"Mike, Six years since? I cannot believe. Sleep in the Lord and in Peace Amen."
"A special smile
A special face
In our hearts
A special place
A special voice
A special way
In our lives
A special touch
Memories are a gift to treasure
Ours of you will last forever.
Dearest Uncle Pastor
Six years today seems like yesterday. Feels like you're only a phone call away. I know you're watching over us and asking God to touch us
in our own special way. You're loved and missed very much. Till we meet again, Uncle, I lay a flower for you"
"Daddy, six years have passed, yet it seems as if it was yesterday that you left us.Now I know you have gone to the "Land of no turning back" You cannot come back and I know why; where you are, everyone loves you unlike here. The good seed you planted in good faith is doing good. No amount of heat can cause it to wither. It is growing. You are nearer to the Lord, intercede for us."
"I write with a very heavy heart today because I miss your soft and gentle voice. Rest in Peace, Uncle Pastor."
"You are in our hearts forever."
"God will link the broken chain,
As one by one we meet again.
In our hearts you will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.
Tenderly we treasure the past,
With memories that will always last.
Time may pass and fade away,
But memories of you will always stay.
5 years today have gone by since you passed away.
The way I miss you is different now. I still hear your calm but reassuring voice ushering me through life's ups and downs and
I know that you're around. Until God links the broken chain,
In memory's garden we meet everyday."
"Father, the flame you lit in our hearts stays alight and we trust God on a daily basis to help us keep it burning to His glory."
"Uncle Pastor: Four Years have gone by since we were physically separated from you but we would never be separated spiritually. You live in me through all the memories I have of you. I am comforted and I know you are as well. Continue to smile down on me and intercede on my behalf. Thank you spiritual father."
"Yes Uncle every Easter I found myself lost because I can't have the Easter feeling and joy you bring to us while celebrating Easter and I will see myself in patmos matching with our palms. missed you so much."
"Daddy, you left so soon when there was still so much for me to learn. I wish you could tell me now if I am continuing with the work well. I have so many questions which only you could answer but you are not there. Daddy, I am missing you."
"Pastor Bame Bame, on this 66th year of the anniversary of your birth, I remember your birth day, not your death and celebrate your life's works and achievements and contribution to humanity. Cherished, loved and missed for ever... RIP"
"Time has past , our memories remember as if the 7th of August 2010 in Weh was yesterday. How long will it take weh, menchum, the North West and Cameroon to have such a venerated theologian, academician. Those who fought the values you stood for a struggling to adapt to such values. Daddy we miss you. LYNNE AND DENIS"
May what you left behind continue to grow abundantly."

If I could speak with you one last time, I'd say Thank You for the difference you made in my life.

Eventhough you are not here, I know you are watching over me and I'll always strive to make you proud."

We pray the legacy you left behind continues to inspire hearts and lives to serve the heavenly Lord in truth and in spirit. Blessings as you live in the abode of the Almighty God. Shalom!!!"
"Your presence is still vivid in my heart. Your voice, your words, your guardianship, I feel daily. I still hear your sermon closings, "World without end, Amen". As a kid it was so reassuring hearing that. I would say," if Uncle Pastor says that then it's true, the world will never end". It's not the world that ends, but our physical presence on this earth. I'm comforted by you."
"Dady Bame you were a wonder inspiration to me, I will keep the faith and continue to trust God. I know you no doubt in the precious bossom fo the Most High God. The FC is dwindling but we are pulling along."

"Just this afternoon I recalled and recounted an advice you gave me some 26 years ago. I searched for you on the Web only to be hit by the news of your depart to eternal rest. Doc., you will forever be missed. My daughter, named after lovely your wife - Aunty Anne, is a constant reminder of your goodness, kindness and love for my family. You are gone but your good works linger on. We love you."
"Uncle Pastor, I miss you!!! I recall those days at home at the Faculty of Theology when I kept you on your toes by doing everything you cautioned me from doing. I think of the day I ate the guava off the tree but did not pluck it and when you found it, I lied telling you a bird ate it. Oh there are many such tales I would be telling Ferrin about you when she grows up. Your spirit be at Peace."
"Two of your legacies were LOVE and FAITHFULNESS. I will never forget your soft, caring, and encouraging voice as you admonished me to remain prayerful and trust God to fight my battles. I know for sure your heavenly crown is enormous! Uncle Pastor, you will be greatly missed."

They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
We hope to emulate your lifestyle.
Rest in Peace Professor..."

Rest in Peace!!! Yes Rest with the Lord in the heavenly city where all pain and suffering is gone."
