My Beloved Sister and Best Friend
I will never forget that Friday morning, March 5, 2021, when I received a call from my nephew saying “mama is not talking again”. That was the beautiful day the Lord called you, my Sister and Best Friend home to your eternal peace and rest. I called you, Ma Agi James and you called me, Lydia Tabi. This was like our pet names we called each other and we laughed how we called each other that way. I am blessed to have you as my Sister and Best Friend. Our three siblings that were between us departed from this world when I was very young. That left you and I to be bonded together over the years until March 5, 2021 when the Lord called you home. When I left Cameroon a couples of years ago, you told me to make sure I come home often to visit and I kept that promise. Even though we were thousands of miles away, when we talked on the phone or on video it was as if we were sitting beside each other. I will not forget the loving memories you gave me. You thought me how to share love through caring and giving. You shared the little you had with others without reservation, even when you were in need. I cannot remember when you complained, murmured or grumbled about anything, as if you were not facing challenges.

I will ever be grateful to the Lord that we were able to travel home in 2014 from America to Tinto to celebrate your 90th birthday. We called it 90th but you said you were 100 years and no one could argued with you because there was nobody older than you around.

I will miss you so very much, my Sister and Best Friend. I still love you the same as if you were here with me, laughing and chatting. I wish you sweet sleep. My heart’s solace is one day I will be reunited with you in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You have gone to your eternal home, enjoying the presence of the Lord. Numbers 23:10 “Let me die the death of the righteous and let my end be peace”.

For this journey that we all must take, and each must go alone. It’s all a part of the Lord’s plan.

Grandma, you had this innate ability to make a weeping heart heal. A few words from you would dry tears from crying children. You were so gentle and, and kind, and resilient, and funny...your spirit so young and refreshing.The list could go on forever. I cannot help but to smile as I reminisce of all the stories daddy used to tell me of his childhood and what a pillar you were and how forgiving you were, especially towards the most unforgiving acts. This is who grandma was and what I strive to be one day. I will miss you dearly but you forever live in my heart.

MA Agi, you were a precious and special gift from God. From the first day I knew you, you took me as your daughter and not a daughter Inlaw. You showed me motherly love. MA Agi you were my role model and my pillar of support. You touched my heart in so many ways, you never complained, your strength and smile gave me no reason to be sad when ever I was beside you or listening to your sweet talks. You were always patient to listen to my little complaints and you gave me advice using your own personal brave life stories.
Oh what a great loss. I will really miss you and your sweet stories. MA Agi, you were all I ever needed to be happy. I had the best mother Inlaw ever in the whole wide world, I will forever miss you MA AGI, but I know you are in a better place resting in the Lord, till we meet again.

MA Lisa, as you always call me.

Grandma I was hoping to see you in the future and get to be closer with you, but I already felt closer to you when I was named after you and was told great stories about you. I’ve always wanted to be like a strong powerful woman just like you, and the way my dad John Enoh described you to me, I always seen a smile on his face. Of course he’s still smiling but not as much as he did like when he was talking about you. I love you and hope you are resting well in heaven and finally found peace.

I got the shocking news of your death unfortunately it came at a time when circumstances beyond my reach couldn't permit me to bid you Fair well. You showed me all what it took to be not only a sister, friend,but my closest counselor.
I lack words to describe your departure. we might be separated by sight but still remain in spirit. Adieu weeh mama mama mama.
But the truth is that Christ has been raised from death as the guarantee that those who sleep in death will also be raised for just as all people die because of their union with Adam,in the same way all will be raised to life because of their union with Christ .

her Life
Life in itself has lessons to offer as each day unfolds, no matter what it brings, one has not to draw conclusions about its end when the author of life has not concluded.
Agnes Ngwanow is the name of her birth. She is the first daughter and the second child born in 1924 out of the 9 children of our father Pa martin Tabi Atem of Akiriba village and wife Ma Hannah Ewubenow all of blessed memory.
Ma Agnes was married to Mr. James Tangie Enow-Ebika of Tinto Kerieh now of blessed memory. While at her matrimonial home, she experienced continous infant mortality, a predicament which left her and the husband to relocate to Akiriba, village of origin.
While in Akiriba, Ma Agi gavebirth to four male children who are all alive today. Due to the love she had for her husband and the ambitions she had for her children, she had to risk her life under rain and sun for 21 years to do farming in her husband's village, a journey of 12km to and fro every day so as to preserve farm lands and building plots for her children. Her prayer and motivation was that one day the almighty God would take her back to her husband's compound with all her children. God answered her prayer.
In 1986 Ma Agi together with her husband received Christ as their Lord and personal savior and were baptized at the Apostolic Church Cameroon. Ma Agi was overwhelmed in 2014 on her 90th birthday when her children and her siblings threw her a surprise birthday party.
Ma Agi leaves behind 3 siblings Lydia Tabi, Johson Tabi, and Grace Nakumba,  5 children Enowbi, Mformoh, Tabisong, Ashuagbor, and Tabot, 14 grand children and 12 great grand children.
We thank God for the fulfilled life that she lived. To God be the glory.
