Pa Awa,
I was so honored to know you and be part of your legacy. You are a wonderful man who will live on in our memories forever. You had an incredibly warm and caring spirit. There are no words that I can use to describe what an incredibly beautiful soul you had. You are a special man and we are broken down by your departure. I know you are in a better place now. We will always have you in our prayers. R.I.P daddy.

Adjudent chef pa Tumasang was in deed a brave and praise worthy man I have even come across in Yaoundé. His military background was far more different from his quiet , calm , religious, advisory figure that he was.
He has been one of the pillars in the PDO Yaoundé chapter and his contributions towards the development of the clan is outstanding.
His last but one remarkable deeds was the just passed elections of the chapter where he conducted right to the end . He has always been a sportsman during the Pinyin Unity cup competition in Mateco for many years.
In short, good people do not stay for long but their works stays forever. He will be remembered for his charisma , simplicity and love for our motherland. May the Almighty receive you in his infinite Lovely Kingdom .

Papa, you used to call me "Mefon". Whenever you visited us in Bamenda, I will ask you questions until Ma Su will scold me to leave you alone. I saw how you struggled with the pains you felt and I know God has taken you to a better place. You were the guardian angel of the family, while in Heaven, please keep watching over us all. Adieu Papa we will all miss you.

Dad, I still cannot believe that you are gone. A day does not go by that I don't think about all the memories we shared together. You where a loving, caring and ever forgiving dad who was always ready to give me advice and support when I had any difficulties. Papa you where a father of many children and you loved us all equally and we wished you could stay with us longer but God had other plans for you. It is not flesh and blood but the heart that makes us father and son, no matter where I am your spirit will be beside me for I know that no matter what, you will always be with me.... Rest in power Daddy...... Adios

I know of a master and a king who lived like a servant. Father, you were and is still a the best father, friend, brother, councillor, patient leader. A man who gathered and fathered any child from every angle. Grandma drove me to come live with You at the detriment of her health for a better future and you gave me the opportunity to have a father like no other in this cruel world.
   What will I tell Mamali of your whereabout??. A Father who kept telling us that LIFE IS A BATTLE yet i felt like you did not fight to remain with us. Since you decided to answer a heavenly call which is unavoidable, travel well and tell the father we'll answer the call when he calls. We will keep fighting the Battle Dad. Rest peacefully.  
                       Awa Bless

Though I know where you are is beautiful, my heart bleeds because we are not part of your new world. Among the great memories is the fact that you introduced me to Jesus, that's why among fathers , your type is rare . You've applied wisdom many  times when I  and almost all around me were getting it wrong. Your a man at the pursuit of peace even with your enemies. I admire you sir, a General you are , you were and you remain. Farewell "Monsoir Awa", we will meet soon.

Papa, memories of you will forever be engraved in my heart, I remember talking with you a few days prior to your departure and you were trying to find out how my eye was and if it was getting better. I must say I fell blessed that you filled the gap left behind by my dad when he died. I know that by now both of you are rejoicing in the lord's bossom. We all love you but God loves you more. Till we meet again I would always love you. Your God son

My dear friend, my father,my hero, my lovely husband and my everything. You were more than a husband to me. We had understood ourselves for all these years to the extend that we became like brothers and sisters,but today my heart is filled with grief and sorrow because you are no more. You have left me on the middle of the road and I dont know where to start or who to turn too. I have no idea on how the rest of my days on earth will look like without you.
  We worked hand in gloves to raise our children spiritually,morally and educationally but your sudden departure has left me with the great task. You were the pilote of the family unity which made every body to see you as a role model in the family and society. I will do my best to keep this unity even in your absence
   We did shoulder the storms of life together and held our hands to glorify the God. You were a blessing sent from heaven to me. Our love was so profound, but God loves you more and decides to call you. Go well my darlin husband, rest in perfect peace till we meet again to part no more......

Pa your early departure is a big shock to me. Uptill now I can not believe that you have gone so soon. You were my protector, my warrior, my adviser, my friend, my uncle and above all my father. Pa I remain speechless and don't know where to start because it is thanks to you that I am where I am today. I say thank you pa. I love you but God love you more than I do and has taken you from us. God's ways are not our ways. Adieu papa, till we meet again.

Daddy I thank God for the opportunity of having been your daughter. You were an inspiration to me and now that you are gone, life is empty and I really feel desolate at times.
You will forever remain alive in my heart n memories daddy, and though am learning to live without you, I still miss you soon much.

A father's touch a father's kiss a grieving daughter,you are greatly missed.
  The times we shared together, the laughs we had, things I will always miss when I think of you dad. Many memories in my mind some i laugh some i cry in sorrow i mourn and think about you.
  You were a Dad every kid will love to have friendly, loving,jovial a peacemaker and above all God fearing.
Who could have imagined you will leave your last baby without a word of GOODBYE. 
No last hug, no last kiss,no last "Goodbye" leaves me with one last wish....... To have you dad here today never to leave your daughter this way.
 Fairwell Mr AWA as in your simplicity you loved us call you, as in one day I will join your glorious flight to eternity.

My monsieur Awa of Love, farewell my sweet father.
You were more of a friend than a father.
A subtle man, a man with compassion, one who is never envious of another's belongings but ready to work hard to get his own.
You left us with no words of goodbye.
You were a good man to all and sundry.
You fed all who entered your home with same finger and treated all the same.
You thought us well, you made us good and strong women we are today but you did not give us time to thank you enough.
We had good plans for you which we barely started...... but I guess God had better ones for you.
You went beyond your elastic limit to see your girls through school despite what the world said.
I'm happy because you accomplished your plans for us none of us will ever be liability
You were always sick and we would pray and you would be ok.
This time we prayed even harder but God changed the routine.
And we only have to give thanks to God as in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 but this thanks is very difficult to give.
The only thing I'm glad is that you are going to heaven through Christ Jesus because we led you.
Adieu soldier mama Lydia.

Mr Awa as I had the habit of calling you.i still can't believe that I am writing a tribute in memory of you. Words can't explain the sharp and throbbing pain that your departure has left in me. But as the bible says in every thing we give thanks. I thank you cuz I know you are resting in the bosom of God.
Farewell my beloved father.

Our dearness to each other needs. NO COMMENT. What has befallen you is above you and I. I am rather elated to realise you are dearer to the almighty God than to me. May your soul rest in perfect peace. Bye brother till we meet to part no more.

My beloved brother (pa'a AWA) I count it all joyful when the memory of your eternal rest flashes in me. My hope is that we shall meet at the feet of Jesus someday because of your glorious life. Your exit was swift, sweet and glorious.
You were a reference point at all times of need, a brother, a father, a mentor and a peace lover in the family. I remember how family members ran to you for advice and you made them go back happily. The bible says in Ecc. 7: 1 A good name is better than precious ointment,...I am convinced you attained that , you were a man of valor.
Our destination is far greater than what we know, for some, the journey is slow, for some, the journey is quicker and when the journey finally ends, we will claim a greater reward and find everlasting peace with the Lord. You were God fearing, hardworking and cared for us all.
It is hard to say farewell my brother, but I will try; My brother rest in the bosom of the lord

Papa it's very difficult to believe you are gone. The last thing you did was waving me, so it was goodbye?
You use to call me Mme Njikta, mami Enestine but since Thursday the 18th I have not heard that voice. I pray God fill the gap you left in my heart. Farewell papa. Rest in peace.

I was waiting and expecting in EBOLOWA because we have not seeing each other since I returned back from India.

I called you Som or Somos noba joss, never Sampson!You certainly sprang a big one on me!I wasn't even aware you had gone into hospital!
My handsome, soft-spoken cousin of the Titankeng dynasty, where do l begin to say how special you were?Memories of the time we spent together in Buea and subsequently in Douala and Yaounde are carved in stone!You were such a down to earth and exceedingly public-spirited person!You were generous of heart and spirit, loyal in friendship and totally dedicated to family, nuclear and extended alike!
In hindsight, how could anyone have imagined last New Year day when it was my good fortune to receive you, Johnson Ticha, Daniel Mbotuh and Akamentso Ndhey Tening Mongwa, that less than 3 months later two of you will have transitioned?
Fare thee well my brother Som!Rest easy in the bosom of the Almighty in the celestial city!You will be sorely missed!

Pa I just cannot believe that you have passed on to glory so soon. Even though your health had shown signs of failing, it was certain that being a man of exceptional faith, you were not to quit the scene so soon, but the Almighty God had already decided.
Pa you were not only a disciplinarian but you were self-disciplined, matching your words with your deeds. You set the base of education in love, discipline and hard work where I started my education with you in Limbe and even when I lived with you in Yaoundé for my university and professional studies.
You were a man whose trajectory of life was worth emulating, a man of outstanding character, a pace setter and a man of great understanding who was always ready to help at all costs and at any time, a man of profound generosity of heart. You were more than just an in-law to me because my success in life is thanks to your constant advice and help.
Pa, your untimely departure has created a vacuum that shall be difficult to fill. Your absence shall forever remain very painful in our hearts. As we are celebrating and will forever continue to celebrate your life, we thank God.
Wish you a safe journey home till we meet again to part no more. Adieu Papa.

Pa, your sudden departure is a big blow to me. It has created a gap in my life that shall never be filled. You were more of a father to me than just an in-law because it is thanks to you that I am who I am in life. You were a man who understood every family member’s situation and was always ready to help and at any time. A man who loved truth, discipline and hard work, and who encouraged us to emulate.
Pa, you left when I needed you the most. You have left me in the middle of the road and I don’t know who to turn to for help and advice, but God knows why. It is very hard to say adieu to you papa. Journey well until we meet again.

My Monsieur Awa
Everyone called you Papa
You were an epitome of a good father
Covering all like an umbrella.

Death be not proud
For our hearts are filled with doubt
Like sailors on a boat aground
Eyes full of tears as we cry out loud.

One thing remains sure
Eternity in the Lord, there lies your future .
There shall you live a life free of pressure
Getting rewards we can't measure.

There shall be no more pain
In the lords bosom you will remain
Drawing from life's fountain
Until we meet Again.

Dear Dad,.                                  My life time memories with you are an everlasting one. You were a very hard working man, a passionate figure of strength who never waned in his support or love for ones another and for the family that Mama Lydia built . These lovely memories we have of you are permanently inscribed in our minds,ones that will never fade away. I know that as you have departed from the earth,you will dwell in an everlasting rest with our Lord in heaven. For the Bible says in 2nd Corinthians 5:1 that "For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed,we have building from God,an eternal house in heaven,not built by human hands." Until we meet again and after,I will always love you . Rest in perfect peace sweet father.

                From your son Nkwenti Clovis

Adjudent chef pa Tumasang was in deed a brave and praise worthy man I have even come across in Yaoundé. His military background was far more different from his quiet , calm , religious, advisory figure that he was.
He has been one of the pillars in the PDO Yaoundé chapter and his contributions towards the development of the clan is outstanding.
His last but one remarkable deeds was the just passed elections of the chapter where he conducted right to the end . He has always been a sportsman during the Pinyin Unity cup competition in Mateco for many years.
In short, good people do not stay for long but their works stays forever. He will be remembered for his charisma , simplicity and love for our motherland. May the Almighty receive you in his infinite Lovely Kingdom .

My best friend, my father, my mentor, my counsellor, my hero, peace maker, my gossip partner. You departed this wicked world even without a word. Your death came as a shock to us and you best know what your departure has caused in our lives and that of the entire Tumasang family. The entire family looked up to you for advice. You promised/lied to me that you were to supervise my project which is ongoing, you constructed your dream home, parked your belongings but didn’t make it there, how do you expect our mother to go there alone. How I wish those who’ve gone before drove you back. We just have to accept the reality of your departure though hard and live with it. You’ll always be remembered for your jokes, your friendly gesture will be greatly missed. You treated every child in the family as one even outsiders. Above all you’ve created a positive impact in so many lives. 
Adieu

Ni Sampson, the unexpected news of your demise that we received on the evening of Thursday last week was like a sword that was thrust through my heart. You were an elder brother but throughout the years since we went to primary school together, you were a reservoir of strength, humility, service to others and incredible abnegation. Your passing away is therefore a huge loss of affection for all those of us who knew and were close to you. As hard as the news of your demise is, you are a forunner on a path the the Almighty Father has predestined for all of us mortals. May He therefore guide you home to a place of choice in your eternal rest at His bosom
