"CHARITY AND CARE Foundation in Namibia has learned with shock of the untimely death of the late Friend/Partner Mr Daniel Tabi. The late Daniel as we  knew him was a Partner of the Organization since February 2014 till his death. He was committed in promoting projects for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Africa and also had plans to establish one in his Country Cameroon, infact this is how he joined our Organization. His heart's desire was to work and help orphaned children. His immense contributions will forever be remembered. The Organization has indeed lost a valuable friend. We will miss him dearly. In God's hands he will rest, in our hearts he will live forever.

The Chairperson, Eminent Board Members, Board of Directors and the entire staff of the Organization extend their deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the wife, children, bereaved family and friends of the late Mr Tabi. May the LORD guide you and give you strength during this difficult time of sorrow and mourning.  MAY HIS SOUL REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE AND PERFECT DECORUM."

"Ih-yeuh!! You may be gone, but memories of your gentle nature will continue to shine our path in this labyrinth called earth. RIP Ni Dan!"

This tribute was added by Humphrey Abeh on 4th November 2014

"Bro Dan, yours was a candle that was suppose to burn for a century and not even the wind was suppose to put it out. I still can't understand why yours only lasted a mere 58 years. I would forever cherish our memories growing up together in our great village of Zang Tabi.  To say you will be dearly missed is an understatement. Your smiles, gentleness, kindness etc will endure forever. May your soul rest in eternal perfect peace."

This tribute was added by Olive Musoro on 3rd November 2014

"Rest In peace Ni Dan. we love you and the lord loves you even more.
Sis Oli may the lord continue to give you courage and may your spirit be filled with all the good times you and  Ni spent together. This is a separation of the flesh , Ni's  Spirit lives on .
From all The Musoros to the Toches and Tabi family , we share your pain and loss."

"My dearest Uncle Dan,
I was blessed to have you as my uncle on this earth. Your hands help raise a child that only aspired to leave this world a better place. I write these words with only joy, because you lived a life of love and always remained in good spirits whenever approached. Our family name will live forever.. God Bless til we meet again"

This tribute was added by Solomon Tabi on 25th October 2014

"Ni, Why so soon? You and I had projects we had to carry out back home together. Now you are gone leaving me alone. How am I supposed to carry on without you? If this is the way for you to tell me to carry on I'll be watching ,then you've done it. I'll keep the promise. The LORD needs your services more than we do. Our Dad Fon J.A. Tabi once said to us"You don't know the value until you loose it". I'll miss you forever.RIP"

To Oly and the rest of the family, may you all find solace in the Lord Almighty knowing Ni Dan is resting in peace."

"We are deeply saddened by the news of Ni Dan’s passing. Our heartfelt condolences to sister Olivia Tabi, his children (Wes, Joycy and Chantel ), the Manchos, the entire Tabi family in Zang-Tabi, and the NY Family of Cameroonians with whom Ni Dan has spent the last three decades.
Ni Dan was a very peaceful man who gave love and friendship to all he met. Always smiling, always happy,  always fun to be around. To his beautiful children and to his dear wife,  our prayer is that the memories of his simple life and peaceful nature will comfort you in his death. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
Bobe, for the Ndamukong Family."

"Hi Bro. Daniel, you really shocked me.  I saw you in Miami after many years of not seeing you and you looked so healthy with your usual soft smile.  Little did I know that was the last time on earth I was seeing you.  As the bible says God's ways are not our ways nor his thoughts our thoughts, this means we cannot question what he does.  Even as we mourn and cry for your exit we still believe that we shall meet again to never depart.  May the Angels welcome you as your soul rest in perfect peace. May the almighty God give strength to your wife and children for this untimely departure."

"It's the emptiest and yet the fullest of all human messages: 'Goodbye'.
-Kurt Vonnegut

I prefer to say farewell for now, until we meet again. I am forever grateful for all the times we shared and everything you taught me. I will never forget you.

R.I.P. Uncle Dan"

"Dear Joe,
May I through you extend sincere condolences to the Tabi and toche families that are bereaved following the passing on of Ni Dan. While I was never privileged to interact with the pleasant Ni Dan, I can imagine what this means to Gladys and the kids and I join you all to pray that all goes well hereafter.

In the drama of life, Each man is called to play his part and bow out. It is not up for debate or subject to any mandate. That is the pattern. Ni Dan, you did yours, and so, thanks and farewell.God bless you all,

Loss is monumental."
