HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR SISTER- NICOLETTE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR SISTER- NICOLETTE FERNANDEZ OKEWOLE 

Another day unfolds,

filled with blessings of a new celebration,

A season filled with laughter and a new glass of “beajolais”

A path filled with a riddle of red roses and the birth of a warm dance,

A time to embrace the beauty of new energies,

The harvest is ripe with many more stories,

And we are blessed to embrace you in many more ways.

Another day unfolds 

Many stories to be told 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIC,

Lots of Love

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR BROTHER – STEVEN FERNANDEZ

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR BROTHER – STEVEN 

We shall feed on the grace of your silence,

And the gentle strings that create warmth,

We shall move mountains, armed with the shields of love

For great things are possible even through the fears of a storm.

We shall sing through this moment of unknown melodies, 

For what we have before our every eyes …

Is a chance to celebrate 

A choice to liberate 

the will to educate 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE- LOTS OF LOVE ALWAYS

IN MEMORY OF CHIEF MRS YEMISI SANUSI

Your seeds have painted the riddle of time,

with a warm dance and a spell of white roses,

Your silence was enough to reassure the flock of many new souls

We have enjoyed dance,

and the new lessons, embracing in the wind

for kind music is selfless

Its rays will live forever 

REST IN PEACE MA 

Tony Tokunbo Fernandez
