't believed we won't chat and laugh again its so sad that you are gone too soon but i believe God knows Best and you are in a better place.May your Soul Rest in Perfect Peace"
""My Man", we fondly called ourselves. Your absence at Indy airport on July 14th made me to question if all was OK. It was not.Your unlimited services to me and many others tell the whole story and shall never be forgotten.Though we grief, God rejoices over a wonderful soul won. He needs your services too. We are sure that you are just in the right place. RIP at the bosom of the Almighty."
"Gone are the days we spent together as school mates
hoping for a better day ahead. It was about to start and the lord said no, “this is my time”. It is hard to think that you are gone.
One is even tempted to say that it is not fair
Well, what more can we say? It is the will of God. Augustine, we say good bye."
"Abinteh, I can hardly believe you are gone forever. i always haboured the believe that we will meet sometime and continue where we left off in nkjikwa, you use to come around to make sure i was making the correct preparation for the GCE. you have left so early, we will not be able to understand why you left so early. your death has left us with so many questions than answers. R.I.P Ageh."
"Dear Augustine. We Will forever miss you. Your soft laughs your easy going attitude. Never angry with anyone. We Will forever miss you. The Nkun village as a whole shall leave to remember you. Go and find joy and peace wherever you are.only one person knows why u left us.
May Jehovah fine grace in you. Bye bye brother. It is very painful..."
"If tears could build a stairway,I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.Last month I visited Indianapolis and spent most of my time in your home.Little did i know. R.I.P. U leave behind a mark of humor and Love."
"May your soul Rest In Perfect Peace. We are all going to miss you. Our hearts are all touched by you leaving us early.It was your time to go. Hence prepare a place for us. It is the power of the Lord. i did not know you personally but i heard how incredible you were.
We will all miss you."
"For a moment I thought it was all a dream, but when i came back to indianapolis and saw Aunty Bri and the rest of the family in tears i then realized you had truely left. Its sad you had to embark on this everlasting journey at the time when we needed you most, but i know you've made an impact in my life which will guide me even in your absence. RIP Uncle Ageh i will miss you."
"Augustine, I stare at the couch you used to sit on, hoping you will appear so we could argue as we used to. You don't, and that makes me sad. Nevertheless, thank you for the gift you left us in the form of Neriah. Looking at her brings tears to my eyes, everything about her reminds me of you. She will forever keep the memory of you fresh in my heart. RIP dear brother, I miss you greatly"
"Augustine, there are so many lives you have touched in a positive way; so many memories that bring smiles. And remind us of the wonderful person you were. So many stories about how you made a difference or made someone's day. We love you, but God loves you more. Rest in Perfect Peace"
"Augustine, all you have left is precious memories. Loving memories we will never forget. Whenever our son, McFibert, your God son requests for something, and we say no, he will say " I will go to my Uncle Augustine", because you will always give him what he wants. He keeps on asking, when will Uncle Augustine come back. We will remember your generosity, and caring heart."
Have a suggestion for us?
