Irene Ododo Lawal - Osula.
 A most compassionate person, kind loving , humble and God fearing. I never could comprehend how she remembers everyone of us and treated us in special ways.
 Osagie House as the home of the Lawal Osula's is known was a welcome haven. She just loved having people around.
 I especially loved her soft spoken kind words. An epitome of knowledge which she shared willingly. A great custodian of  culture. Loves children.
  Above all she loves God and lives according to His teachings.
Mummy Ododo , it was always such a joy to be around you. I know your passing is heavens gain. You will be fondly remembered. May God bless your posterity in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

My precious Irene Ododo Odaro (nee Lawal Osula) and I were classmates at St. James Anglican Primary School in Benin City from 1955-1960. In our tender years in school, I made sure I acted as a senior sister ensuring that she was not bullied. We had some big boys in class who engaged in bullying and beating up pupils especially girls. For Ododo I was her ‘able body sister and friend. At break time we shared snacks. After 1960, we proceeded to various schools. She was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1978. I followed through in her steps after my 6th baby and went back to school and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1989. This love continued with us as mothers and our children as well. Irene’s desire for knowledge and philanthropy was inexhaustible. She gave me some of the books she published and encouraged me to do same. She was full of love and compassion which I believe she passed on to her children. In July 2013, she heard that I had brain surgery and came from DC to see me in Silver Spring. That was true love. Esohe her great daughter worked tirelessly with my children to get things done for my surgery. Irene Ododo was a true daughter of her parents and a child of GOD. My dear Irene Ododo, a great achiever in all respect will be missed by all. I will miss your forever gentle pretty face and calm way of life. I give GOD thanks for the life you lived and I know you are at peace with your Creator.

Aunty Ododo. My friend and mentor; fondly remembered. I learnt so much from you over the years, about spirituality and my background and heritage as an Edo woman. I was heartbroken to hear that you've left us. May your sweet smile, calmness and positivity never fade. I'm so proud and grateful to God to have known you. Thank you - till we meet again, when the Lord calls us. Love is forever xXx
