Shakespeare wrote that “parting is such sweet sorrow.” But when the parting is the death of one’s beloved child, parting is only pure unadulterated sorrow – bitter, excruciating, agonizing. No parents in the world ever want to outlive their children. When a child dies unexpectedly or after long suffering and illness, a parent is left completely bereft. Consolation seems absolutely out of the question. The Farewell Monument Statue will not give hope or consolation – but it will give grieving parents a place to focus their limitless grief and sorrow. This statue is of distinctive heirloom quality and will stand prominently for many, many years to come in the parish memorial garden, or in a home prayer garden, or mounted on a memorial plaque or tombstone as a testament of a parent’s firm faith that a deceased child is gone, but never forgotten, and that one day the hands of parent and child will touch again forever.
Farewell Monument Statue – Solid Bronze from Germany
The Farewell Monument Statue is 6.7 inches tall, 4.3 inches wide, and 4.3 iches deep. This finely-detailed solid bronze statue comes with mounting screws for placement on a tombstone or memorial pedestal (not included). The Farewell Monument Statue will withstand time’s ravages and weather’s onslaught. Conceived and forged in a workshop and foundry in Germany, the Farewell Monument Statue will be a place to reach, touch, remember, grieve, and begin to hope again.
The Farewell Monument Statue – A Place for Hope
A parent may never again touch a departed child’s hand in this lifetime, but the Farewell Monument Statue will be a place where a grieving parent can remember the many times parent and child held hands in this life. And when, God willing, a parent’s grief subsides after the slow passage of time, the Farewell Monument Statue may become a place where the grieving parent will draw hope that parent and child will be reunited in the next life and will stroll hand-in-hand through Paradise, where the Lord of Life “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4).
