TRIBUTE TO A GREAT LEGEND
Sir professor Lovett Lawson, it is sad, very sad that you have gone to the great beyond when you were most needed. We are not unmindful of the fact that all mortals must do this, but are saddened that an icon has departed.
You were indeed an icon, a renowned professor of medicine, a detribalised fellow, humanity personified, a lover of God and humanity. The church, the individuals you touched positively will greatly miss you. Our prayers are that God Almighty will comfort and console your immediate family, the larger society and that your gentle soul rest on his bosom. Amen.
Guilders Udeme and Helen Essien.

Lovett Lawson!!!
Definitely not at this time. Your departure was very sudden. You are too precious to leave us so soon. But we are sure you are in a better place.
You left a vacuum for Billy, Nadu and Theo to fill but you can be rest assured they will easily fill.
Your life was short while your achievements in life were perfectly well executed.
We shall forever miss and remember you.
You demonstrated Igbobi College values to the fullest and we are very very proud of you.
Rest in peace Noble Nigerian.
My dear Senior, "Adieu"
Rest in peace till we meet to part no more.

We thought we love you and would never let anything take you away from us but God, our Creator loves you most, has great plans for you and called you home to be closest to Him. Our loss of you on planet Earth is Heaven’s gain. We all are in shock and distress but as Christians we have hope that you now have eternal rest with God. Your good works to humanity will speak volumes for you before our Almighty God. We can not query our Creator for He gave us life and takes it when he pleases. Prof. Worthy KJW, Great physician, kind and nice Husband of my Fellow Golden Mother, Lady Dr. Funke Lawson, We will miss your sorely. R.I.P.

When I read about the event that drew you to study Medicine, I marveled. It was nothing close to riches or fame. It was a genuine passion to save lives and serve humanity. That you have pursued all the days of your life. We are witnesses. Your type is so rare.
My closer contact with you revealed how much you loved God and His word. You were committed and always at the forefront to ensure that the work of God moved on.
You were always blunt to condemn evil no matter from whom it comes. You were an epitome of humility and love.
Since it has pleased God to call you home in times like this, I believe you have fulfilled the purpose He designed for you.
Rest on ,dear Prof in the bosom of God until we meet to part no more.

CONDOLENCE LETTER
On behalf of the Medical Women's Association of Nigeria I wish to commiserate with you on the passing away of your husband, Prof. Lovett Latevi Lawson.
His death came as a shock to all of us. He was by no means a man of great impact in the
field of Medicine especially in the area of Tuberculosis through Stop TB Partnership Nigeria.
We deeply appreciate his efforts at improving the health indices of Nigerians even at his own expense.
You have served and are still serving MWAN selflessly in many areas as Secretary to the Technical, Advocacy and Legislative Working Group as well as the Near East and Africa Conference Program Committee. We are sure it has been with your husband's support which we appreciate.
MWAN cannot forget the dinner held in our honor at your home in Abuja during the 2017 Abuja Biennial Conference. It was a fun filled evening of unity with our differences,
campaigning and dancing.
We celebrate his life well spent and believe his impact will live on.
We also pray God's presence abides with you, the children, grandchildren, relatives and friends as you go through this trying time.

Dr Bobola Agbonle
National Coordinator

TRIBUTE TO PROF. LOVETT LAWSON
Every once in a while one is privileged to encounter a person who live a meteor flashes across one’s path leaving a warm glow of friendship and love. This is how I see and choose to remember Prof. Lovett Lawson. He was not just human, but also very humane; ever smiling, very unassuming and extremely courteous.
On a visit to Lagos last year, l took ill in my hotel room. The only person l could think of calling was Prof. Lawson. Although he was far away in lkeja somewhere, in less than an hour he had Dr. Denloye come and attend to me in the hotel. That was classic Prof. Lawson, ever ready to help..
Someone admonished that we should love and cherish friends and family. These and not material things constitute true wealth and offer genuine happiness. In Efik we say “ owo edi inyene” meaning one’s wealth lies in the people one has.
Prof. Lawson was obviously imbued with this profound wisdom. He invested in friendships and relationships. So as we bid him farewell, he remains alive in our hearts and his good deeds and God’s abundant grace light up his path to the land of the blessed in eternity.
May His Soul Rest In Peace. AMEN

What a shock to us hearing of your exit from this world! Your's was an epistle worth reading, your exemplary life is worth exhibiting and your dedication to the service of God and humanity is commendable.
You have been a peace loving, god-fearing generous and dedicated to your family as well as the church, hence connecting to the school and the circuit thru the hospital.
If it is by power we would have stopped you from dying, but Ecclesiastes 8:7-8, said' no one has power over me the day of his death'. Isaiah 57:1-2,' devout men are taking away....,. to be spared from evil'.
No matter how we weep , it cannot bring you back to life. This is because the inexcusable grim reaper is the destiny of all men, the living should take this to heart. Ecclesiastes 7:2.
To say we will miss you is not enough to express our hearts, but our solace is in the fact that you have only gone out of this wicked and troubled world to join the church triumphant where we shall all eventually meet to part no more.
Rest in Christ, Sir

J'ai rencontré physiquement mon cousin Lovett Lawson pour la première fois en 1981 à Aného(Togo),lors des obsèques de notre grand-mère paternelle commune.
Ce qui m'a frappé à cette occasion c'est qu'il était un très bon danseur et s'adaptait aisément à l'ambiance générale qui règnait autour lui.
Une dizaine d'années plus tard,en 1991, de passage à Lagos chez notre cousin commun Lloyd,j'ai sollicité de Lovett l'autorisation de lui rendre visite à Jos( ville dans le centre du Nigéria)pour mieux le connaître avec sa petite famille.Il accepta avec plaisir sans hésiter.
Ce qui m'a particulièrement touché lors de mon bref séjour chez eux à Jos,est que bien que leur Clinique traversât une zone de turbulences et que lui-même semblait très débordé, non seulement il avait accepté que je vienne mais il a également tout fait pour me rendre mon séjour agréable.
Il m'a fait visiter la Clinique Zankli à Jos et présenté à ses collègues.
Lors de mon départ de Jos, il a tenu à me rembourser mes frais de voyage alller-retour
malgré mes protestations.
Je me rappelle que je lui disais que j'étais un " petit patron de societé et que je devrais assumer moi-même,mes responsabilités .Il m'a répondu:" Si tu es un PETIT patron comme tu le dis, eh bien moi je suis ton GRAND frère"(rires).
"LOVETT WAS A MAN" car il avait compris:
-Que Dieu est essentiellement Amour et que la meilleure façon de l'adorer est d'aimer ses créatures
-Que les principales vertus à cultiver dans sa vie sont l'humilité,la générosité,la modération etc
-Que la Vie est la meilleure bénédiction que nous ayons reçue de Dieu et qu'il faut la vivre pleinement avec un coeur rempli de gratitude
-Que quiconque aime Dieu doit pouvoir aimer la bonne musique," l'art de manipuler les sons de manière agréable à l'oreille"

-Que les liens de famille sont sacrés et qu'on ne naît pas dans une famille par hasard.
En outre il avait comme métier celui qui lui permettait de sauver la vie de son prochain et a tenu à l'exercer jusqu'au bout.
PUISSE LE CHEMIN DE RETOUR VERS DIEU DE LOVETT ÊTRE PARSEMÉ DE FLEURS ENCORE PLUS JOLIES QUE LES BELLES FLEURS QU'IL A LUI-MÊME
SEMÉES LE LONG DE SA VIE SUR TERRE.
