Dear Mum,

We loved you so much, but God said He loves you more. You left us at such a young age. Mama, may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. May you ask our mother Mary to intercede for us.

"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.

This wonderful woman and mother will be missed. Know that you and your family are my prayers.

Dodo, the reason I will never forget you, is because you wore a smile always; they say it costs nothing yet it mends everything. You practiced smiling till your end on earth. You could even afford one for me despite the agony you were going through. Thanks a lot for the lesson. Dodo who'll decorate the Cathedral again? Well I think God needs you to take care of some decorations up there.

Flo, you lived your whole life sharing love and warmth:
To children in Lourdes, street kids, orphans;
To women: Rural women now have inheritance rights,
To the Church - CWA, the clergy, Christians, alter!
Your experience as a female next of kin set a precedence. And your book? God touched you early and deeply and thank you for being my friend.
Your returns are great!

Dodo, this came too soon. Thank you for being the loving and caring mother to so many of us. One thing I learned from you is your gentle, caring and selflessness. You were a role model to many young girls in Nitop 1. May your gentle soul rest in peace.  Adieu Dodo.

I was privileged to spend a few days in Bamenda in July 2007 living in Zamcho’s house. I cannot forget the motherly care I received from mama Florence Zamcho. I felt at home and experienced the love of a caring mother. I met in her a great example of charity and devotion.
Why do you seek the living among the death? She is already there. She has been raised with the Lord she served all her life.

sometimes God takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything he gave us! God this one is too hard to take!! but may your will be done!

Grant her eternal rest, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her faith strengthen the faith of her loved ones.
Posted by Ngwa Julius on December 14, 2011
My man, I have been asking myself many questions since you passed on. Why did you have so much impact on my life and decided to leave when you know fully well I still desperately need you? Dodo you thought us the warmth of human heart, accepting multitudes from different background and spent your whole life working in the wine yard of the LORD through showing love to all.Adieu my man!

I first personally met Mama Zamcho when she served at the Post Office in Bamenda, and the manner in which she attended to me really marked me.I also learnt of her fervent membership at the CWA, just like my mother. I was glad she was living her Faith- her attention, good service and motherly attitude, was enough testimony. She has fought the good fight. RIP, Ma.
Posted by Barbara Awa on December 13, 2011
Dodo, "Madame Yancho" as I fondly called you, you have fought the good fight and have come to the end of the race. You did it with a lot of Grace, Selflessness and Love. Dodo, may your good works go before you and may Mama Maria whom you honored while on earth give you that loving embrace which you deserve. Rest Dodo, Rest in perfect peace. You light shines on never to be lost. Adieu.

We miss you. I am thankful I knew you .Rest in Peace Dodo.

Posted by Maria Zamcho on December 12, 2011
Dodo I remember how you put me first for the entire world to see. You always went without and asked nothing in return. You taught me love by giving unselfishly. You would often go out of your way to care for those who were in need and never put yourself before others. You never told a lie to teach me honesty. By never giving up on anybody you taught me to be strong. I love and will truly miss you

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. 

Eight years already

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.
