Brock’s angel

A popular post here on Gravestoned is “Angel of Grief,” posted last December. A few months ago, while visiting Ashley Union Cemetery, I spied another, smaller angel of grief at the grave of Brock Anthony Van Scyoc (b. 1987, d. 2006).

Beloved Son


Only part of Brock’s angel is carved on his stone, but it is not so hard to imagine the entire angel collapsed in grief at his grave.

In comparison, here are the photos from last year’s “Angel of Grief” post:
