This was a beautiful statue of an elderly man and woman sitting on a bench that we came across when visiting Laurel Hill Cemetery. The man is holding a book that reads, "New gifts for the garden". The woman is wearing glasses and is holding a cat on her lap, as she stares at the book the man is holding.
