A Name on a Lamppost

On April 13, a tragic pedestrian death took place on Tillary Street at the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. (Posting here.)

Witnesses said that a man in his late thirties or forties tried to make it across the street but tripped over his own sneakers. He was hit by a dark gray Accord headed for the bridge.

Now, a memorial has appeared on a lamppost honoring the memory of Ron Mortensen. Along with flowers and photos of Mr. Mortensen, someone has posted the following:

"If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again."
