As for us, our life is like grass.
We grow and flourish like wild flower;
Then the wind blows on it, and it is gone. Burial scheduled August 07, 2010
No one sees it again.
But for those who honor the Lord,
His love last forever,
And His goodness

You planted the seed,
It was just a very tiny seed,
From blessed hands and with a loving heart.
The seed was sown on good soil.
Seven years have passed and the seed has gained roots.
It is growing and spreading.
Turn and look: it has got many branches,
Birds are nesting in its branches and eating its fruit.
Be happy where you are! You did not labor in vain.

Uncle Pastor, your spirit will continue to live on in our hearts. It's seven years today since you were separated from us. Our actions are guided by the sermons you taught us. I light a candle for you today Uncle. Love always!

I write with a very heavy heart today because I miss your soft and gentle voice. Rest in Peace, Uncle Pastor.
Posted by Abang Simeon on July 11, 2016
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.

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
Posted by Lemme Tangyie on July 11, 2015
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.

Uncle Pastor. 
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.
Posted by Abang Simeon on April 22, 2014
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.

Time has past , our memories remember as if the 7th of August 2010 in Weh was yesterday.

Dear Uncle Pastor,
If I could speak with you one last time, I'd say Thank You for the difference you made in my life. The weekends I spent with you and Auntie Anne at Djongolo helped build my character and without question made me a better man. Eventhough you are not here, I know you are watching over me and I'll always strive to make you proud.

Your memory will never cease to remind us of the virtues you stood for. You made in this sinful world a special spiritual life for many. In your name, many families are together and will always be together. We will always remember and missed you till we meet to part no more in the glory of God. LYNNE AND DENIS

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.
Posted by Lemme Tangyie on July 11, 2012
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.

Sometimes I still hear your gentle but firm voice speaking in several situations. Sometimes you seem so very much around, eventhough my eyes can't see you. Thanks for being the father and Shepherd that you've always been.
I miss and will forever remember you for the values you sowed in me. Rest in the Lord's Peace.

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.

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.
Posted by Stella Tembunde on August 31, 2010
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.
Posted by ABRAHAM AKIH on August 30, 2010
    You ran a good race, fought a good fight and kept the faith. You are now being rewarded for being a good soldier of the Lord. We will in our own little way keep the flame of God's Word and Spirit burning as we remember you our mentor in the ministry.
Rest in Peace!!! Yes Rest with the Lord in the heavenly city where all pain and suffering is gone.
Posted by Rose Mefor on August 30, 2010
Daddy Pastor, you signalled us well before hand but we couldnt understand. All thesame you had to go bcos the lord needed you. We miss you, but we will follow your steps so that we can catch-up with you on the last day.

Those we love don't go away,
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...

That voice!!! I can hear it now and have been hearing it on most Sundays and Communion services in over 30 years. I always did tell Sarah, he made such a huge impact in my life. I love spending Sunday afternoons with him and oh...those lunches were so delightful. Thanx for being in my life, Uncle and may your soul rest in perfect peace. You will be dearly missed by all. Take heart, Bame family!

And so the Rabbi, was laid to rest. And when the gong rang - none of us was ready for it. The many different incomplete assignments he left will be filled at a pace only ordained by Christ alone. for that, God will bless us all to take it a day at a time.
