"Daddy, I can't believe it's been a year already since your transactionz to the next world. Seems like yesterday. Daddy, saying you are terribly missed is an understatement. You are everything one could ask of a father. Since your passing, I finally got to believe in the saying that good people don't live to be old. GOD alone knows why. Daddy, I hope your namesake, Atabong will get to understand when he gets of age. Daddy, thank you for being a great dad."

Ndi Nkem J.J.A, we are blessed and honored to be counted worthy to celebrate 1 year anniversary of your eternal journey. A year ago, we were in tears but we thank God that a year after we are celebrating in joy the love and the family spirit that you lived and taught us to adopt as a way of life.
We give God the glory for the life we shared. We continue to depend on your intercession and we pray that the Almighty will grant you a peaceful rest until we meet again on that Resurrection Morning.
Intercede for your loving wife for God to grant her the strength, consolation and the good health that she needs to carry on with the family.
Daddy, we keep missing you every day. You remain fresh in our hearts.
Rest in peace Daddy."

"Daddy, it's one year today since you left this world for the beautiful kingdom of God.  What is heaven like? I take consolation in knowing that you are surrounded by a boundless sea of love and joy. Your grand baby is already a year now and counting. She is full of life and is always very busy around the house. Don't ask me what she is busy doing. I look forward to the day when we will tell Delyanne about her granddad, a very kind man with an extremely inspiring way of life. Someday, we shall meet again and shall reflect on June 25th 2016, a day that marked your triumphant transition to the Glorious kingdom of God. I will forever love and remember you."

"Daddy, it's been a year today that I can't even talk to you. It is really still fresh in my mind. I can't believe that I am even writing this. I can't  believe that you never got the chance to come to our house. Daddy you did not even have a walk or drive with your son-in-law. Daddy I wanted you to come so we could go pick your grand children from school.
       Daddy, I remember when we had to name our second child and you told us to name her after your wife. Daddy you were so selfless.
        Daddy I'm still in pain but I try to think of the good memories and say thank God my dad was strong and able to provide for us. Daddy you are hero and you will forever be missed. I love you daddy."

"How time flies...  already a year has gone by. I don’t know where to begin, each time i try to think, it brings tears to my eyes, you were my rock, you were everything to me, you did things for me, you did things for all of us. You left us but it was too soon for me daddy.  Nobody will fill up this space only God, daddy your death was a great shock to me, even till now I have not recovered. It was a great loss to us the entire family, but believes with God there is still hope for us. You are the best father and the greatest example. I love you daddy and I will see you again.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God,  rest in peace......."

"Happy Birthday Daddy!

We ought to have been celebrating your 60th anniversary today. I can imagine the joy and the lovable conversation that we would have had today...
This makes me miss you more and more.
I miss your wonderful smiles, jokes and love.

Your grand daughter Princess Delyanne would have loved to squeeze  your fingers, and jump up and down everywhere around you today.

We thank God for the wonderful life you lived and the legacy you instilled and left with us.

Continue your fatherly love from the Heavens above.
Even though out of the physical sights, you remain very close to our hearts every second of the day.

Continue to intercede for us, tell God to send the Holy Spirits and Angels to comfort your beloved wife and kids.

Daddy, have a wonderful (first) birthday feast with the Heavenly Saints; where your parents and many others shall be sitting with you on the table.

Until we meet again, Requiesce in pace!
With great love,

Colado Valentine A. NGUBEJOH
    Son in-law"

"Your Jokes, and smile will be missed forever, Your leading role in family and community issues are still fresh in our minds and will never fade away. I vividly remember every New Year Day (Mbebafuo's Family End of year feast) we will joke about everything. Your sincerity and frankness were values you did not compromise. We learned a lot from your way of life. All we can do now is make you proud by following in your footsteps while you rest in the bosom of the Lord.

farewell....Daddy Nkem Jinya"

It's been 17 days that the shocking waves of your eternal transition reached us. I keep pondering if this has been a dream...

A humble man you were. A loyal husband and father you stood the test of time. A Christian family you built. A selfless servant you served the community and the nation of Cameroon.

Throughout the struggle to regain your health, you remain faithful to Christ, believing in God who surpasses all creatures and power. You looked up to Jesus Forsaken on the cross with courage and hope until the very last minute.

Thanks to your exceptional qualities of good parenting, you blessed me with the most beautiful, intelligent, humble, God fearing, understanding, loving and caring lady as a life partner.

Your demise has generated a big space that nobody can fill. You left us so soon, but you left us with a legacy. My 10 years of closeness to you groomed me with those aspects of yours- a man of substance.

Your little grand daughter, Princess Delyanne shall miss that wonderful grand dad. We pray God pardon any of your ills and grant you eternal peace until we meet again.

You'll remain fresh in our memories-----Adieu Daddy

Colado (Son-in-law)"

"Pa Nkem Njinya or Daddy as we normally referred to you. Its hard to believe especially as i did not have the chance to say good bye but I have to accept the fact that you are no more.
You were indeed a Dad. You thought me love, happiness and most importantly the simplicity of life.  As it goes, “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”. You will forever remain in our hearts. We will miss you."
