52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Favorite Photo

This post is part of Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks for 2018. The prompt for the week of January 8, 2018, is "Favorite Photo."

This photo is ONE of my favorites, not THE favorite, as I have many favorites, especially of my family and of our ancestors.

And I guess I should say this photo is of one of my favorite subjects, because I’ve taken several photos of this statue. In fact, for a while, I took a photo of her whenever I visited Sunset Hill Cemetery in Valdosta, Georgia. I finally had to tell myself, no more photos of her. I’m not the only one fascinated by this statue. I found several photographs of her in my dad’s collection.

The Lady of Sunset Hill Cemetery, Valdosta, Georgia

I used to refer to this statue as “the angel” even though she has no wings, but lately, I’ve been calling her “the goddess” or “the lady of Sunset Hill.” She stands above the grave of Kate Martin Howell.

Whenever I visit Sunset Hill, I swing by this statue and commune with her for a few minutes. She looks so serene and peaceful.
