Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia, April 2004 "Verily I say unto you whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child he shall not enter therein." Mark 10:13
Bellefontaine Cemetery, St. Louis, Missouri, July 2004 An angel from the "Flapper" period of the 1920's, she sits between Henry Ames and his wife Jennie Marmaduke Ames.
Forest 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".
