Soaring Like An Eagle - The Interesting, The Odd, The Beautiful...For the Graveyard Rabbit Carnival

I spotted this unique marker from the entrance of Mount Comfort Cemetery in Fayetteville, AR.  Immediately,  I headed in its direction just to see what it was.  I was pleasantly surprised to find this beautiful tribute tucked in between two very average stones as if it belonged in all its glorious splender. 

I hope the family will continue to maintain this beautiful piece. I fear it will be lost to the elements in a short amount of time. I believe it to be handcarved from wood.

One of the most beautiful days that
filled our lives with glee is when God
sent us our precious angel, we named you
Terry Lee.
How we miss your sweet smile
it looked a lot like mine. Those beautiful
blue eyes, how brightly they did shine.
We all watched you grow up and turn
into a man. If ever help was needed
you'd always lend a hand. Everything
about you, we hold dearly
God Handed you your golden wings, this
we see clearly. Now you are soaring
like an eagle in the sky, watching over
all of us. For now we say


  1. Wow, Tammi, that's amazing! In some cemeteries, this just 'wouldn't fly' -- nice to know there are the other kind of cemeteries, where it can!

  2. What a wonderful tribute to their child!As unique as he was I'm sure.thank you for sharing this one!

  3. He was a very good friend of mine. The eagle was carved by his uncle by chainsaw and heavily lacquered to help it last longer. An awesome tribute to person he was!
