Guyanese Mother and Son die in road accident in Upstate New York

The Times Union.com is reporting from Saratoga New York:

A mother and son were killed instantly when their car veered off the road and hit a tree Friday afternoon (April 18, 2014). Mervyn Albert, 30, was driving his mother home to Schenectady when he lost control on a back road and went airborne, State Police said. His mother, Angeli Persaud, 56, was in the passenger seat. The crushed wreck of their gray Mazda halted on the grass near the tree.

Persaud was a home health aide who cared for an elderly woman in Schuylerville. She did not have her driver’s license, so her son chauffeured her to and from her job, said Persaud’s brother, Shammie Persaud.

The accident happened on Burgoyne Road off Route 29 around 2:20 p.m. Friday. It occurred in broad daylight and with dry road conditions. State Police said speed was a factor.

Shammie Persaud said his nephew was a safe driver. He had no speeding tickets or accidents. “He was always careful because he had a plan for life,” Shammie Persaud said.

Albert and his mother had moved to Queens from Guyana five years ago and then relocated to Schenectady last year because it was more affordable. They lived with Persaud’s parents at 1032 Forest Road.

Albert hoped to buy a house and bring his wife and family here from Guyana. On a recent visit to his homeland, he and his wife adopted two young cousins who had been orphaned. Albert worked at Staples and studied computer science at Schenectady County Community College.

“He never missed a class and always did his best,” Shammie Persaud said. “He was always mannerly, never cursed or used drugs or anything like that.”

Shammie Persaud wept when he talked about his sister. She was the eldest sister of the family, and as the eldest, she took care of her younger brothers and sisters.

“She taught me to be kind and gentle and to pray,” he said.

Angeli Persaud worked a second home health job in Manhattan every Saturday to Monday. She attended church at the Assembly of God in Queens.

Police informed Shammie Persaud of his sister and nephew’s death just as he was leaving home to attend Good Friday services at Calvary Tabernacle Church in Schenectady.

He said it was an auspicious sign that his sister died on Good Friday.

“This is one way of expressing her love for the Lord and today she is with him,” he said.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Lower your utility bill by disconnecting appliances, Televisions and personal computers, turning off
    a person’s water heater during times when we’re not home, boosting or cutting your heat or maybe electric simply by a couple of levels,
    and lowering the number of working hours your pool
    area pump runs You’ll have the event offered to everyone of all ages
    or only to a specific institution; for example, precisely the elementary classes students
    or maybe the high education students.
