This statue of St. Francis is in the cemetery where my Mom is. Every
time we visit, I just marvel at the statue and how utterly delightful
it is, particularly in the setting (it's a nice cemetery). I always
leave feeling pretty good. Since I've gotten into photography, I
finally have a way of "embracing" this statue in a more
satisfying way. It's at the SS Peter and Paul Cemetery in Naperville,
Illinois. The sculptor is Frank C Gaylord, of Barre Vermont. The
title of the sculpture is "God's Fool." Thanks to the Wood
family who commissioned it.

Sorry for the heavy watermarking. It's sad that I feel the need to do this, but this is one of my most stolen images.
