Angels Hovering Around

I stopped today at the Oakhill Cemetery in Smithville to take a volunteer tombstone photo and spotted this gravesite from a distance. I had to get closer and check it out.

This is some impressive monument and having recently been involved with the purchase of a couple of tombstones, I can imagine just how much money went into this. It's beautiful from all sides.

I was so enthralled by this gravesite that it was not until I got back into the car and looked back at it before leaving that I noticed there were two other graves with smaller angels a little past this one. You can see them in the background of this closeup I took of the engraving.

I believe these angels were all in one big family plot. The Flint family must have had a special feeling for angels.

You're not in the path of those wild fires in Bastrop are you?
