Sister, I thought you travelled to come back but as each year passes I discover that there is nothing better anyone can do than to embrace the bitter fact that it been 6 years we forever miss you.

Dear Dodo ,
How are you doing 6 years seems like it was yesterday that you left us . Each time I think of someone to talk to it’s you that comes to my mind but I still do talk to you in prayers ! I want you to know that I will always love you ! I still find it hard to see someone that was like you in this world ! Like I always told you , you were on unique woman ! Continue to Rest ! Adieu Dodo! Time does not heal our pain it only makes us understand better !

They have all forgotten you ever was there. And thats how it is. I really wish you knew what.was behind their smiles.
Since.u left nothing has been the same. Your enemies have tried many times and failed woefully. They have not given up though. The truth is keeping us strong. I wish they could listen to your last words. I know god no want make bad man ei die but I wish they could take your place.
Glad to have had you.

Sister I know you are watching down on us. I still feel like I am a fool that you left so abruptly. I am proud I have achieved half of what I promised you but the ache that you will nit be there to see the end is what sickens my soul. But I know it will put glad in your heart. I see your face and I know.We missed you seconds, minutes, hours and now its years. On ne choisir pas la famille comme des amies. Jtm mais frenchement tu me manque enormement.

The road is still thorny as you always told us, but it is very difficult to continue moving without your guidance during trying times, I just realized I depended on you on so many issues and it has not and will not be easy to settle without you. Rest in peace my man, and continue to look over us

Posted by Fr. Nicholas Mbogu on February 3, 2013
Mama Zamcho, I remember meeting you last two years and as usual you were full of life and cheerful. You asked me of the two Babanki orphans I left in your care before leaving Bamenda. You took them to your house and treated as them as yours. You sent them to school and became a mother for the two. You will ever be missed but not forgotten.
Posted by Fr. Nicholas Mbogu on February 3, 2013
Florence, you were a good woman and mother. You were a faithful catholic and may God grant you the reward of those who have love Him in the Neighbour. You light will ever remain aglow.

Remembering is the heart's own way of holding loved ones close
n keeping us in constant touch with those who mean the most.
A year on n it's like yesterday! We thank the Lord for your life n ask Him to draw us closer to Him that we may know ourselves to be nearer to you who are with Him. RIP

I cannot overstate how comfortable I felt every time I came over to visit. Your warm welcome, jokes and ensuing smile will be sorely missed. I have missed them for long already while you were still with us but it is yet another thing to know that the opportunity is gone. You helped guide us in early adulthood when I was most vulnerable.Thank you for the love and attention.
Posted by Maria Zamcho on March 18, 2012
It's Mother's Day today and I should have been on the phone listening to you telling me how you are celebrating the day. Yeah! You were one great mum and I do really miss you. Happy Mother's Day Dodo! RIP

Posted by Elizabeth Chibikom on December 29, 2011
well this is a special tribute to my late sister..
Death has no regret and nobody can question GOD.
But if by her "death" let there be 'peace'.By her 'death'
let there be correction for what has not been 'corrected'.
may the merciful LORD grant peace to your soul.

My dear Mama, dear Dodo! Oh how my heart bleeds but it won't keep me from celebrating the beautiful (both inside and out) woman that you are. I became a child of God at your hands. You guided me to God's altar to receive the body of His son. There are many of us that you chose to bring to Him. No doubt, a "welcome good and faithful servant" greeting is what you received on Dec. 08th. Luv U
Posted by Denis Fon on December 22, 2011
'Den' I can still hear the echo of your voice calling me as no other person called me the way you do. You showed me that love has no boundaries and cared for everybody you came across. Even when you were not feeling great you still represented me out of town to my in-laws and made us proud. I am forever indebted to your love and concern. I see you smiling at us and wishing us well. chao

I know you distantly as the mother of my friends and closely though briefly as a friend andmother to my sister Zila. I vividly remember you asking me to leave her funeral dress to you as your responsibility. I remember you leaving very early for Bali mortuary that morning in 2009 to dress her up. We are distraught Mama.RIP.I speak of you in the present as I speak of Zila. You are with us

I remember when I first visited on the 26th of October 2009 with my colleague after Maria's delivery. Memories of the very warm welcome are still very fresh in my mind.

'Dear mum, I was shocked when I heard of your passing on. You did not show any sign of your passing on from this life to life during your visit to Nairobi. I remember in gratitude the work we did together during the diaconate of Rev. JB and remained assured that you've gone to prepare a place for us. will miss you mum.'

Dodo, thank you for being a mother and friend to many. You'll always be remembered for your modesty,hardwork,selflessness,as well as your great love and zeal for the Church. Working with you at JB's ordination was a great pleasure. Your shooting stars will miss you, and yet we believe that the Lord has plucked a beautiful flower for Himself. May you bloom forever in His presence. RIP Dodo !

"Mama Zamcho", I've just got the terrifying but hopefull news. You are no longer among us, but at home, by our Father. I'll never forget your engagement and sincere sens of charity, which are true signs of your profound faith. You'll be in my heart in the Eucharist I'll celebrate for you. And from where you are, pray for us who are still on our Pilgrimage on earth.

Your legacy lives on especially in the many hearts you touched. What better way to reflect on your life than to reach out to the many in need during this festive season and always. You welcomed every stranger and you were never tired of giving. Hard to accept that you are gone, but your were happy to go because you said you had completed your work on earth. I think you could still be doing more, but guess that's why you are gone so you can watch over us better. Continue to RIP.

At my Deaconate Ordination in Nairobi

Shared by Maria Zamcho on December 8, 2014

When Tata and Dodo arrived Nairobi for my deaconate ordination in March 2011, it was a wonderful moment for me. Little did I know that she will be gone by December. She read the first reading at the ordination mass, and my deaconate year classmates were really happy with that. Mgr Francis Lysinge who had celebrated the weeding of Tata and Dodo was the ordaining prelate.Needless to say it was a communion moment for Tata Dodo and myself.

There is no doubt that Dodo cried at that mass. I remember when she came to my first vows in Douala in September 2003, with Aunty Pauline Tchateh, she creid throughout the ceremony. 

The week that Dodo and Tata spent at Nairobi was memorable in this sense that she saw what she had prayed for, that is my ordination. I beleive that as she supported many vocations, she had peace in her heart, seeing the bishop place his hands on me. 

This week as we prepare to bury Sister Feli, we are really heart broken as a family mourning three years on at the same period and asking God to open our eyes so that we may see his will in our lives.

One thing is sure. My ordination was not just an event, it was Dodo's moment. Who cannot remember that she cooked two days running, for 200 people each time?  She was the host of that event. She had her moment, she saw my ordination. 

As I reflect 3 years on, I know that she must be remembered for the love that she put in everything she did. She was determined to help each person, and every person. As I reflect on my work and on family and about friends, one thing is certain. If you put in all your love, God will give you a way. Not necessarily the one you thought, but a big way it will be. Just do not miss it because you were waiting for the ULTIMATE opportunity. For sure, if she was waiting for my priestly ordination, she would have missed God's time. She had her moment at my deaconate ordination.
