If I should go tomorrow it would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you, so don't you ever cry.
The love that's deep within me, shall reach you from the stars,
You'll feel it from the heavens, and it will heal the scars.-Alexander Ambe Okala

I wrote your name on the sand .... but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name on the sky .... but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name on my heart .... and forever it will stay.

Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.

Till memory fades and life departs, you live forever in our hearts.
In loving memory of Pa Alexander Ambe Okala,

We all miss you Mr. Okala and it is amazing that now I noticed that you happen to be one of an elite of very few people in my whole life that our paths crossed for a few hours, yet left an indelible mark in my meager human memory that time will never be able to fold in! Basim Ayoub

I still remember very vividly how brave you were and how impressed I was being your doctor at the hospital and how even death looming ahead don't shake your lion brace heart! And I don't think I will ever forget your sweet smile you were wearing on your face, nor will I forget the jovial affect in the face of toughest situations! Basim Ayoub

PrayMoreNovenas.com PROTEUS ENOW AKO - Peace be with you! For some, suffering doesn't end with death. Some souls suffer in Purgatory as they go through a purification before entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Let's pray for all souls who suffer in Purgatory. May Mary, Undoer of Knots, intercede for them. Here are the prayers for today: Day 8 - The Novena to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots (Audio/Video Version) Virgin Mother of God, overflowing with mercy, have mercy on your child and undo this knot [mention your request here] in my life. Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me. Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exist in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exists in my life. You know very well how desperate I am, my pain, and how I am bound by these knots. Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of his children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life. No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone. Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot. [Mention your request here] I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all. You are my hope. 
O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution, and, with Christ, the freedom from my chains. Hear my plea. Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge! Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me. Amen. Proteus and Martha.

Dear Papa, It's been a year since you left us, our hearts are still broken. But because you were once here, we are completely filled with your love. In our hearts you hold a place no one can ever fill. We'll always remember that special smile, that caring heart, that warm embrace. If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, we'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. You will always be missed. Rest in perfect peace until we meet again.

Pa Okala, your acceptance of our friend and brother, Dr. Enohmbi Emmanuel into your family was a privilege for us all to share the LOVE of a Darling father and grandfather. Your life on earth was exemplary to all. You've done your part and you rest today in the bossom of the Lord, we pray you prepare a better place for us all and re-assure of that we will keep the flame burning. May your soul rest in perfect peace. AMEN!

Pa Okala, it is very hard to believe that you are no longer with us, but we find solace in the fact that you are in a better place, where there is no pain. It was a pleasure knowing you papa, from the time we first met in 2003 to when we last saw you before you went home to rest with your maker, you treated me and eventually my husband and kids like we were yours. We thank you for your advice, prayers and smiles that were always available for anyone of us who was willing to take them even at those last moments you spent with us. Papa you will forever be in our thoughts and hearts as we celebrate your life. Rest in peace papa, we love you but God loves you most. Ernestine and Charles Besong

Dear Papa, Your gentle way of speaking and encouragement will always be remembered. I still remember the conversation I had with you and Mama a few weeks before leaving for home. You raved and appreciated your children and grand children. You were admired and insightful. You were loved, you will be missed by many but the memories and foot prints you shared with everyone who came in contact with you during your life on this earth will last forever. Rest in peace.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. My condolences to the Okala Family.
Posted by Priscilia Wara on 12th May 2014
One cannot begin to imagine the hurt you guys are going through right now. One is never ready nor too old to be gone, nor are those left behind ever willing to readily let go, no matter how prepared we think we might be. just the thought of not seeing them again is so painful, but find joy and consolation in the fact that they have gone ahead to a better place. Accept my condolence,- you and your entire family.

Papa Okala, you opened your arms with love and tenderness to recieve my friend Dr. Enowmbi Emmanuel as your son-in-law and blessed the entire family during your stay with them for before returning to Cameroon to bide farewell to your friends and family who will also miss you. You were there to make sure that Papa's daughter(Antoinette) & family were all fine & should enjoy the most of your last days as you listened to the calling of our Lord and followed his instructions carefully to return home as your days were drawing near. Papa Okala, You had the fear of God, so too could He speak to you directly and you understand His instructions. May your entire family follow your footsteps in the Lord and turn to Him at the cross roads of their life. Papa Okala, may your soul have eternal rest as you join in company with Christ who died and now lives in heaven where all tears are wiped away.

Dear Pa Okala family. Death still brings with it pain and sadness to God's children. When God created Adam and Eve, his perfect was for them and their generation to live forever in fellowship with him. But he warned them that if they disobeyed him, they would die. When they disobeyed, their proud rebellion disrupted their fellowship with God and let death into their world. (Genesis 2:15-3:24). Since their fall, all humans have contended with the triple curse of sin, death, and separation from God. Jesus assured us in (John 5:24) " Whoever hears what I say and believes in the One who sent me has eternal life. That person ( Pa Okala) will not be judged guilty but has already left death and entered life". Pa has left this life and is with Christ which is much better ( Phillipians 1:21-23)". Everybody in this forum be born again now to follow Pa's steps as it is never too late.

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. So our father In-law is with us in everything we continue to do. We loved you but God call has taken you away from us. May the almighty God continue to guide and give strength to my friend, the wife and the kids.

God,you reached down from heaven and took my dad home .A father,a role model ,a mentor who understood the joy in lifting other people up,making them smile and leaving them changed in a positive way.PAPA, my heart is bleeding with pain and i will ever be in that contest sharing the greatest gift you ever gave me and i believe you are in heaven watching over me and my siblings.Your positive attitude has lifted me out of so many tough situations...OH,OH, i lost a mentor,a wonderful and irreplaceable dad.....R I P loving and dearest dad,since i know you are in heaven,i want you to always remember that the LOVE i have for you will never fade until we meet..
Posted by Antoinette Okala on 6th May 2014
No one can ever replaced our dad. The death of a love one brings terrible anguish, for my heart is filled with pain and loss. I yearn for the sight, smell, voice and feeling of my dad ever since he passed. It is almost impossible to farthom that he is no longer here. However, i believe that beyond our death we will find something similar but far greater than we can imagine. God's love welcomes us like a warm blanket, wrapping us up to support, protect and comfort us in eternal joy. Death is only a passage into a larger loving family. Dad, as you transition into your new loving family, i will always savored those moments we spent together. Although I will miss your laugh, the funny times, the times we argued and your advice, one thing i know for a fact is that you are free from all your pains and i'm very proud of your accomplishments. God wanted you now, God set you free. Adieu, mon commissaire!!
