Angel of Grief

A little while ago I uploaded some scans from old negatives of the Angel of Grief monument on the grave of William Scott Youree in the Scott Cemetery in Scottsville, TX. In doing some research on that I found that this was a genre known as Angel of Grief, Weeping Angel or Grief en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_of_Grief. I also learned there are a number of such angels in Texas including the Hill family angel in Houston's Glenwood Cemetery.

 

As I just got a new camera I thought I'd try it out by visiting Glenwood to photograph that angel. Much to my surprise I found a second angel there. It is about 100 feet or so southwest of the Hill Angel.

 

It reads:
