I remember mother's day 2015 when I came to deliver your chocolate bouquet ordered by auntie Elinge.I was in such awe at the way you read aloud every word on your card in excitement. I was even more surprised at the fact that you could still read without glasses at age 90.one would think at that age little surprises like these will mean nothing to you, but no, I watched you Express your excitement and appreciation in every ways that you could.
You'll be fondly remembered Mama.continue to rest in power.

Dear Mama, it is with great sadness that we learned of your passing to eternity. I fondly remember our years in Buea. You were a great inspiration to me and baby Norita. You opened your heart to us, you brought us so much joy, and you were always there for all who came to you. Though we miss you, we are comforted by the fact that you are now resting with the Lord. Thank you for being a great mother to us, and thank you for your love, support and guidance over the years. Though we mourn, we are reminded that, “A mom’s hug lasts long after she lets go.” Rest In Perfect Peace ♥️

Mama Catherine Ebie Musoko, I just learnt you are known as “Makaty” and a legend on merit as you blazed many paths. I never met you but your accomplishments and the values you instilled, as exemplified in one of my Best Friends Forever, your daughter Susan Elinge, whom you named after your own mother, say it loud about your purposeful-driven life in our transient world. Intellect, Grace, Compassion, Ethics are your legacies that would never fade in the circles and communities you inspired. Let the Angels sing along with you as you reside in one of the mansions of your Heavenly Father. Let your cherished memories nourish the souls of your dear children and family as they wearily come to terms with your transition. Long Live Makaty! as those who rest on the side of the Lord never die.

Ma, you were more than a tutor to some of us. You treated us like your own children. The love you showed has given us the confidence we have today, even in the mist of life's turmoil. Thank you so much and rest in peace mama. You will be greatly missed.

MORE THAN A GREAT TEACHER

Rest in peace Mah!
I remember as a little girl in Saker coming to you for help and you never hesitated nor failed me. I know God directed me to you because throw out my life He puts great people in my path.
Mah you were a great English teacher, who never missed a single opportunity to correct my crooked grammar even outside the classroom. I have two words that are forever associated with you and they bring your name and a smile every time I use then.You corrected me and I remember like yesterday.
Thank you Mah!
I remember you matching the whole class in a straight line to the Newspaper office in town to have a lecture from the editor.
Thank you for the lessons and the great memories.
I think of you this morning with tears in my eyes but I know the smiles will return.
Go well Mah and rest in peace!

My Iya Mbombo, my mother, my friend, my guide,
Gratitude overwhelms me such that my words could never explain, but some of your favorite words come close "Thank you, Thank God"
You are with me forever and I am with you forever, and that's how it will remain, forever.
Love,
Iya Mbombo

Learning religious songs in Duala

Shared by Catriona Ekollo on November 17, 2020
My Mbamba and I spent a lot of our time together learning about the good Lord, the Holy Bible and songs of praise. 
She loved singing beautiful melodies in Duala language and would "la la la la" whenever she didn't remember the words immediately. The first one I can remember learning with her just before my baptism was "Na Salō" which spoke about how small we are as humans, but reassured that the good Lord doesn't care about that when He showers us with blessing.

My favorite of these songs one this year has been "Kristo a Tondi Mba" reminding me of God's unmeasurable love for me, and mind. My mbombo was a woman of gratitude and till her very last days on earth, she was to be heard saying "Thank You, Thank God" and so through my pain, my gratitude remains. Na som Loba o nyol'a ndola'O.

Cooking Lessons in Great Soppo

Shared by Catriona Ekollo on November 13, 2020
My Mbombo and I would wake up early in the morning and after thanking God, cleaning ourselves and eating serious breakfast "for strength" we would set out to the backyard bench and prepare the day's meal. I was about 4-5 years old but I remember washing the bitter-leaf, onions, and other ingredients in a small basin, ready for her to cut. Wether it was Okro soup or Ndole, there had to be greens, because vegetables are key nutrients. After ingredients were prepared, Uncle Moyo would make the fire in the outdoor traditional kitchen. And there I would sit and watch it boil with the other children. I would gather all left over ingredients, some salt here, some onion slices there, and save them for a soup of my own later in the day. As soon as lunch was eaten and everyone retired from the kitchen, I was back outside putting to practice my own lessons. Gathering leafs from the garden trees (sometimes guava, sometimes other random grass), I would make a tiny soup with my saved ingredients from the main meal and beg Uncle Moyo to blow the firewood under my fire. After my soup was ready I would bring it to Iya Mbombo to taste it and in true fashion, she would eat it but also praise my efforts. We would revisit the recipes over the years until I mastered them all and became in charge of main meals myself.

Thank You my Iya Mbombo, for your unending love and patience. I love you, forever.
