Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names. Mr. Takang KHA was a good man, death will not kill his name.

 "...those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isiah 40: 28-31. Mr. Takang KHA waited for the LORD and renewed his life with strength, he has mounted up with wings like eagles, he shall not be weary, he shall walk and not faint in the LORD'S Kingdom.

 If a life is worth living, it's worth remembering. My dad lived a life that is worth remembering. He was born to serve, he died still serving.

 Excepts of Funeral Poems:  I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU

When I am gone, release me, let me go,


I have so many things to see and do

You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears.


But be thankful we had so many good years.


I gave you my love, and you can only guess

How much you've given me in happiness.


I thank you for the love that you have shown,

But now it is time I traveled on alone.

Bye  bye  bye byeeeeeeeeeeee     Papa

Veronica Besong Takang: Albany, New York ( USA)


" People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad." Marcel Proust

Pa, I still think of you daily and as your supposed 71st birthday approached, I thought this would have been that perfect time to place a call to wish you happy birthday. Even though we did not get the opportunity to celebrate your 71st here on earth, we will get a chance some day in the new world. As you continue to RIP, guide us in our ways .

Pa eventhough time flies like the wind your thoughts and memories will never fly away. May your gentle soul rest in peace.
Posted by Enow Takang on May 24, 2015
God saw you were getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me."

With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hardworking hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
   It is well,we miss you so much. RIP Papa. Enow

In those yesteryears when we were academically groping to find our paths, Pa Takang beamed a light that brought Geography to life. The words of L. Grossman "Gone too soon" reflect the real concern that rare specimens of his ilk have not and may never be replaced. RIP Pa Takang.

The man with confidence in himself gains the confidence of others. That is the lesson I learnt during my secondary school days under his administration. You remain a source of inspiration. Bobe and Prof. TAKANG, may your soul rest in peace.

I still can't believe that Boh Mbong is gone. I dare say he ran a good race and has gone for his coronation. I am blessed to have known him and to have had him direct and discipline me and many others, during our most vulnerable and turbulent growing

What a rare species of a man you were? did I get the time to get to know you better. Could I have had tea with you in your always crowded house? Could we have talked the father - child talk. Could I have tapped wisdom from You? You went too soon, too

Your Life, Our Joy, Forever Missed!

Shared by Enow Takang on May 21, 2012


    A year has gone by, yet your memories are still fresh on our minds
             Just like yesterday
    We can still hear your voice  
            Just like yesterday
    Asking us how each an everyone was doing
            Just like yesterday
    You asked how Mami was doing
            Just like yesterday
    You asked me to greet the children
            Just like yesterday
    You told me all at home were doing fine
    Everything always seemed fine on your end
    Even on your sick bed, all was fine.
    We could hear it from your voice, you were not your usual self,
    But you assured us all was well. 
   You never let any of your children see a tear roll down you eye. 
   You never let us know you were in so much pain,
   You did not give us the opportunity to share in your pain,
   Because you loved us so much, unbearable pain
   Only God could provide relief.
   We may be sad, yet  happy that you are resting from all your troubles.
   Your memories will remain with us forever.
   You shall be remembered for all you have done.
   We mourn; your wives, your children, brothers and sisters, your friends
   Your students, church members, meeting groups
   Your enemies? No, you never had any!  
    Rest Papa, Rest in Perfect Peace. To God be the Glory.

"when shall you return Bobe Takang"

Shared by Ernest Timnge on June 15, 2011

“When Shall You Return Bobe Takang”


 When you traveled and went to the land of science,

We were only waiting with our ears and eyes Opened

 To see you come back home in health and energetic.

 Yes, there in those your days when your heart was

 Filled with pain and sorrow and you moved from

 Place to place like an orphan child without hope.


Your days were turned into nights, and your nights

 Became your days as you watched the sad days and

 Nights go by without the solution you wanted.

The nights became long as fear and sorrow became your friends.

The nights equally wickedly watched you as you lay in your pains.


You became the uninvited guest at the homes of physicians,

As you constantly stumbled at their door-steps,

Seeking for help that never was coming.



Still in patience and in your pains, you went

 Down on your knees in sincere prayers, hoping

 That your prayers were going to be answered.


On your sick bed you lay there in hope,

 As prayers were offered in your name.

Your pains and sufferings became our worries

 As we went through sleepless nights watching

You as you screamed on your bed yearning for help that would hardly come.
