Absent Brothers

IN MEMORIAM They have passed into the light, which is beyond the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The places, which have known them, shall know them no more. But their virtues are written upon the Tablets of Love and Memory.

ELEVEN O'CLOCK TOAST: You have heard the tolling of 11 strokes. This is to remind you that with Elks, the hour of 11 has a tender significance. Wherever Elks may roam, whatever their lot in life may be, when this hour tolls upon the dial of night, the gret heart of Elkdom swells and throbs. It is the golden hour of recollection, the homecoming of those who wander, the mystic roll call of those who will come no more. Living or dead, an Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken. Morning and noon may pass him by, the light of day sink heedlessly in the West, but ere the shadows of midnight shall fall, the chimes of memory will be pealing forth the friendly message, To our absent members.
