This monument was put in sometime very recently, because it was not erected yet the last time I visited Lake View Cemetery, but it was there when I traveled there Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend.
I’m not sure that I have any words that could illuminate more than this sculpture and its placement. It was recently installed – it definitely was not there this time last year, and it absolutely took my breath away.
That would be because they’re metal and welded to the monument. But they’re still very cute.
I don’t know any more about this monument than what is engraved on the stone. Davis Lawler erected it in memory of his parents – why a Sphinx made an appropriate monument to them, I don’t know. But then, that’s kind of appropriate, isn’t it?
Since I haven’t had much time to write while visiting, I thought I’d give you more Forest Lawn photo. These are from my visit in March (before I incurred the wrath of the goose).
Sorry for the erratic posting. I’ve been on a writing tear of a different kind lately. So anyway, I’m up in Buffalo this weekend and will hopefully get some cool new photos. Until then, here are some photos from my previous trips to Forest Lawn.
