Last September we lost a great pillar of our Bronx family and community, the late Morgan Powell.  The void that his passing created in our community was immeasurable along with the outpouring of grief .

Now, months later after fund raising for his memorial, Nilka Martell, one of Morgan’s closest friends, has just announced that his family as agreed to allow his ashes to be placed in Woodlawn Cemetery — a place he loved so very much like all of The Bronx.

An exact date hasn’t been set yet but we’re looking at some time in the Spring.  Once a date has been finalized, we will be letting you know.

We couldn’t be happier to have our beloved Morgan will finally be able to rest on the soil of The Bronx he loved so very much.

Thank you to everyone who has been patient and have helped this coming home journey come true for a real Bronx Hero
