Saw a group gathered at the corner of Leonard and Meserole on the way home yesterday afternoon. Buddhist monks with bells and incense around flowers, etc. Didn’t know what it was about until I was catching up with my news feeds today and saw your post about the dwi accident.
Alan Lau was a deliveryman for Chinese Musician Restaurant. He called Elmhurst, Queens his home and is survived by his wife and their young children. A number of Greenpointers and Williamsburgers have stepped forward to start fundraising efforts (including— but not limited to— setting up a Kickstarter or ChipIn page) to cover his funeral expenses and otherwise provide financial assistance to his family in this, their time of need. When I get the details I will post them here.
Thank you, Aaron.
