Each year for decades, Kenneth Littell and fellow members of Albuquerque Elks Lodge 461 have gathered on Memorial Day at Fairview Memorial Park Cemetery to remember comrades who are no longer with them.
The event at the Elks Rest part of the cemetery, where between 50 and 60 deceased members of the organization are interred, is a special one for the former exalted ruler, who is now 98. He wrote the memorial that is recited each year by his successors in leadership.
He wasn’t going to be participating this year because of his frail health.
