"Papa, it’s been 6 years since you left suddenly having us wondering.
As we look back over time we want to be grateful for the values, the survival skills you taught us relentlessly while you were here. For me the most striking part was learning about Manliness, resilience and keeping it real through family relationships, Trust and Truth.
Today as you navigate up there among the angels, your spirit remains here engrave in each of us. Yes you manage to continue to pour blessings upon us. I Just wanted to let you know how irreplaceable you are, and that we miss you every single day and you are forever loved.
As we celebrate your life, as we remember you, it is the opportunity to pray that God keeps u close to him and shower you with blessings so you can trickle it down and continue to watch over us.
Dad, we thank you so much for all you have done for us, for all the times you were by our sides from birth, childhood till we could stand on our own...., feeding us, teaching us, loving us, protecting us, supporting us through thick and thin. You have demonstrated to us throughout your life that succès is very possible with hard work, dedication, good judgment, honesty, courage and integrity. We will cherish such values for ever and we will never forget you Papa Christian Dzudie.

Thanks for the sacrifices you made and please keep shining light on us until the day we meet again. We Miss & Love U Dearly ❤️❤️❤️❤️

RIP Papa
Gervais, Gaelle, Brianna, Patrick, Prince, Britanny & Brigitte Dzudie"

aujourd'hui ca Fait 5ans que tu es parti sans nous laisser un aurevoir!!! Accepter ton depart a été difficle pour nous tes enfants bien que parfois la vie nous oblige à se confronter à certaines situations difficles comme le Depart d'un être Cher, aussi cher que tu las été à nos yeux.
en ce jour je depose cette fleur sur ta Tombe en guise de l'amour que tu degageais afin qu'elle continue de renuer entre nous
Papa je sais que là haut ou tu trouves tu veilles sur nous. cet ainsi que je prierai le Bon Dieu d'avantage afin que ton âme continue de reposer en paix.
Sei dein heiliges Geist gesegnet"

"An entire self-made man, you rose from very difficult beginnings in the very remote west undeveloped part of Cameroon. You struggled without much family support. There is so much I could say about you in terms of achievement in the academics, your career, your contribution to the society, Yes through you many were instructed, educated, learned, schooled, you inspired me to perform, to achieve to the greatest, to excel. Today is the day you were born, I cannot buy you a gift, I can no longer bake you a cake, give you a hug but through myself through many good people you have developed or contributed in to their success in any shape or fashion, your heart shines, your legacy speaks by itself, Dec 31st 1951 one of the finest man and Daddy was born. Although you left so soon, you are still here guiding us every step of the way. A true child of the Universe. Happy Birthday Prof, Happy Birthday Papa"

"Hello Papa,

Ok, four years since you been gone. As I commemorate your departure I can feel you very close to my heart . You were an outstanding and devoted educator but most of all a mentor, a friend, a wonderful human being, a very protective father.
Everyday I see you walking with me and the family you left. It is clear that you are up there with angels intercepting for us. Keep watching, keep safeguarding, keep shining your light upon us but most importantly keep smiling, stay happy, your legacy will never die.
Rest in Peace in Paradise until we see you again Papa.

You are missed dearly!!!

"Papa Teku,
je ne peux que continuer de prier pour toi afin que ton âme repose en paix. Je me rappelle encore de tes obsèques quand mes amis a qui tu as donné le cours de français t'ont pleuré vraiment si tu vivais tu aurais su comment les gens t'adoraient pas parce que tu avais l'or mais tout simplement parce que tu étais un homme Humble Papa. Je ne t'ai pas connu pendant longtemps ah oui ceci est l'un de mes regrets car j'aurai aussi profité de tes connaissances que tu aimais partagé égal l'endroit ou tu te retrouvais. Je me rappelle d'une de nos conversations qui ma marqué ce jour quand je passais juste pour saluer car j'étais dans le coin tu me vois et me dit :<< mama ça va???je dis ça va bien papa tu me dis assieds-toi,je le fis et tu commenças a me donner les conseils en me parlant de la vie des jeunes et le point le plus marquant était que tu t'es soucie de moi en me disant de ne pas faire ce que les jeunes font dehors de regarder autour de moi et d'observer, ensuite il me dit si tu échoues qu'elles sont les premières personnes a être déçue de toi je lui répondis mes parents il me dit voilà >> et c'est ainsi qu'il me dit la vie c'est une conquête à la réussite bats toi ma fille et tu seras heureuse dans ton foyer.Oui papa pour te rendre fière ou tu te trouves je me battrai afin que tu sois toujours fière

Ich werde immer Gott betten dass du uns unterstütztst
