Cherub by lbellamy

You wouldn’t ordinarily think of a cemetery as a great place to spend a day visiting, but we did just exactly that last week. We visited Forest Lawn in Los Angeles, and spent about three hours finding celebrity plots (like Walt Disney, Clark Gable, and Nat King Cole) and admiring the architecture. We honestly could have spent all day there! This particular little cherub statue was one of my personal favorites.
