Fort Worth, TX - United States

what a great image I love how you have some blue reflected off the sculpture. v

Cheri Randolph replied:

Joan, thanks for your comment & vote. What's so interesting about the placement of the tomb, is that it is angled to take advantage of the sun coming through the window. This was in Winter, when only a little light comes through. I'm hoping to go back in Summer when there is more reflection on the angel.

Gun, I am complimented that you noticed this one. I've heard a story that this tomb is positioned so that the maximum disbursement of blue light is noticed at the point of the Summer Equinox. I plan to go back in the next few days to try and get another shot. We'll see if it is true. Thanks for your comment & f/v!

Joy, I am deeply touched that this piece meant so much to you. Sisterhood is such a strong bond, that I'm confident your sister's spirit will be with you as you take steps toward healing. Please accept my sincere condolences.

San Francisco, CA - United States

Oh how beautiful! When I read the comments and saw that this tomb has the inscription, "Sister", my heart just broke all over again. My sister passed away last month. I really love angel tombstones...but this one is the loveliest I've ever seen. Favorited.

New Orleans, LA - United States

Hi Steve, Yes it's a very moving piece located in Metairie Cemetery. One story goes that it was erected for Sara Lavinia Todd Hyams, wife of Chapman H. Hyams, who died while traveling in New York in 1914. There is an inscription of "Sister" across the bottom, and I have heard that Sara first placed it there for her sister who preceded her in death. Thanks for the v/f!
