Angel Standing Against the CrossForest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, September 2002
Wings extended perfectly to the cross, this beautiful piece of statuary sits almost hidden behind a mausoleum in front of the pond. Although I have seen many angels with their backs pressed against a cross, this is, so far, the best I've seen.
This monument's inscription, for Howard Agnew Johnson, reads: "He that doeth for God abideth forever".
