Parbati cried buckets of tears when her name was not called on the Death Announcement for her cousin’s mother-in-law’s sister. Her husband was puzzled by this. After all, they were not related or closely connected. Parbati had her own explanation “All Taam, Dick an Harry name call. Dis wan a Merica, dah wan a Cyanada. Me deh right hay an mih name na call.” When her name was mentioned by the Guyana Cultural Association in New York, she was overjoyed and the Death Announcement episode faded into the background.
