On the top of little Susie May's tombstone is a dove and anchor. The dove represents purity, peace, and the Holy Ghost. It is written in John 1:32 - And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from Heaven like a dove...
The anchor underneath the dove represents hope. It is written in Hebrews 6:19 -- Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast... The virtue of Hope when artistically sculpted in human form is almost always seen with an anchor.
I can almost feel their Pain and Longing for their
Daughter in her Tombstone,
Thanks for sharing.
