I've always loved this sculpture - you can read about it's history HERE. I think grief is a hard thing - and different for everybody. I know we want to quickly get through the 'stages' and be 'normal' again. But even if we try… it doesn't work that way. It takes the time, and cost, it takes. I view it as an honor to the person/animal I'm grieving over.
When I lived in Hingham, I would love to roam the cemetery and view this Angel. I thought… the people who grieve can give their anguish over to this angel, and rest. She will weep, not letting the deceased be forgotten.
I love cemeteries - have I told you that? But when I 'go' I would like a seat-type sculpture, with a marble sleeping cat on one side of it. :)Pin It
