Dr. Samuel Odey, even though I may not know you very well cause you and I way back in Unilag were quiet, calm, and easy-going people but you were the more gentle and calm person I have ever met.
I pray for your family the strength to endure your sudden departure from this world, though you're in a better place, your loved ones surely are going to miss you.
Sleep well my friend, my brother.

Dr. Sam I have tried several times to believe that this your death is a joke but everyday I await someone coming to tell me it is only a joke. You have been my close friend and brother since we met in Unilag. Our relationship goes beyond coursemate to padi padi. It is difficult for me to say goodbye, God knows the best. I am certain that you will have peaceful rest over there because you always want peace at all level with all men. It was really a brief stay you had with us. We will always miss you my padi. Rest in perfect peace. Sammy goodbye brother. Go well my man.

Love leaves a memory no-one can steal, but death leaves a heartache no-one can heal. Gone is the face I love so dearly, how can I express the pain in my heart, is this what it feels like to lose a best friend!!! Your memory will never grow old

Dr. Sam, your death was a rude shock to us. Back in unilag, you were such a good person and very accommodating. May God comfort your beautiful family and grant your soul eternal rest. Amen.

Dear Dr Sam,
Wouldn't say we were close but I can't deny you were my coursemate and wouldn't have walked past you after school like I didn't know you, no way! You were very consistent back then in school. You would always attend lectures consistently and always had this aura of seriousness, focus and maturity. I'm not surprised you got your PHD. It seemed like yesterday we were celebrating you on our Alumni group chat! Sigh! You would always respond to my greetings with such politeness and calmness those days. Death where is thy sting?! Can't believe we would now be talking about you in past tense. You will truly be missed. I pray God comforts your entire family and close friends. It's truly a painful exit. But God loves you more and knows why it happened this way. Rest On Dr Sam. Sleep well.

Samuel as i usually call you back then, why did you have to go too soon? You had a bright future ahead but death took you away from us, away from your loved ones, away from your wife and kids, but who are we to question the Lord. Unquestionable you're Lord. Hmmmmmm! I don't know what to write , tears keeps rolling down my eyes each time I remember you are no more. Your good deeds will forever be in my heart. Sleep well my dear friend,sleep well. it is difficult to write this but reality has set in .RIP my Samuel odey

Dr sam, what can i say rather than to say your death is too sudden. We can not question our maker. My prayer is that God will give your family you left behind the courage to bear the lost. Adiue Sam!

Dear Dr Sam, news of your sudden departure came as a rude shock and has left a void. We all knew to be kind, calm and very intelligent. The Lord bless your soul! We pray the Almighty grants your family fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss in Jesus' Mighty Name, Amen.

Adieu my very good friend

If one had to look for the meaning of a GOOD man, Sam fits the description. "Sam Sam" , that's how I called you in school. You were a good friend to me and everyone you came in contact with. Your gentleness, kindness, simpleness and openness was everything. You were a true brother and friend, I feel so hurt that I have to type this. We never got the chance to meet again after school. But even in my career, I have always met a Samuel and I called each of them Sam Sam. Telling them all about you. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace Amen. You didn't sound right that Friday as we hung up, I wish I asked why...but God was calling you. May the perpetual light of God shine upon you Sam. Please rest in peace ️ and may God comfort your family.
