Bazil, Jacky and family may you find the courage to accept this loss."there are things we dont want to happen but have to accept,things we dont want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go" said an unknown author.And to you CY may you find peace in the bossom of the Lord.

Na we brother eh eh, na we dady eheeh na we uncle eheh na we pikin eheh we brother don go leave for who eh eh.Cy who taught you to sleep this long for one month, is it a joke , if so then stop it and get up. Cy why this terrible disgrace to the family? Or is it really that, as Anthonio in the merchant of vince said "that the world is a stage where every one most play a part and mine being a sad one" Was yours that sad thaat you decided to go without any notice, well now it is between you an your God, or what actually happened that you left us so suddenly. Infact itis a serious blow, please tell God when you meet him that we are sinners but we cannot stand one one hundreth of the blows any longer like Job did. So let him give us the wisdom to discern the form of repentance he desires of us. We cannot question God's ways for He giveth and taketh, all we can say is Adieu bro.prepare a place for us, where you are going for we are sure that place is that beautiful otherwise you would not have left us in this manner, at the summer of your life. We will pray for you as you go ahead for that is the best we can do.

While, I did not personally know Cyrien, I knew enough to know what a wonderful person he was through his loving brother, Basil. For the family, do not worry, no one has the answer as to why he had to leave us so early, only god has the answer. He always pick the beautiful roses first.The lord have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing. Jer. 31:25. He heals the brokenhearted and bandage their wound. May the lord show the family his will, and which path to take and heal your wounds. God bless you all and our family will keep you in prayer. Bazil, may your brother rest in peace, do not worry he will always be with you!

May your soul rest in peace CY. It is very unfortunate that we have never met although we were all lived in the same city until now that death is the caused of our separation.My family especially my mother and wife who always see you in Church because of my schedule will always pray for your soul. We all love you but God loves you more.Bye-bye CY.Elie

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
We love you but God loves you most. May your soul rest in perfect peace.

I am virtually short of words but I sure do know that God's Plan is the Best.Since Your departure,We have judged,grieved and cursed the heavens for their decision, taking you home at such a time when the world and your loved one's needed you most; With no fore warning or room to say Goodbye.
The truth is, despite you short life on earth you inspired more than most of us will do in our life time.You were an icon,an Idol and a mentor.With you gentle ways and amazing smile you inspired us. You gave us a reason to live,love and hope. As you go ahead of us,All we can do is pray you intercede and watch over us.We shall always have you at heart and listen profoundly for you every direction.
FareWell Grand, Till We Next Meet, Do Well To Dust and Reserve Seat. You Shall Never Be Forgetten!!

Cy, it was with deep shock I learnt of your sudden departure from this sinful world. The first think that came to my mind was our bosom friend and brother with whom you arrive BIROCOL together in 1983 (Atamja Valentine), who had since gone beyond. Our dear brother, even though I might term this "SUNSET AT NOON", as a believer, I beleive the Good Lord we all serve knows better. All we can do now is to pray for you. CY, ALL ZEMSTOVS AND THE WHOLE BIROCOL ARE GOING TO MISS YOU GREATLY.

Sliding tackle man,
We met in Birocol, you loved having a muffler tied round your neck. Twas always for the cold to leave you alone. Why didn't you hint me the evening we spoke and then you departed the next day, that you would have fancied one such thick woolen types brother, knowing I was just coming in from the Queen's cold land? All the same, you now need no muffler, Fr Henry Musue, would sure know how to sort you out.
Remember, you and me were his 'boys' and he would stop at nothing to order for the killing of a 'dabo' as we climbed the stip courtyard leading to the Presbytery in Fuli. You can remember, can't you?
Sorry Boy, It just struck me I am communicating with your Spirit instead. I would love you to know, we met, we walked the walks together Birocol, Bambui, Njindom Cathedral, Fuli, wherever. We sang the songs together, you stroke the right notes in Bass, I did the Tenor. Do remember to take up same role in the Celestial Choir. You got singers there Boyyyyy: they will refine your voice : Timo, Don Muks, BoBo, Abaculum.
I wonder who is there now to 'sliding tackle' me. Boyyyy you could do it so well. Take my praises now and ever as I always did before now.
Boy,rest assured ' Our hope will not deceive us.' Our God is full of mercy and compassion, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will remember all we did together to spread his name among men in our own little way. He will not loose sight of this: Never Never. He will trumpet your name and bring you to his side.
Brother, Friend, Classmate, Cy, Boy, Sliding tackle,the names were many we called ourselves.
Fare thee well friendiest friend. You will always be in my mind. I thank God for the opportunity to chat with you before you set off. Remember to great 'Strong man for all thing except health' Bro Asaba for me.
I am short for words.
Requiescant in Pace Frater

I can only imagine what you must be going through as you grieve your loved one. Trust in the Lord still and lean not on your own understanding and he will see you through. Even as you go through the valley of the lowest moments in your life, remember that the Lord is your strength. He says He will never forsake or leave His children.
I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Rest in peace, Cyprien.

MY Dear CY I am in shock, I can hardly think of what to say here because it is hard to believe you are no More. I have so many things to say but i am unable.All what i know today is that i have learnt a good life's lesson from your passing. "Never take friendships for granted."CY i thought you would ever be there, not knowing God had his own better plan. The news of your sudden passing should serve as a warning for us alive. Be prepared at all times for no one knows the moment. CY I will miss you greatly. To Corlence, Jacky, Tayong and the others we feel your pains at this very trying moment. As we all mourn CY, we should try to remember the Wisdom of old which says we should give praises to Yahweh for all that comes our way as all things work for Good for those who love him. CY may your peaceful soul rest in Peace.

"Lord, for your faithful people, life is changed not ended. When the body of our earthly dwelling lies in death, we gain an everlasting dwelling place in heaven".
Cy, it is with these words of the Church, that I thought of you when I got that email announcing your death. It was a very bitter pill to swallow, yet we had to accept the fact that it was true. Ni Ephraim was announcing something from the palace and it could not be a joke.
From the annoncement it was clear that you were up and doing before it happened. So what went wrong? A few days before that annoncement, there was this mail from Injoh that I was still trying to decode. Did she know that you were going to behave the way you did? Was there any link between what she was saying in that mail and what has befallen us. But then, ours is a devout Catholic family and our faith tells us that God is the giver of life and only him can take it. Your time was up and you had to leave. The way you did it does not really matter. I was reminded of the fact that we should always be ready for we do not know the day or the hour, for at times death comes like a thief in the night.
I was lost in words, when my thoughts went to Biggie, Pa, Mami and Corlence, not to talk of Jacky, Injoh and Amuzang. I could understand the devastating effect of your demise on the them. I prayed for Tayong and Tita because they had to be brave and take control of things. I know you are also praying for them because you are certainly with the Father in heaven.
Death is our lot, but it is cruel when it comes to a man, just 41 years of age, leaving behind a grand mum,dad, mum, wife, kids, brothers and sisters to mourn him. It is like you knew all along that you were to leave them too soon, that is why you tried to building that bond of unity, love and peace in the family. I am sure that the seed you planted and watered all this years will bear fruits in their millions. On your behalf, I am begging my brothers and sisters, to understand that, a gap has been created between us. What we need to do is to close up and not let the world feel that there is a vaccum. May that spirit of togetherness that has always been there be fostered.
Cy, may your gentle soul rest in peace.

Uncle Cy, I will leave to remember your smiles and gentle way of talking, I promise you, we will do our best to see that your children grow up the way you would have loved them to. All I ask of you is to intercede for us because; I know you are right there at God’s side. Greet Forsah and Mami of Nyen for me. Words cannot describe how I feel; no tears bring you back. Thank you very much for all your efforts. May the name of the Lord be praised now and for evermore? I love you and will always do.

Uncle Cy,
News of your death pierced through my heart like a sword. You have left an indelible mark in my heart. What have you done? You should have told me that you were going for good when you left the kids here with us. Terrible thing Cy. You should have told Tita you were leaving when you met him at home. What will I tell Ciara and Carrie? Is this your December coming?
You taught us to be loving, caring, understanding and to live as one whole family. You taught us to always wave trials and temptations away and get closer to God for everything we wanted. You were a brother and father to all of us. You taught us to be strong and healthy always. It is so sad uncle Cy, that you left without a word. What about all the plans we had? What have you told Mum and Dad and Biggie before leaving? Oh, what a cruel world? So heart broken I am. October!
Uncle Cy, I will leave to remember your smiles and gentle way of talking, I promise you, we will do our best to see that your children grow up the way you would have loved them to. All I ask of you is to intercede for us because; I know you are right there at God’s side. Greet Forsah and Mami of Nyen for me. Words cannot describe how I feel; no tears bring you back. Thank you very much for all your efforts. May the name of the Lord be praised now and for evermore? I love you and will always do.

Injoh (kid sister)

You left me with grandma and Grandpa and they have taken good care of me. They taught me to sing, dance and speak the dialect. I am waiting for you to come so that I can show you all my styles. Daddy I love you so much. Please, come quickly. Don’t forget bringing all my stuffs. Anxious to see your smile again.

Carrie Your beautiful one

Dead! Dead Why are you so smart in this world? Why can’t you tell us the time, day when you have to be coming: Uncle CY when I received a call from Injoh telling me that my choir master has passed away I thought it was a joke but why uncle C’Y, this is your choir mistress, I have many songs in my file which I had already prepare to sing for you as you said you will be coming to Cameroon in December. Is this the way you are going to come and listen to the songs . uncle CY who is really man to question God, man proposes and God disposes I have nothing much than to say uncle C’Y prepare a place for us, greet every body and in our hearts you shall always remain forever. Adieu! Adieu! Uncle C’Y till we meet again.

Akeh Victorine ( Your choir mistress)

Mr. Aza, several times I have picked up my pen to write tributes to you, tears run down my eyes and I just let it go. Tributes for what Cy? How could you die CY?How could death be so wicked?
Uncle Cy, how could you do this to us? What actually happened? No news of any illness my dear brother. I knew I had an able elder brother to lean on. Where do I begin? You have left me in the middle of the sea, so confused.
Uncle Cy, I remember last December, we sat on my bed, you told me, Jacky I am leaving the children home because you are there. You reminded me you are ‘Ave’ the mother of this family. You told me you will be coming in December 2011 “Jacky wait I am coming”. Little did I know that you were going to come back as a special package. So what happened to the plans we had. Cy it is really painful. Our hearts and our faith are shaken.
Uncle Cy, you showed us how to love, how to forgive how to make peace with one another, and how to be healthy. You united the family and we have been leaving as one having concern for one another. What then have you done?This time you failed,you didn’t communicate. Why didn’t you think of Papa and mami, your beautiful girls,wife, your brothers and sisters? What more of biggie you promised to come and take to the hospital? Why didn’t you tell us you have limited time in this world.
Uncle Cy how could you allow the wicked hands of death to snatch you from us so soon. You have left a big vacuum in this family. You asked your brothers to leave Germany and join you in the U S A which they did. How are they going to survive without you?
However all the ‘whys’ will not bring you back to life. Our ways are not God’s ways. I promise to continue to take care of the kids and family the way you would have done. May you rest in peace and please intercede for us wherever you may be.I will miss you for the rest of my life.

Cyprian my brother,
May your soul rest in peace. I will not cry like a fool. We can’t change God’s plan. You being my first child I cared for, it’s very painful, since you left me for the U.S I have been hearing only your voice in the phone.
When ever I ask of you my small sister Jacky will say you will soon come to Cameroon and you may visit me in New Town Barombi. I wished and prayed that you visit me in my dream and tell me some thing. I was like blaming papa that he would have brought you back to Cameroon if he heard of your illness. He told me I should not cry much he called to say that you are no more. You are coming to me with a sealed mouth CY.What happened?
I think since I have two other brothers Basil and Tita, I will limit my cry. At one time mami tried to put your baby in my hands to comfort me but it will not just solve my problem because I understand that your child is your child and you are mind. Your promises to me will not be completely left because my two small brothers are there. God has given me my lovely brother but Mr. Death has taken him.
In everything we have to give thanks to God because your corpse will be seen. Others don’t even see theirs. Your journey to me has a bad image. I know you are with the Almighty God now. May your soul rest in peace. I will pray for you CY and Pray for me too.

I wish to join others in expressing my deep condolences to the Aza family and to Thank Basil Aza through whom I came to meet this great family and to know CY and Tita. CY remains to me a father-figure who played a pivotal role in this family and led by example. While we celebrate his brief life on earth, we measure the weight of responsibilities he's left behind for all of us to maintain his legacy. Let us pray and hope we will keep his flag flying.

CY fare thee well. We will not let you down.

It is a blow that at this stage, we start loosing enterprising people like CY. How will the developm ent of the village look like in the absence of such back bone.

Go ahead, we will soon be meeting you.

Been shocked by your departure. It is tough on us and much tougher on your wife and kids, but God knows why He calls you home.
Of all the Njindom boys of our generation, you by far, one of the most peaceful and kind. May your spirit inspire us to be better humans.

CY, it was on Wednesday Oct. 26th at 8pm that i got this huge blow. I went blank, silent and dumbfounded for a second before wailing. I have never in my life cried as i did on that day. All i could see was your face smiling and all i heard was you saying as you always did, "Nene no worry we go fix'am". Each day since then i walk around like a lost child. For all these years CY, more than 15yrs, you were not only my friend, you were my brother, the big brother i never had. You've been there for all my trials and tribulations and all the times i have been happy. Your relentless encouragement for me to live a happy and peaceful life are appreciated CY. Ma Bu and my whole family cried so hard when i told them of this. You've left a void in my heart that will never be filled. You were a kind, gentle, nurturing and loving peron. I hope your traits have rubbed off on me so that in everything i do i'll always think of you. I know you are at the Lord's side with the saints and angels. Look down on us and in your gentle way as usual guide us through the righteous path. I pray that you rest in perfect peace and may the good Lord shower your family and friends with peace to cope with your passing. I love you CY and rest in perfect peace.

It is real heart broken to hear of the departure of my brother and friend Aza Cy. His dead tells me, Zemstov and others too that ours may not be long from now yet we live as if dead is too far away from us. We came three (3) in BIROCOL in 1983, Atamja Valentine alias Avaf, Aza Cyprian alias Mr, Brownish and the one dead seems to fear, Atem Michael alias, Grant Tophem. Avaf went 1st along time ago and now is the turn of Mr. Brownish. When will my own day come? Only our dear Lord who has taken Aza to his eternal bosom knows.
We walked in the part of truth in BIROCOL and STAMS but fell on the way. I hope this was to prepare us to embrace God's kingdom at the end time. My friend and brother Cy lived a life worthy of praise and emulation but as a human being like anyone of us, he might have slipped on the part of righteousness in one way or the other. So in this moment of truth may the good Lord have mercy on him and show him a place not too far from His left hand. May our ancestors and the Angels sing hosanna,hosanna, hosanna to welcome him.
May Aza's wife, children, parents, brothers and sisters, my fellow Zemstov etc accept my sympathy. From God we come and to God we shall return. Though difficult to accept, death remains our friend and the necessary evil for us to meet God. I promise you Cy my feeble prayer as I cry "Out of the depth I cry to you O Lord, Lord hear my voice. O May your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleading. If you O Lord should mark our guilt, Lord who will survive but with you is found forgiveness..."

Death seized Cy at his prime of life,
Leaving his family and the Zemstov in deep shit,
we mourn in deep sorrow but forgetting the joy that comes from it.
Death the destroyer of love, death the destroyer of harmony, death the destroyer of families, death the destroyer of friendship,
But death, death, death t restores all things at the end.
Match on Atamja Vally, match on Fr. Mike Suh,..., match on our latest victim Aza Cy,
Zemstov pray for the fallen brethren Cy,
Pray for the wife,children, parents, brothers, sisters, the In laws etc,
Tell them, we are are together,
We are the new Cy in their lives,
And we shall stand with them always.
Good bye Cy, good bye fellow Zemstov and rest smiling in the bosom of God together with our ancestors.

It's been a wonderful journey. It is however not even funny to spend most of your life with someone and get up one day just to find out that you're all by yourself with three children, playing the role of a father and a mother.
You have touched my life in so many ways with your charm of love and kindness. It breaks my heart moving forward in life without you. We've seen it all together; but I believe that the Lord our Creator in Heaven has a reason for taking you away from me. I cannot judge him on that. I guess he did not want you to go through any kind of pain here on earth because you are so special, generous, kind, nurturing and do not deserve that. You have diligently delivered the message the God sent you to deliver on this earth - to be faithful, generous, kind, and loving to your wife and children and to family, friends and all. Your good heart impacted the world and it is thanks to the support of all those you directly and indirectly impacted that we are able to cope through these difficult days. Although the future all seems dark, I have realized that crying without listening to the inner voice in me will only mean crying and not paying attention to God's voice, promise and trust. As a Saint, intercede for me to have the strength, wisdom and courage to move forward with the children and to continue to spread your love and impact all in the same way you did and would have done.
I assure you that through the strength from God, I will realize all you ever planned to until the Lord finally calls me to join you in heaven where there is neither sorrow nor suffering.
I love you with all my heart and soul; I will miss you so desperately; our kids miss you. You will always have a special place in my heart until we meet again to part no more. You will be my rock forever.
May your soul rest in perfect peace.
Your beloved wife

CY, at 8pm the day I was informed of your resting by the Lord's side, I stood thunderstruck by the news and in denial, why so soon and why that where. Resting by the Lord's side, is the only one who could answer all our whys. For the time we knew each other well, you were not only a friend but a brother indeed. You shall be sincerely missed. Your thoughts and smile shall always be with us.

It’s a lugubrious and extremely sad moment when we learnt of the sudden passing onto glory of CY. The almighty Yahweh whose ways are unfathomable knows exactly why.We all have to lean on him at this moment of grief for courage and strength.
[Jn 14:1-4; “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God ;
trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”(NIV)]

We love you but God does better. Bye bye for now , until we meet to part no more one day in his heavenly throne.
Adieu CY.

Cy had such a kind, compassionate and gentle spirit. I wish I had known him better. My deepest condolences to his beautiful family. I would like to pass on a poem that has helped me in times of grief, may it bless you.

God moves in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. He plants his footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines of never failing skill,He treasures up His bright designs and works His sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, the clouds you so much dread, are big with mercy and will break in blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense but trust him for His grace, for behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast unfolding every hour, the bud may have a bitter taste but sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to ere and scan His work in vain, God is his own interpreter and He will make it plain. (William Cowper)

Alo CY,

What is this you have done to me? You were my father and brother and not a son.You had a lot of concern for me.You made sure you gave me all I needed. You gave me all the honour and respect a mother would expect from a child. You listened to me always and kept to all I told you. You kept God first in everything you did. You were a father to all your followers. You have given me a successor, Carrie Ijang. Thank you for everything. I loved you so much but God loves you more. May the Lord keep you by His side to be praying for us and your kids. O CY,O CY,O CY,O CY. Have a safe journey home to the Lord and always intercede for us especially your kids.
Your beloved Mum (Rose Fombo)

Dear Cyprain (Popularly known as CY)
Can our sadness turn into gladness!
You were living with us in Atwakom when you withdrew from the Seminary .We were very sad.Eventually this sadness turn into gladness when you had a Visa for the USA, the land of milk and honey on our sinful earth.Soon you married had three children.
We were happy and very happy with with you when you first got to the USA and this continued until recently.
The week ending October 30, 2011, brought the greatest sadness in our life.We heard you passed away, at only 41 years. This time, Ma Pauline and i hardly understand why at this prime age.
This means we will miss your smile and care. who will care for these 3 children in your absence??
I regarded you all of Pa Benard Aza Fombo as my juniors since i lived for some time with him when doing standard six in St Josphe;s catholic mission school, Mambo, Bafut. Our only prayer is that you enter into the Kingdom of God and send us the necessary consolation to withstand and bear your absence that we miss and your usual smile, even in times of difficulty.
May the Lord be with you

Bazil, I was deeply saddened by the death of CY. This must be very difficult for you. You are in my thoughts and my prayers.

To CY's wife: CY has passed on to a better place now. You can take comfort and strength from the wonderful family you and he had together.

May God bless you and your family during this time and always.

Wow CY, one thing I learned from you is your softness, your bountiful nature and wow what a fatherly father you were, a beauteous family man and above all a God fearing dude. A handsomely prince who stands out from a crowd of young resilient warriors. CY You are unique, in tears I say you left US with three beautiful angelic “Cs’’ Cyril, Carrie, and Ciarra with tons of questions to ask what happened to daddy??? Unfortunately we are not strong enough to give answers to those little innocent lovely sweet hearts. I promise you CY, we are aunties, uncles, friends and grannies, and with your lovely wife we will fill their little hearts with un ending love full of passion. I think the Almighty chose you with his amazing touch to be the leading champion of all youths in heaven. CY do me a favor will you? When you see my brother your friend Abam Ephraim tell him I miss him just like I’m dreamily missing you already. RIP.

Footprints in the Sand by Mary Stevenson

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied, "The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you."

What a day in the life of Aza's family especially to you, lovely Col. CY why would you leave us when we need you so much? Is that what life is all about? One is born, gets educated, settles down, and then goes back to his maker. Unbelievable! What short life, what a fine man, what a family man, what a brother, what a friend to all who knew you, and most of all, what friend in Jesus! CY you have gone to pave the way for us, while there, we will ensure that your memories remain with us forever till we meet to part no more. Wherever you are big bro, i know you are resting in the peace and serenity of our Lord. CY we will always miss the charming guy you always was. I am still to understand what happened and then come to terms with it. Love and miss you dearly. May the Aza's family accept my/our deepest condolence during these very tough times.

After much thought, if I were to ask you Why? This poem would summarize your answer.
It's hard to believe that you are no more. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.Adieu CY.

Death Is Nothing At All

"All is well
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Please, call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the same easy way you always did.
Laugh, as we always laughed, at the little jokes we shared together.
Think of me and smile.
Let my name be the household name it always was,
Spoken without the shadow of a ghost in it.
Life means all it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, - for an interval very near.
Nothing is past or lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
Only better and happier.
Together forever.
All is well."
