ForeverMissed
As we approach the 2nd year anniversary of KANGWA IAN NG'AMBI's home going, we created this site in memory of our loved one, our Son, Brother, Father and Husband. He will forever be in our hearts.

Kangwa was a very friendly and truthful person. He was also a very honest, humble and good at listening to others. He offered well tailored advise specifically for each individual. He always made something valuable out of any resource which might seem to be useless to others. He made good use of his creative mind. I have never met a special person like him and I doubt if I will ever do. He respected family and friends. He always created time for his family and for his friends too. May His Soul Rest in Peace.

Kasonde, Indeed today you captured the essence of an alternative universe that is invisible but ever present, and made us feel Ian's presence .
He was duly remembered.
May God continue to comfort and strengthen you and your family

So many in this world search for home and yet many will stay lost because they think too much and feel too little. And that is the riddle;
Home has always been about how it feels.

Your big smile/laugh always filled the air, never a dull moment catching up on Ndola stories. It was such a shock to learn you had gone so suddenly and so soon. I pray for your family that they may have the strength to journey through without you. You & Kasonde one of the best love tales ❤ ever. May God strengthen her to sojourn this painful path. God bless your family Ian.

My best friend, my brother, you were never my brother-in-law, my encourager. You gave me the courage to move on in things l can not change, you strengthen me with your words, Ba Peggy kuu kosa-you will come out of it. We first met at my house in Emmasdale when Faith brought you for the introduction. Your loving kindness, positivity, and courage, a free heart, an open-minded, full of laughter person you were. Your presence was full of positive loving welcoming energy, strength to your family and some of us. There were never low moments around you, you were a warm-hearted person with wise intelligent words for me each time we met. Always missed.

The life of the party. Last event we hang together was Mukukas Wedding. Last trip was to see dad. Glad to have had the priviledge and honour to see you before your parting. Last serious discussion was about a trip to South Africa. Gods plans are indeed different from ours. Miss you and rest well. You were and was the best of Kangwa Ian Ngambi.

Kangwa was a person who really loved togetherness of all family members, and the only person in our family who I could discuss business ideas with and he would make nice suggestions, I really miss him

Soul mates

We met when i was twelve. We had a connection and our paths kept on crossing, where our family moved to we met. Kangwa was my fellow traveler on the journey of life. We needed one another to grow beyond the limitations of our individual selves. Our needs were met, he refined me and helped me heal and become a strong, hardworking confident soul. He became passionate, loving and more patient. To borrow his words' we completed one another'. We were family, friends, each other's go to person, protectors, motivator, we knew our minds and hearts. He was my superhero, my angel on earth, he guided me for 31 years, a lifetime and i am refined thanks to him. 

Faith without works is dead

He always believed that prayer or faith alone was not enough, it always required a corresponding action. And once he said' we make a great team because you love God and you pray so much and i love God and make it practical'

The one thing I loved about him was how authentic he was.how fearless he was ,The fact that he would make people tremble a  discplinarian but a loving father.His wisdom the fact that he believed he could do all things and nothing was impossible.my uncle was bold and courageous its no wonder, His last advice to me was to not remain a duck but fly like an eagle."Do you want to be a duck or an eagle "? Cause I only raise eagles.

My grandma always says our greatest gift is whose lives we touch and what difference we make. 
 May he always be remembered for the impact he made in our lives.i can confidently say he lived as his true self .may it inspire all of us to live as our true self and live a purposeful life.

An athlete's Farewell

Shared by Faith ngambi on March 27, 2021
It was the fastest and longest i had ever seen him run that morning. He went round the circuit 3 times as though running for the last time and when he was done he said " God has always been there for us and we have had each other. We have been each other's best friends and shoulders to lean on. God has seen us through alot of difficult times, when i had the accident, we still started the butchery despite me being in hospital, when people though we would'nt have children we now have so many. I know sometimes it feels like the dry season is taking to long to pass, but God always comes through for us and the seeds we are planting now will soon flourish. I do not want to ever hear you complain, give thanks to God even in hard times, this too will pass"
