The celebration was also an opportunity for family members residing abroad to unite with their loved ones in celebration of Mrs. Tyson’s special day.
The following afternoon, Sunday May 21st, 2017, celebrants worshipped with the Tyson family and friends to pray God’s continued blessings on the life of Mrs. Tyson, her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, friends, loved ones and care providers.
Reverend Dr. Benjamin Browne officiated at the celebratory service. In attendance was the Honorable Eugene Hamilton, Parliamentary Representative for the area, as well as Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ian Queeley and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr. Terrance James.
Opposition Representative for the area Dr. Terrence Drew also extended commendations to Mrs. Tyson the following day and presented her with a gift basket in celebration of her birthday milestone.
Family members and worshippers were grateful for the opportunity to be in the company of this community stalwart and used the opportunity to share their memories of Mrs. Tyson, whose husband, passed away some 12 years ago.
Mrs. Tyson expressed her gratefulness for the immense blessings God has bestowed on her by granting her a long, fruitful and vibrant life and for the constant support of her children, family members and friends.
The Tyson family, through this medium, expresses sincere appreciation to everyone who made Mrs. Tyson’s birthday celebration a memorable and joyful one.
The family asks for continued prayers for their mother as she continues on her golden years of life at the extremely ripe age of 90.
To God be The Glory; great things he hath done!
