"Hey Daddy. It's been two years since you left us and we miss you so much. You left us with so much love that will keep us for an entire lifetime which I am truly grateful for. I cants help but remember every time Hope ask about you that When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treadure. We tell her amazing stories about you everyday and I know that one day, when she is all grown up she will treasure those little memories of you that we all hold so dearly.

We miss you."

"Today is your birthday and the kids and I really don't know what to do babe. All we can do is to look up and hopping you are looking down as you rejoice with the lord. We love and miss very much! RIP"

"Every Year its get harder leaving without you in the house. Places are so empty and quite even thou people are around. No country music to keep the party going and its all because god decided to take you from us at such an early stage in your life.

Hope ask about you every time and we don't know what to say. Braden is doing very good in school. Junior your namesake shatters every expectation in both school and at home he can even help out now in the kitchen now so well. And just like Hope they ask about you too all the time.

We wish you were here with us every day to share in our lives because that way it will be more fun to experience everything with you on our side. We all know that even though you are not there with us physically, you are there with us spiritually. and that thought keeps us going every day.

We all miss and love you so much Daddy. Rest in peace!!
Immacu, Noel, Jurnior, Braden and Hope"

"Chai!! Papa god, what have I done to deserve this heavy cross you put on my shoulder? I do not know! But I thank you for given me the strength to carry it day by day.

Sweetheart, it has been a year since you left us to join your heavenly father. Tears still run down my eyes whenever I think of the great moment we had together. I thank you dearly for being a part of my life and for making it a better world for me and the kids. The thought of having to do everything every day without you is horrible because I’m not sure of what the future holds for me and the kids.  

Your untimely passing has created a deep hole in my heart that on one will ever fill. You have always brought out the best in us whether it’s just the two of us or with the children, our family and friends, it is always a blast. And in your death,   you are still able to do so much for us. I don’t know how we will move forward without your great BBQ’s and all the delicious dishes you used to prepare for us. Even the kids cannot stop bragging about it when I try to prepare some of them and they never turn out as good as yours.

Babe I will never forget what you used to tell me “A great soldier never dies” you will always be remembered and we will forever love you. May your gentle soul rest in perfect Peace

"It was really a heart breaking moment when I heard of the passing away of "chief Bongham" as I used to call him. We will miss the time we had together. I can remember that it was at his house that my son took his first step when we went visiting. Our brother, father and friend was a good and welcoming person, we will really miss him.
May his soul rest in peace and I pray that God will bless his family through this moment of sorrow.
RIP chief."

Sleep In Peace Brova."

"Small brother, we didn't come to know each other well but from comments around you seem to have touched quite a few lives during your short stay down here. I suppose that is why our Heavenly Father wants to draw you close to Him; so you can reach out to more lives than you could while down here. We bow to His verdict. Fare thee well, Bro."

This tribute was added by Elvis Fai on 20th November 2014

"Elvis Fai As I began to reach out for the right words to express my thoughts about my junior brother Foe, I remembered the valued and meaningful roles that Foe played through out his life. First and foremost I see him as the family man. he loved his family profoundly. He was a devoted husband/ son/ father/ uncle/ brother and friend. Looking back, he was a goodwill ambassador to his family and his community at-large. He is a ruler, a leader and a fighter who fought for our freedom in Irag and Afganistan. Thanks again for your services, you will be forever missed."

This tribute was added by Atangche Vingalla on 19th November 2014

"I'm sitting here in my room, looking at your picture.
Wondering why you couldn't be a part of this day.
Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,
while my heart beat starts to race.
Asking God why he took you from my life,
it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.
I still needed you here
you were the one to make everything so clear.
you are a part of me and I am a part of you
when you died a part of me died too.
I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love
until the day you went to heaven above.
Even though I can't see,
I know you’re up there watching over me.
I miss you more and more everyday
and all I can do is pray.
In my heart you shall forever remain.

This tribute was added by Atangche Vingalla on 19th November 2014

"Death How Cruel are you?
One more chance, and I will show you that it wasn’t time enough.
Shu fai Why?
Wokissa Number 1 “A” why?
You’re sadly missed along life's way,
You will be quietly remembered every day...
You are no longer in our lives to share,
But you are in our hearts, and you will always be there
We will all celebrate your life.
And the measure of its worth.
And every single life you touched.
While you were on this earth.
We wish to pay our last respects.
That's why we all are here.
To thank you for your friendship.
And all the memories we hold dear.
Its been a privilege to have known you.
We were family not just friends.
We leave you now knowing you are safe in His arms,
No more pain or suffering, away from all harm.
Rest with the angels, until we all will see you once more.
We love and have missed you, things we will always adore.
Watch over us now, for one day it will come.
And we will carry you in spirit.
Until we meet up once again.

"Dear young valiant cousin, we counted so much on your youthful dynamism in the family yet you have come and gone like a candle in the wind. We will sorely miss you yet we believe strongly that the marks you left on the sands of time will remain to guide all the others. Fare thee well."

"Hei Bob, How do I start? What can I say? Why did you have to go. You made the whole world light up with your amazing laugh. I smile when I remember.
Sometimes God picks the flower that is still in full bloom;
Sometimes the rosebud’s chosen,  we feel He’s picked too soon.
Sometimes the flower is fading with petals floating down,
But God knows the perfect time to gather flowers from the ground.
There is a heavenly garden in which God takes great pleasure
Because He’s placed within it the loved ones that we treasure.
He walks among the blossoms giving them eternal rest,
And I know that it must please Him Because He chose our very best.

"Bongham u always said there is no place as sweet as home because home is home and that u will always remember to come back home, u came and did it home.Soldiers don't cry when they say Goodbye.Life is a cycle of hellos and goodbyes. We exchange hi's and hello's when we meet. We bid goodbye when it's time to break up or leave.You fought the battle and  crossed the bar leaving so many hearts empty, though gone too soon, thoughts of you will always culminate to produce memories that will forever last.Once a soldier always a soldier Rip me dear brother."

Your name like sweet perfume will always remain in our minds and hearts for you tower above them all!! Adieu"

"Uncle Foh, till this day we are still not able to fully wrap around our minds that you are gone. Never would we have thought our brave warrior would have left us so soon. Just a few months ago we saw you, and you were as lively as we have ever seen you before. It leaves a bruise and heartache on our hearts to know you left this world too soon. You cared for your family dearly and you continue to do so through your spirit that still lives within us. You've gone to the next life to build a home for your family, we will come, meet again and rejoice once more and forever as one. Family.
          Farewell Uncle. Gone But Never Forgotten.
          Your Nieces&Nephew, Berka, Chelsea, Paris, and Mike Junior."

This tribute was added by Bobga Zarakapointe on 8th November 2014

"It's been over a week since we heard about your passing away Uncle Foe. I'm still in total dismay and shock because I didn't know soldiers like you could go this easily. The whole family is in grief and despondency. If there's any one thing I can remember about you, it's "braveness." If I would have to talk about you, I could go writing novels non-stop. Our memories from Christmas last year are still very fresh like it was yesterday. Uncle Foe, this thing to me is like a phantasmagoria. I've been waiting for family back home to call and say you went for a compendious sleep, but it seems like truly you're sleeping with The Lord. We as family will continue to make relentless efforts to continue from where you stopped. I'm rest assured that you're going to be looking after the family as well. Once a soldier, always a soldier Uncle Foe. All I can say is Rest in peace."
