What is the angel doing? she asked.
The question seemed to come out of nowhere, but then I realized she was looking at the print my aunt and uncle had just sent us. It's a photograph of an angel statue... a statue I tried to show them in a recent cemetery tour, but the tomb had been locked. They must have found it in their time in NOLA, and later mailed it to us as a thank you gift.
What is the angel doing?
Well... the statue is over a tomb, and I imagine the sculptor made the angel crying as if the angel was sad that the person had died.
But that doesn't make sense to me. I don't think an angel would cry. I think an angel would rejoice because when someone dies they go to heaven to be with God and the angels. Right?
Like how Grandma and Grandpa might die soon. Because they're not doing so well.
Yes. We may cry, because we're sad and we miss that person here on earth, but I think that the angels rejoice.
