Watching Blondo's pictures parade this screen and reading the tributes provoke tears of pains from my eyes. Menge was my Master of Ceremony for all occasions I hosted in Cameroon. He spoke eloquently and his company was always a treasure. I also remember vividly how he supported my wife and daughter in Yaounde during my brief period of studies in Holland. My wife, kids and I, will particularly miss him so much. "On your birthday today, may you stay well with our dear Dad (Papa Tabe) and brother (Emmanu). We constantly remember you all very positively out here".

OMG! " I knew this big bro(Blondo) in the early 1980s in Mamfe (Banya quarters) . What comes to mind when ever hear the name "Blondo" is the several cars from Germany he was driving in Mamfe. RIP Blondo

You were not just a friend but a brother to the Arrey's family. The good stories you told us at Georges place will be greatly missed. The good news is that you completed the cycle of life. Join my late brother Cyril Ebot and have a good family over there. Adieu Pa Blondo

Blondo, as you were funnily known, was a genuine friend to anyone. His thoughts were always thoughts of progress, good never evil. The world needed people like you Blondo!!! May your soul rest in peace!

Uncle Menge, I still haven't come to terms with the fact that I will never have a conversation with you again. It was always a pleasure to see you as were so welcoming. I am glad to have had the opportunity of knowing you. We will miss you so, so much.

"Blondo" Fare ye well... Move on and proceed with confidence, for "God will cover you with his pinions, you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you..." Psalms 91 Angel and family, let us be comforted by the fact that " Our loved ones never really die, cause their memories live in our hearts forever "

Bro Menge's death has left a gaping vacuum that will never get filled and through this, we reflect on what life truly is about. In this moment of such a tragic loss, My thoughts and prayers are with the TABE Family. Saying goodbye will be hard. May God Jehovah grant you all the strength to cope with this loss and may you draw strength from the resurrection hope; John 5:28,29.

Uncle Menge, I only met you once in 2003, but I've heard so much about you - and you sound like a wonderful uncle to me. When Daddy told me last Tuesday what had happened, I was shocked and deeply saddened. Although you have passed away, you'll be here to stay - FOREVER - in my heart. Lots of love, Little Mayong, England

I knew for sure you were going to come and see your mum.Rather you will be buried in september,well,I do not believe in tributes bcos the dead can not read but i have no choice now.With so much to say, I'll be back big bros

Uncle Menge! I still cannot come to terms with the fact that you are no more. Only GOD alone knows why he decided to take such a great uncle from us at this time.You were a very caring uncle to me growing up. I am glad GOD gave me a chance to hug you this past Dec. during my visit with my husband and son.You're in a better place! Pls greet Emmanu and Papa my "Big, Big Moyo". LOVE Ekieta

Brother Menge (grand Blondo as I fondly call you), your untimely death has left a vacuum in my mind as I can still remember your great sense of humor. I miss you.
Posted by Fausta Tabe on 18th August 2013
Oh, Uncle Menge! I can hardly count the # of years that have gone by since the last time I saw you in Yaounde (shortly before moving to the USA). If anyone had said that would be our last encounter in flesh, I would have been in absolute denial. You probably would have told that person off yourself. I'll miss your candid & yet amusing character. Adieu, dear Uncle...until we meet again! :'(

Every single day seems tragic as death lurks and steals our loved ones. Like Shakespeare put it "death is like a stage on which we all are actors".True we cannot take back what has happened and it is my prayer that the Almighty God Jehovah grant You all, the TABE family the strength to cope with this great loss.Remember the words of 1 Thessalonians 4:13 and be courageous. - J. Tambe Ebone

Blondo! Your tragic and untimely departure fills our hearts with untold pain and sorrow. You are a special son, brother and uncle to us. Your infectious joie de vivre always made your company one to treasure. We will miss your eloquence and caustic sense of humour. We will miss you dearly.
