Some Cemetery Statue Photos

Halloween is this Thursday and today I am taking a break from my usual Tombstone Tuesday to instead post some of my favorite photos that I have taken of cemetery statues.

First, the beautiful Kuhl monument in Woodlawn Cemetery, Ohio City, Ohio. This couple is gazing at each other for all eternity.

Beautiful! I wonder if the Kuhl statues actually resemble the couple.

Some other beautiful statues in local cemeteries:

This lovely angel statue is only a few miles away in Kessler/Liberty Cemetery. There is one just like it at Riverside Cemetery, near Geneva, Indiana:

Inscription on the Mumaugh monument, Woodland Cemetery, Lima, Ohio:
Each departed friend
Is a magnet
That attracts us
To the next world.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at these monument photos.

Until next week…

    You will have to check out the angel on the tombstone of Christine George in the North Grove Cemetery in Celina, OH. This is a newer stone and it has a really huge angel.

      I will do that! Thanks for letting me know about it.

    When we visit relatives at the Kessler/Liberty Cemetery, I always visit the angel monument! Amazing find in rural Mercer County!
