This is a young lady, only 6 months of age, when she passed, who was (is) remembered by this flying angel atop her tombstone.
When I first saw it I thought is was a wide receiver out for a long touchdown pass ... but, no. The pose the cherub angel is holding is similar, but not a football thing, but chasing something else.

The fingers of both hands are broken off, and the tips of each wing is now broken. I surely hope it was not done by the lawn mowers in the cemetery.
