"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."
