We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly ,
In death we do the same .
It broke our hearts to lose you, you didn't go alone ,for part of us went with you,the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories
Your love is still our guide
I know you as an advicer of positive words.
Our family chain is broken,and nothing seems the same ,
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again
You daughter Njeh Cynthia Engwari

Papa, you were not only a success but you made others succeed. You leave the world better than you found it. You looked for the best in others and gave them the best you had. Daddy time can’t delete your footprints in our lives. Farewell daddy.

.....Dad.......
If I was to write a story, it will be the greatest ever told of mankind, ”A loving father with a heart of gold”. I would write a million pages but still will be unable to express your kindness and love for humanity. I love and miss you every single day . I am hurt but not sad because of the the words of Apostle Paul “For to me to live ID Christ and to die is gain.(Phi.1:21).

Farewell Daddy,

The pain saying farewell to you is enormous. It saddens my heart that I could not be physically present to take care of you through your sick years. You were a stain but loving father. Your were kind and selfless. I remember the hours you spent teaching Akum and I mathematics. You will always say "Timah go back and fetch Akum" when you see me returning from school without my brother. This taught me the value of care for each other. I remember your smiles from yester-years as if it was today. Thank you for all you taught us and God for your life well spent and what you stood for.

Go well Daddy,
Timah Achu

Daddy

No other appellation did i have for you growing up and descending the hills from Acha Tugi to savor the warmth of your household. A strict, stern no monsense but above all loving and caring Dad you were. Watching you gradually fade away at the verge of savoring the fruits of your sacrifice and guidance can't be sufficiently expressed with words.

we all loved you so profoundly and despite you having gone too soon, you in us. Take heart mommy as well as my brothers and sisters, it is well. Adieu daddy till we meet again

My papa the papa, you have left a void in me that can never be filled. Even though it hurts you are no more, I am happy you are no longer silenced by Alzheimer’s. Growing up with a dad who was ever present, caring and loving was the best gift in life. You taught me so much; confidence, self worth, love, respect, tons of maths, kindness, virtue. I will always remember how you loved us and took care of us. You never let anyone wake us up when we were asleep on the couch, you always said “don’t wake the child up, carry the child to bed”. Some of my fondest memories were sitting at your feet and looking up with innocent eyes just to ask for money. I used to pull the greys from your hair or dye your hair to earn some money. I was your “mami Maria” and “fine mami”. From a tender age, I always knew I was special, loved and could achieve anything I dreamt of if I worked hard. Your selfless love taught me how to love myself, others and know my self worth. You were an incredible human, you gave your all to your family, friends and community. The most selfless and honest person I know. It was truly an honor to have you as a father. You fought a good fight, you cheated death in 2015 and gave us more than 5 more years with you. You stayed, you were present at our weddings, graduations, birth of your grand kids, jobs, celebrations. Even though you couldn’t talk, I know you were proud of us. I miss you so much my papa. I know you are in a better place now. Rest on our guardian angel. I love you forever❤️.

Your daughter,
Mariette

It was hard for anyone with a pure mind and spirit not to love you Daddy Njei. Only wicked people could not appreciate the light you brought into the countless lives you impacted during your years on this earth. I'm still in a little denial but I repent because I know you are in the best place ever after many years of extraordinary strength and endurance as you fought health challenges.
I feel truly privileged to have been led to pray with you since 2018. I feel heartbroken because I was so hopeful that one day you'll be back to your feet and enjoy the fruits of your labour. I can never forget that Wednesday evening when we prayed on video and I heard you say Amen! Mami Grace was so full of excitement. We expected to experience more of these moments and I had plans to come spend some time with you with the kids if not for the Corona outbreak that messed up travel plans for us. Alas the story changed. I dare not say God did not answer our prayers. He is God all by Himself. I know for sure you are an overcomer and even the devil has been put to shame. God has and will still be glorified in your life and I know you are with him. That's what matters most.
May you find rest in the Lord. May your family and all those who love you be strengthened and comforted. May untimely death never be the portion of any member of your family in Jesus Name. But above all May we all that are still here search our lives and receive Jesus as our Lord and Saviour for no one knows the hour they'll be called to rest. Papa you have completed your race.
Mummy Grace, take heart! You are an example of a truly virtuous woman, wife and mother. You stood by Papa tirelessly till the last minute. You rejected the reports and believed God for the impossible. You are an inspiration. The Lord will never forsake you. Have courage mum.
To all the children, Sister Fri, Dr. Basile, Nelson, Mariette, Bentley, I am beyond proud of your sacrifices. Even daddy knew how much you loved him in every word and obvious actions. God has taken the glory. We submit to His will. It is well. Continue to be all that he wanted you all to be. No weapon fashioned against you shall ever prosper In Jesus Name.
Rejoice in the Lord.
Goodbye Daddy Njei.
❤❤❤ In our hearts forever your daughter

Ohh!!! Papa, well I probably only knew we were not related by blood just when I became older but who says your father must be the person to bring you forth to earth. So, let us scratch that. What a Mann you were, my siblings and I grew up being able to witness or were fortunate enough to witness your love and benefit from your wisdom. Pa was elegant, well-spoken and his presence was always felt every time he comes in.

My siblings and I will never forget how you were there for us in every point of our lives, we were always excited when our mum will announce that we are going to visit you, or you were going to pay us a visit. Just an announcement of your visit brought an extra joy in the house that day because, I mean who does not want to see you. Pa’s presence was always warm, also Pa had some sense of humour mixed with serious advice. Of course, his Suzuki jeep always announces his presence, and we were always excited and in competition to find out the first person to see the car coming when he comes visiting.

Pa we just want to let you know that your encouragement, your support, and the love you showed us has gone a long way to enable us to become the man/woman we are today. You have built a great family around you, who love and support each other just the way you will and have always wanted it to be. For that we will deeply miss you.

When Pa became sick, all we could always hope and pray was for Pa to get better (even for a day), so he understands or look at what he has achieved. We are so sad, that you left us so soon, we really wished you were here to see your fruits, but we choose to appreciate and celebrate you. Your impact in our lives and the values we have learnt both directly and indirectly from you. You are engraved in our hearts forever.

Farewell to you Papa
Tata on behalf of Ache, Dam, and Tebeh.

My Awesome daddy,papa de papa, is it really that until we meet again? I give God all the praise for having you as a father.Am only wondering why good pple don't last.As the first child in your home,you gave me the best life ever. Who would have given me such a best life if not you. I came to grow up and discovered myself with you and my sister and best mother ever. You all showed me the best love before you started having your own children(examplary once) . You thought us to be one and that love is growing so well as you planted it. My whole life with you till your separation has been sooo sweet. You sent me everywhere ever best to school. You nurtured me and so many others ,lots of badges graduated in our home before my eyes,as we have never been less than 18 people in the house . We never lacked anything,you were at the front almost every weekend to the farm,one of which the road was tudious. Papa I watched you carry bags of food from ''tonoti '' right up to the road where you pack the car,you braved all those hills,you did that many times so that when we all finish we will just walk without carrying anything. All these to provide enough for your population,which you did enjoy still adding more people on that number. Who in your position could do what you did to us. Oooo my Awesome daddy I remember once when I caught ill you took me everywhere for a solution. Only you and mum could really understand me here. Moreso, when I delivered,my son was sick you took him from me and stayed with him for some years treated him before giving him back to me. Some real parents don't do that. Daddy you were a generous soul for nature,the depth of the family need.I would have written this since but each time I start,tears stop me from continuing. We never had a tensed environment through out my more than 40 years stay with you ,so jovial with us all. I will forever miss you daddy with all the tens that passed through you. I wished I could be opportune to care for you while you were ill it still remains a burden in my heart.
If I could write a story it would have been the greatest ever told of a kind and loving dad with a heart of gold. Every single day I will remember the exemplary life you showed us.
For ever dad you will remain in my taughts and never die,until we meet again.

Akum Quinta.

Papa Mr Njei, it’s still hard to believe that you are gone. Thank you for being an amazing father, teacher, principal, and more to all of us.“Those we love can never be more than a thought away; for as long as there's a memory, they live on in our hearts”.
To Mami, Fri, Basile, Akum, Mariette and Benley I wish you all strength for today and hope for tomorrow. I believe that tears can heal, memories can comfort, and love lives on forever.

Rest well papa. Love you.

My Brother, My Friend. I can never forget my first contact with you during my early life of late 70's. You were always properly, dressed wearing trousers called "apaga " or "bongo", high heel shoes called "salamadas" with long sleeved shirts, and parading the lone street in the village especially during holidays. His name was Ni EMMANUEL.

I admired him and wished he could greet or just talk to me especially as I learnt he was a Big Teacher from Ecole Normal Surperieur Bambili. During preparations for the Annual Moghamo Students Association Come together, I gathered courage and introduced myself to him as a Form 1 student of PSS Batibo. After a brief interrogation Ni EMMANUEL responded "eyeeh" this is good news, I would pick you up tomorrow at 8:00am so that we go for the launching of the cultural week.

Next day, a Renault 12 car arrived to pick me up, guess who came, it was Ni EMMANUEL, what a joyful day to the entire family to see and receive him. A few minutes later we drove off and I could now attend students Association meetings, he assisted and protected everywhere we went.

In May 1980, as a Form 3 student I received an official mail through the School, guess the Sender, it was Ni EMMANUEL, writing from GHS Mamfe, extending greetings, and advising me to study the Sciences and Mathematics in particular. The reply of this letter, though written but could not be posted because of lack of stamps, however we discussed during holidays in the presence of his calm and beautiful wife whom he introduced to me by name Ma Grace.

Ni EMMANUEL, you became my guardian, Mentor, inspiration and above all Big Brother. Thanks immensely Big Brother for advising me to write the competitive Entrance into ENS Bambili, which I did successfully in 1987. You are indeed God sent. Upon completion in 1990, you now call me" Prof “. In 1991 you took me to the GCE Marking centre in Bamenda for the marking exercise which I began and continued till date .

Big Brother, you taught me many things, amongst which was the fact that life was a marathon full of many challenges and always advised me on how to overcome them but today who would do it? You told me education is the key that opens all doors and that we should ensure children go to good School, yes, we did. Thank God Almighty for showering His blessings on the family.
In 2012, Big Brother, you fell sick in Buea during the marking of Exams, Mum and I cut short the marking exercise and I drove you back home for Medical attention, little did I know that things shall never be the same as your life took an unusual and unexpected turn. We rushed you back and forth between hospitals and the situation was rolling out of control and finally you had to move to USA for intensive medical care.

Big Brother, Ni EMMANUEL, we contracted every possible hand on deck to save your life, but I guess God had a better plan. I promise to play the advisory role in the family while thanking God for His abundant blessings.
What an epitome you were, go and rest peacefully in the bosom of our Lord, till we meet to part no more. Adieu Adieu!!! Ni Ni EMMANUEL NJEI.

Your Junior Brother
Ni Dam.

Posted by Constance Taminang on March 16, 2021
Papa Emelda! Mr Njei Emmanuel! We are very saddened that you exited so soon. I call it early exit because you were a very good and pleasant man with lovely wife and smart kids.You have worked so hard with your wife to raise your kids and now is the time to enjoy but have departed to the heavenly.
I remember when I came to GBHS Mbengwi to look for admission. I was directed to your office and when I presented my folder to you and you saw my names, you asked me if I'm related to Mr Taminang and I said yes. You said he is your friend and immediately you granted me an admission. You said " go to form 5 B and make sure you study hard" There I met your daughter Fri in that same class. She was a very bold girl. She had the courage to address the whole class. Then she visited our room with cute little shy Basile at that time. Then we became friends through University until here, then I met Nel Jay then later Marinette.
I always asked Fri of you. She told me you are doing well and that Emile her son has come home to visit with you and the family. Then later she told me you were sick. We prayed for you Papa. Then you finally came here. I kept asking about you, praying for you, wishing that you recover so that you can enjoy all of the fruits of your labor. Your kids have grown up to be very successful! Oh death where is your sting?
But the great Master called you. So you responded! Our hearts bleed. Go well Daddy. Have rest at the bosom of the Lord God Almighty. You fought a good fight. You have completed the race. Until we meet again, join the host of Angels in heaven and continue to watch over your family.
I declare in the Mighty of Jesus Christ that this family is covered with the blood of Jesus and must all live long enough to enjoy all the fruits of their labor
Posted by Nelvis Njei on March 16, 2021
I heard of your death with great sorry and lamentation.

You were such a brilliant, vibrant, and hard working man when you were in Batibo years back, as Principal of GHS Batibo. This was a very demanding and challenging task, yet you still had time to be an active CMF member and chair man of the Church's Project Committee. All these tasks, you handled them successfully and joyfully. 

As if that was not enough, you still supported your wife, Mrs. Grace Njei, whose hands were equally full. She was a house wife, mother, teacher, and another demanding job: the CWF Presbytery Secretary of Batibo Presbytery when I was the CWF Presbytery President. Indeed she was my right hand.

You were a very loving and pleasant couple. We in Batibo appreciated your services to us in the Church and in the community.

From nowhere, an unexplained illness came and knocked you down for a number of years, which was very challenging to the family. Despite that, your wife Grace, the kids and family were very courageous, loving and caring to you, from that moment till now that you have answered God's call, and passed on to Glory.

We can only give thanks and glory to God and say "His will be done." My heartfelt condolences to the entire family for this great loss. May his soul R I P.

A tribute to the best dad in the world, “Mr Ngalame” was our name when I was a little girl. A very loving father, very forgiving, you’ll always tell me” once beaten twice shy” whenever I do something wrong, a father who will go extra miles to protect his children especially me, you called me :“Tawariya, Ibo bambili, Ibocominyoh”, I could go on and on with all the pet names. You traveled through dust and mud to ensure that I stayed in school, you gave me hope for the future when I felt like all hope was lost, you brought out the strength in me, built my self confidence and taught me to be strong. You believed in me when no one else will, you trusted me and held me in high esteem when no one else did. You are my first love, in you I see an exemplary father and what a husband should be. You taught me to be compassionate, generous and selfless. You gave all you had and several times you were without yet you were happy because you were able to make others smile. Though your body was inflicted with sickness, your spirit stayed stronger, you kept fighting and gave us the opportunity of a life time, 10 good years to take care of you, we had the opportunity to show you how much we love and care about you. Your grandchildren and our spouses were privileged to have met a great man like you. You have left a void in me but I know that God’s time is the best. I feel jealous because I know you are happy where you are without me but I also know we shall meet again. Love you so much dad, until we meet again in God’s kingdom.

Good Day My Boss, l find it very difficult to talk about you in the Past tense. You were all l had , you inspired me, took me like your son and l am left alone. I can still remember the last time l meet you in the House in Bamenda. Little did l know that this our last encounter.

Good people don't live long. Yes, l know it is God's Will to take you away from this sinful world. May Your gentle soul rest in peace until we meet to part no more..

Thank God for the gift of your life .... we are blessed for your footprints are there for all to see.
What is Man, for he lives today and tomorrow he lives no more. RIP Ni Emma.

Abuh Ngwe, ashia, for this very huge loss for you and your kids, and the entire Njei's family.!!!!.

It seems most of the very valueable and influencial persons on earth with a lot of positivity to offer, hardly live long enough to spread their positive influence to enough persons, before exiting this world.

Emmanuel, it is only God alone who knows why.

But one very clear fact is that, it is obvious that you are certainly looking down now on earth, with a lot of satisfaction, for you raised a very successful family; with very successful and very respectful kids, and a very loving and dedicated wife, who will continue your positive work on earth; though, it kind of seems unfair that you could not be here, long enough to enjoy your family's success story.

But again, only God knows why.

Ashia Grace, Fri, Bazil, Nel, Marinette, Burnley; and the entire Njei's family, abroad and at home.

We will keep praying that your Dear husband, a very loving and "hands-on" daddy; who also happened to have been a very generous son, uncle, nephew, friend; (this great guy), called Mr. Emmanuel Njei, whom I have known for almost all my life; should REST in PERFECT PEACE !!!

Emmanuel, you have fought a very good fight and finally, you are at rest and certainly, at peace.

Stay very blessed, with the Lord.!!!

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).

If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord (Romans 14:8).

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14).

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55).

For they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection (Luke 20:36).

Papa de Papa, Continue to rest well. The mouth cannot speak what the heart feels therefore it is time to remain silent, for your Spirit to rest within us the eternal hope of Glory.

May your gentle spirit live forever...

My God, nothing shocks me in this life anymore. Weh Papa! You have fought the good fight and left an army of children, filled with wonderful memories of you to continue your legacy.

Be consoled in the word and therein do rejoice, yes, do rejoice.....For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Receive my condolences bestie, Mariette, Akum, Basil, Fri and Mama Grace.

Love you Papa & Rest well indeed.

Pa Njei E. Atakuro, I am glad for the lessons you thought me. You were a father and a model to emulate. God actually blessed you with excellent fruits of your endeavours. It is time for you to enjoy the fruits but, just like Job in the Bible God said you were good to be in his kingdom. You were born and grew up with a vibrant voice but, for a couple of years you have been unable to talk and with deteriorating health. What really happened that you lost your health? God said do not ask questions to his work. However, thanks for supporting me shape my life carrier and I am grateful for the many siblings you have given to us. Their presence makes it easier for me to overcome many challenges. I am proud of you. Rest in peace and hopefully see you at the appointed time.

               " I can not say and i will not say
                That he is dead, he is just away.
               with a cheery smile and a wave of hand
               He has wandered in to an unknown land;
               And left us dreaming how very fair
              Its needs must be, since he lingers there.
              And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
             From the old-time step and the glad return-
                Think of him faring on, as dear
            In the love of there, as the love of here.
         Think of him still the same way, I say and will continue to say!!!!
           He is not dead, he is just away"

Ni Emma,

Uwah, as we, your very close friend, used to call one another.
So it is true that you have left to meet your brother and friend Wilfred Fomumbod in the land of no return?
Life in this world is full of pains. Perhaps you too experienced this and decided to depart.
Adieu! adieu Ni Emma Njei, Adieu.

I did just that he wie both were were happy.
After a long time we came and met again in and belong to on CMF group in SILVER SPRING PC - MARYLAND when he later fell sick till his transition in glory.  Mama grace , Stand firm in the Lord. We are with you always. Let the Holy Spirit come and take control.
May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Charles Nyam

It is very unfortunate that papa departed without saying good bye. He was an incredible dad. He provided for his family and always made sure everyone is at peace. I'm grateful for papa's life and I will miss him. He was always in a good spirit, even until the day he departed from this sinfulworld. We should all remember that the lord gave him to us has also taken the soul of our beloved father to rest in peace(Job 1:21).

In life we loved you dearly ,
In death we do the same .
It broke our hearts to lose you, you didn't go alone ,for part of us went with you,the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories
Your love is still our guide
I know you as an advicer of positive words.
Our family chain is broken,and nothing seems the same ,
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again
You daughter Njeh Cynthia Engwari

Papa, you were not only a success but you made others succeed. You leave the world better than you found it. You looked for the best in others and gave them the best you had. Daddy time can’t delete your footprints in our lives. Farewell daddy.
