"PA PATRICK KIMBO
One day, like two day’s gone
One year, like two year’s gone
But the flame of love you lit in our hearts blazes on
Not a single day passes by without us
Remembering you and the values you incarnate
Was and remains the recipe for a fulfilling life
P – Peaceful
R – Rational
I – Illuminating
C – Calm
K – Keen
Kingly Impetus Mobilizing Buoyancy Overwhelmingly"
"Dad, You were the best and always will be our inspiration and strength. I can't fathom the thought that you and Mom are gone. Every day when I walk in and out of our house, your spirits are so present in your pictures that it continuously feel like you just went out and will be back home. Your spirit will guide us for eternity. God bless you and we truly will miss you
"Another year has gone by since you left us to be with your creator. We can still feel your presence. When the going gets tough, we can hear you asking us to trust in God. When good things happen, we can hear your beautiful laughter. We take comfort in knowing that your spirit lives on. Continue to rest in peace Papa.
Yesterday, today and forever
You remain fresh in our hearts.
Compelling memories of your values and deeds

The goodness of your heart will forever remain our guiding spirit.

"Dad, Dear Dad. It has been one year yet it seems like yesterday. The seeds you planted have germinated and grown and continue to thrive. I miss you so much. I continue to pray for you adn i know with the Good Lord on your side, He helps you shower His Blessings on us.
"Dear Dad, I can not believe it has been one year today, that the Lord called you to his heavenly kingdom. I spoke with Hadjia Beri today and she told us (Flo, Priscie and myself) about the memorial mass in Jakiri today and how wonderful your family, friends, quarter folks, choir, Samba, Bible group, well wishers celebrated your anniversary at church and at your residence. We watched your departure video all evening and those memories are still vivid and reminiscent of what a great man you were. If only you could see (which I know you can) these videos.....
I will never forget what Priscilla's dad, Pa Henry Ngong told her after the burial.. " Your father-in-law's death celebration makes us wish to die" (reflecting obviously on your humility, the enormity of the event and the outpour of compassion and admiration for your person and accomplishments). He further stated that "after witnessing such an event, that if a man like you does not go straight to heaven, then he does not know who else would". This is the best summary of your last impressions on earth. You are a great dad forever! We love you.
We are all healthy and happy. May God bless you and Mom. We shall strive to continue your legacy, God-willing, till we meet again.
This indelible day April 2nd, 2014."
"It is exactly one year today since our dear father Papa Patrick Kimbo went to be with the Lord. As we remember him, I like to thank each and every one who took the time to pay him tribute, light a candle or write a story about him on this memorial site. I thank you for your continuous prayers for his family and loved ones, and for the repose of his soul. Papa you will always live in our hearts. May your soul continue to rest in perfect peace till we meet again.

"I only learnt of this website this March 6 2014. I am working on a book about Jakiri and Nkar and Pa Kimbo is one of my key witnesses. I intrviewed him in July 2012 sitting in front of his home in Jakiri that I know only too well. I owe him a lot and I would have loved that his account and pictures were published for him to see. God decided otherwise. May his soul rest in peace.

"Dr.s Edwin and Flo and the rest of the family in Kumbo and Nkar and elsewhere, I and my family are terribly touched by this loss.
