Edelmiro Abad Elvira


Edelmiro Abad was born in this town

Elvira moved to the United States at age seven and was working as a senior vice president at Fiduciary Trust Bank the day the planes struck the towers. The roughly 100 residents of his tiny hometown chose to honor their departed son by building this small memorial to him and all those who died that day. It stands atop a hill in the cemetery of the town church, watching over the small pueblo below it.
