One of the fancier memorials featured several bronze angels mourning over a relief of the deceased with a poem. It was overall too much to be a good photo, but I liked this detail.

No, I like this one. The consoling hands leaves us wondering as to who is consoling an angel. And yes, the detail is very nice.
