Original Post

Didn't Jim Bacchus help folks get visas in the 70s?...

We're living in sad times...So much info. online about what really happened at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control, don't know what to believe, it will drive us crazy, we just have to follow the precautions about this monster and hope the experts create the vaccine soon...

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Paramdeo (Vishnu) Baichu and his eldest son Danraj (Vijay).

On the morning of Sunday April 5th, Vishnu tragically left this world. Upon his fathers passing, his eldest son Vijay preemptively checked himself into Jamaica Hospital as he was exhibiting the same symptoms his father had the day before. Within 24 hours, the family was hit with yet another tragedy. At only 24 years old, Vijay's life was cut short.

Vishnu and Vijay left us far too soon. They were an integral part of an upstanding family, and were always there to lend support or a helping hand to anyone around them. Vishnu was born and raised in Adventure (Essequibo Coast, Guyana) and settled in Queens, New York where he fell in love with and married his wonderful wife Dhanwantie (Sabo) Baichu. Vishnu was a dedicated father, brother, husband and friend. He adored all of his children, and would do anything for the people he loved. Vishnu would often drive for hours on end, as if it was no big deal, to be with his family or support them in times of need.

Being the oldest, Vijay was a role model to his younger siblings and a pillar of support for his family. He studies computer science at LaGaurdia College and planned to transfer to Queens College this fall to pursue his Bachelors Degree. Vijay was a soft soul. Everyone who was lucky enough to really get to know him, knew that he was full of kindness and love. He chose to spend his time wisely, as he spent it with the people he loved most. His family and friends, siblings, and beloved nani.

Vishnu and Vijay are loved deeply by each person they came across. Their absence has left a hole in the hearts of everyone who's lives they have touched. They will be deeply missed, and always remembered.

Vishnu and Vijay leave behind their wife/mother Dhanwantie (Sabo) Baichu from Leguan, Guyana. As well as their two kind and caring sons/brothers Takur (Sanjay) Baichu (23 years old) and Tarik (Akshay) Baichu (17 years old). Along with an intelligent and insightful daughter/sister Yahvi (Priyanka) Baichu (15 years old).

Due to the current circumstances, the family is unable to hold a public wake or funeral service.

Dalip Singh (1941-2020)

Dalip Singh died in London, England at the age of 79, a victim of CV-19.  He worked in the Personnel Department of the Albion Sugar Estate, and at the age of 19 migrated to England. There he completed his GCE “O” Levels and “A” Levels, and later qualified as an Accountant. He worked for many years in the City of London before retiring. His daughter and only child Geeta predeceased him by 3 years.

Lord, we humbly recommend the soul of thy servant into thy hands. Impute not unto him the follies of his youth, nor any of the error and miscarriages of his life. But strengthen him in his agony, and carry him safely through his last distress. Let not his faith waver, nor his hope fail, nor his charity be disordered. Let him die in peace, and rest in hope, and rise in Glory. Lord, unto thy gracious Mercy and Protection we commit him. Spare him whom thou has redeemed with thy most precious blood. And deliver him for whose sake thou didst suffer death, from all evil and from everlasting death. Let his portion be with the Patriarchs and Prophets, with the Apostles and Martyrs, and all thy holy Saints, in the arms of Christ, in the bosom of Felicity, and in the Kingdom of God for ever. Amen.

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) --A 34-year-old mother of twin boys who worked the overnight shift at a Queens hospital is among those who have died from COVID-19 related complications in New York City.

Prea Nankieshore worked in the emergency department at Long Island Jewish Hospital Forest Hills helping to register patients.

Satash “Bala” Deonarine was born on June 30th, 1981 in Little Biaboo Mahaica Creek, Guyana. He has gone to rest on April 7, 2020, in East New York, Brooklyn NY.

He is the son of
Rajpaul “SonSon” Deonarine & Khematie “Kay” Deonarine.
He is the younger brother of
Rajmatie “Mala” Heeralall.
He is the fourth grandchild of Deonarine Balgobind and Bhagwandai Balgobind.
He is the fourth grandchild of Seebaran Mahabir and Hanraji Mahabir.

In total on both sides of Satash’s family, he has 38 first cousins.

Satash attended Little Biaboo Primary School, As a child, he was a quiet humble kid, a perfect son that any mother and father would want in a kid. As a young child, Satash was a hardworking kid even as a teenager in Guyana working alongside his mother father and sister helping his family earn a living in the field of agriculture.

At the age of 19, Satash and his family migrated on May 21, 2000, to the United States from Guyana, residing in East New York, Brooklyn, New York for the last 19 years.

On March 31st, 2008 he tied the knot with the love of his life, Menakshi “Usha” Deonarine. The lovely pair were inseparable, and have built a wonderful foundation of love for the last 12 years.
Together they have three kids:
Aryan Satash Deonarine age 10 January 19th, 2010
Arjay Davin Deonarine age 7 December 19th, 2012
Siara Rohini Deonarine age 8 Months August 15th, 2019
He was a wonderful Father to his children and they are his number one priorities over anything else.

Satash learned plumbing as a tradesman as his profession. He selflessly helped many of his friends to enter the field of work. He always extended a helping hand to family and friends. Satash’s place of employment was New York Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling in Richmond Hill, NY. There he has held the position of a Plumbing Mechanic. Satash was a great mentor, co-worker, and friend to those who have worked with.

Satash was a tall, handsome, passionate, and caring guy. He made his presence known in life because he was a gentle person with a kind heart.
He was a loving family man. His family came first and he has made an impact on many people globally.

To our beloved Satash,

You gave no one a last farewell and didn’t say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. A million times we miss you and a million times we cry. If love alone could have saved you, you would still be alive. Our family tree lost a branch that broke all of our hearts. In life we loved you dearly, In death, we love you still. In our hearts, you hold a place where no one can fill, but you didn’t go alone because part of us went with you the day God took you home. ❤️

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- A 34-year-old mother of twin boys who worked the overnight shift at a Queens hospital is among those who have died from COVID-19 related complications in New York City.

Prea Nankieshore worked in the emergency department at Long Island Jewish Hospital Forest Hills helping to register patients.

 


"We lost a dedicated mother with a heart of gold," fiance Marcus Khan said. "We lost a sister. We lost a friend. I lost the love of my life."

Unable to hold back tears, Khan tried to put into words the pain of losing his fiancée, who died Sunday after losing a battle with the coronavirus.

Khan said she loved her colleagues and her job and insisted on being there even as concerns about the virus escalated.

"She said, 'I can't leave the hospital understaffed. They're already flooded with patients. Doctors are working hard, and I can't leave them like that. I have to do my part,'" he said.

Then last week, the young mother of 8-year-old twins became a patient at the very hospital where she'd previously celebrated special moments with colleagues. Days later, she was dead.

Co-workers paid tribute to her in chalk on the sidewalk, promising to remember her always.

"Our team at LIJ Forest Hills is a family that now mourns the loss of one of its own," the hospital said in a statement. "But as we grieve, we will also persevere in caring for our patients with the grace and strength that Prea displayed day in and day out."

Even as Khan and the rest of Nankieshore's family struggle to come to grips with her death, they have a message for others.

"I just want everyone to take this seriously," Khan said. "This pain, this pain that me and her family are feeling right now, you don't want your loved ones to feel this pain."

Thank you to everyone for your condolences and kind thoughts and prayers. We appreciate your comforting support. Due to the circumstances, we will not be holding traditional services at this time. Instead, we ask that you light a candle at 2pm tomorrow, April 9th to celebrate his life.
