With a heart full of joy and appreciation, I congratulate you very heartily on your 70th Birthday Anniversary. You have been a wonderful and loving wife, a good companion and friend. A caring mum, a doting granny andan inestimable jewel of no mean order. Of course, your birthday is the right time to remember all the special times we have spent together for over 45 years now as husband and wife. All the laughter and fun we shared. Secrets told, feminine pranks played, promises kept and yet to keep.
Today, of course is yet another day that I would expect all the children to pay you more eulogies than they have or will ever pay to me. It is quite understandable because that is exactly what life is all about when a child is born, the father pays all the bills for the naming ceremony, but the mother gets all the gifts, eulogies and monies, including those meant for the child. Same thing happens when the child gets married. The fmal stage or episode is “A ti gbe Baba rele”, ‘God no vex”. Anyway, fair is fair because the father laid all the burden on the mother alone for good nine (9) months, all within less than nine (9) minutes of just a momentary pleasure. God is wonderful He is amazing. He knows and sees all things. He is omnipotent, omni cient and omnipresent. The same yesterday, today and forever. May His holy name be praised forever and ever (Amen).
The children, have, however, forgotten that it was their father who bore all the pains alone as a father when their mother was being given birth to or created by a ‘caesarian’ section from the rib of their father, UNDER ANESTHESIA, during the SURGICAL OPERATION performed by our God Almighty Himself. The operation was very successful and the patient lived. It was indeed a safe delivery of a beautiful, bouncing BABY GIRL (their mother – LARY TEJ) from the RIB of their dutiful, caring and loving father. How wonderful and pleasant is that memory of all what the father alone went through, during that brief life threatening operation but in very careful and mistake – free hands. Thank God for His mercies. All is well that ends well well.
Life’s greate t happiness lies in the knowledge of knowing that you are really loved. And you know, very well, that you are indeed truly loved by all and sundry. On this your special day, may your joy be full and always overflow (Amen). I want to assure you, most of all, that God has promised us many more wonderful and memorable years ahead, as long as we truly and fully depend on Him and Him alone. This, of course, is definitely not insurmountable. May God help u and save us (Amen).
Life begin at 70, they say, for a septuagenarian like you. My prayer for you therefore is that, God will ble s you, keep you, make His face to shine upon you, be gracious unto you and give you long life and everlasting peace. I mean the peace of God, which passeth all understanding. But remember it is always better to have ETERNAL LIFE. LONG LIFE is useless without ETERNAL LIFE. May He in His infinite mercies, grant us both; in the Mighty ame of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Amen).
Your love Charming

TRIBUTE TO MY BIG SIsTER
. I congratulate you on your glorious 70th birthday. Today is a very special day for you. It is the Lord’s doing and this is marvelous in our eyes. Lcclebratc God’s faithfulness and favour upon your life in these seven decades of your sojourn on earth. No doubt the Lord’s Mighty hand h~s sustained you through the thick and thin of life in these past years.
Although we came in contact about 40 years ago, we have lived together under the same roof for about 33 years now, Yes! It was not easy at the beginning. We both had our ups and downs which is normal because we were from different homes and different backgrounds. But God has been so faithful to us. I thank the Almighty God that His banner oflove is over us all. Ever since- we have known Christ as our personal Saviour and Redeemer .of our soul, all arguments are thrown into the garbage whenever there is any issue. This is also because we both know what the word of the Lord says in 1 John2:15-17 .
We also know fully well that we are sojourners or visitors in this world. Phil 3: 12 also quickly comes to mind, then we remember 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 and then finally, we embrace Hebrew 12: 14. Jesus Christ is the reason why we are still staying together in Peace and harmony. Heaven is our destination and we shall not be a cast-away in Jesus mighty name amen. We remember that whatever we sow, we shall reap. My Big sis, you are a very sincere and blunt person. You are also a very good mother to your children and I like you for that. People see us as one big peaceful family, but we also tell them not to copy us at all because different people come with different grace. Thank you for being my big sister and for your advice and endurance most ofthe time.
At seventy, big sis , take things easy and slow down – “ Jejela ‘yegba”. We return all glory back to our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank God for your life. I pray that God grants you long life, sound health and prosperity, so that you will continue to be a veritable instrument in the Lord’s hand for the dismantling of Satan’s kingdom. I wish you more purposeful years in complete blessings. The longer you live, the better your health, grace and anointing will be. I wish you many more beautiful years ahead. Above all, we all shall not miss heaven in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Join me to sing this song:
I WILL PRAISE THEE FROM EVERLASTING,
Yours in Christ vineyard, Yetunde Oluwafunmilayotemi Tejuoso.
Hip Hip HURRAY!!!! Another year another decade is here. It is no mean feat attaining the age ‘70’ . MamTee, I truly thank God for your life, He has been so good and faithful to you. Well, we should not expect less for you too have been faithful to Him arid His words. Your heart yearns for lost souls, you have that passion to see everything works out fine for people. What you can’t tolerate you won’t tolerate there is no half measure where you are concerned. As you attain another milestone in life I wish you the very best, good things shall continue to locate you and I pray all your efforts will yield good fruits at the end ofthe day. Your children and grandchildren will continue to surround your table in Jesus name. Wish you the very best.

My Darling Mother at 70
Mum, it goes without saying that I love you very much. You have been a Pillar of Strength and support to my family and 1. You are the epitome of beauty, grace, kindheartedness and sincerity. You are hardworking, energetic andfull of ideas. I’m sure if given the opportunity you would have created the 8TH wonderful the world.Your generosity is legendary and it is from you I learnt not to attach anything to material things.
My mum can buy something valuable one minute and give it out the next minute. I must say that I took
advantage of your generosity over the years and dealt carelessly with a lot of your jewelry. My mum is extremely young at heart and is fascinated by any gadget be it phone, camera, laptop etc. My children love being around you because you play, dance and exercise with them. You also attend to their every need and wants. My mum is a great cook and very hospitable, I remember when my dad was still very
active in Rotary International and Badminton, I used to really look forward to the generous spread of good food that will be served.
My mum has a good heart and is involved in the day to day affairs of her friends and family members and still has strong friendships with her friends from primary and secondary school (I truly marvel at that) Everybody’s problem is her problem, she sympathizes and empathizes with people and truly has a good heart even towards those who offend her. Mum, you are a joyful person and you inspire joy in others. As you turn 70 I wish you all of God’s blessings in Jesus name. Amen
Princess TUTU AL U (Nee Tejuoso)
My darling mother, I am so blessed to have you as my mother, you’ve been the best mother I could have ever wished for. You have been an inexhaustible source of joy, love and care. You have sacrificed so much and requested nothing in return, you constantly inspire me with always being there for people who go to you with their problems with your kind words and sensible advice. Thank you for raising me to be the man that I am today, thank you for always being there for me. You are a rare GEM. I pray God grants you a long long life and grants you all your heart desires. Happy 70th birthday Mummy, I Love you.

Mum, my dear mum, the bearer oflife – in every true sense of it.
The epitome oflove, the embodiment oflife. The sacrifice of human, the personification of Christ – in you I find in abundance. Words can not express it – but my gratitude is eternal. I am forever grateful to have you as Mother. Happy 70th birthday mum! 70th seems a long time, but time with you seems a decade. I pray for more celebrations, with you life is more wholesome. I Love you mum, I always will.
A million words couldn’t express it. A million years I’ll be loving you still.
Happy Birthday Mum. One True North.
Happy 70th Birthday Mum!!
As blessings go, there is none greater than the blessing of a loving mother and as far as I’m concerned, I won the mum jackpot. I celebrate you on your 70th birthday, you have been an extraordinary mother. You have made such a difference and created so much good in my life! Thank you for loving me, leading me, supporting me and lifting me when I fall.
On your birthday I wish you joy just like you pass around. Mayall your good times multiply, may you live long in good health, happiness and joy.
Happy 70th birthday Mum!!! You are such a wonderful, compassionate, beautiful, generous and inspiring soul. I am grateful and honored to be birthed by you. Mum is very quick to help, nurture and bring out the best in others (not only her children). There was a day you spoke so passionately about helping someone and I was like “how do you know this person again?” That’s how selfless and consistent you are with your generosity. With you, everything has to be spick and span, always in order and straightened out.” Mummy can iron anything and everything. You prioritize neatness and tidiness. I love and admire your relationship with God. You are up so early in the morning to do your one on one devotion with God; and the fact you remember to put the name of all your children, their spouses and grandchildren in your conversation with God depicts your equal and undiluted love for everyone. Always punctual for every occasion.
We thank you for all you do, your never ending love and always watching out for us. You are very special to our family and We love you Mum.
Debisi & Abi Adeoti
Happy 70th birthday Mum!!!
I am grateful to God that he has kept you this long and you are alive to see your 70th birthday, I pray that he keep you for many more years so you will be alive to see all your grandchildren walk down the aisle. You are a woman like no other, you gave me life, nurtured me, taught me, fought for me, shouted at me, comforted me, but most importantly, you have loved me unconditionally. I admire your candid nature and your ability to say things as they are, I admire your generosity, your strength, your courage, your advice and your words of encouragement, I could go and on. Simply put, you’re the best mom anyone could ever wish for.
As the last of eight children. I know you always complain that I am not as clingy as you would like me to be, but that is partly because you have raised me to be independent. I remember my NYSC when I was desperately looking for how to work my posting to Lagos or Abuja, your response to me was that I should leave it to God and if it was meant to be I will be posted to Lagos, which is one thing I have also admired about you, your unwavering faith in God. You have raised me to always look to God and to always trust in Him.
You’ve always been by my side since the day I was born, thank you for all that you have done for me, All the phone calls, love and care, thank you for loving my husband as much as you love me, should I say even more than you love me (smile). Thank you for all your motherly care and love. I want you to know that it does not go unnoticed and I love you with all my heart.
My dearest Mama Tutu, wow what a wonderful age you are achieving; Happy 70th birthday my darling Mama Tuts, we have all come a long way and the Almighty God that has seen you through to this auspiciou age will continue to be with you, to lead, guide and strengthen you. My ageless Mama T, your words of wisdom are often priceless (not counting the heart attack you almost gave me, when you told me that wrong share price) May God continue to be with you, bless you, empower and strengthen you. Love you greatly.
Your one and only Titilola Adebiyi.
On behalf of my wife and I, we thank God for a purpose driven life of our darling Mama Tutu, a mothe
indeed! She dots over all of us like a mother hen and prayerfully so. She has aged gracefully and 70 seems to be a mistake as she can still pass for late fifties! A loving mother she is and our prayer is for her to continue to see Jesus which assures the best anyone could get for the remaining 70 years of her life! .

Darling mama Tutu as I fondly call you. It is so hard to believe you have turned 70 today. Your youthful looks is most deceiving! I thank God for your life, for Him keeping you & seeing you through the 70 eventful years. Eventful Indeed!
May God continue to keep you and bless you. May you go from glory to glory in good health & prosperity. Wishing you a happy birthday with lots of love & kisses I love you!
Adebimpe Tejuoso Alafe-Aluko & Family
MamaT is wonderful person. Lynthea, myself and the kids wish you a happy birthday. May God bless you and fill your year with love, peace,joy, happiness, great health, long life and prosperity. MamaT I kind and sincere. Speaks her mind. Has always been a very calm influence. Cool temperament. Very independent. Ever since my days coming to Lagos from London she has always been kind and generous.
Back in those days, I remember always turning to her for videos and books to read to pass the time away. She got me into Danielle Steel, Sydney Sheldon, Jackie Collins etc When traveling, she has always been great to talk on general things or religion, current affairs, politics where she has her own views. She’s someone I’m always happy to oblige. She never imposes and is very dependable.
Love from: Wole & Lynthea Tejuoso
It gives me great pleasure to eulogise a fantastic Mother and Queen “Mama-Tee” on the occasion of her 70’h Birthday. “Big mummy”, as she is fondly called, is an epitome of confidence, Grace and also a fun loving fashion Icon. In addition to being a strong pillar to Kabiyesi, she is a great mother in the Tejuoso family and a true blessing to the great people of Oke-Ona. I recall with nostalgia the early days when we used to visit her at Somade Crescent in Surulere, she would make the most sumptuous meals for us and ensure we had lots of fun. On our summer holidays, we used to travel around the world together as a family and we had fantastic experiences bonding. Over the last few decades, her love for her creator has become more and more evident and it is not unusual for her to engage you in discussions offaith. Her deep Biblical knowledge and prayerful prowess is there for all to see.
On this occasion of your 70th birthday, I, along with my wife Openifoluwa and our children, wish you many more years in good health, continuing prosperity and long life. Cheers to a truly remarkable Woman….!!
Femi & Ope Tejuoso
