The weeping angel

How does one express grief?
 Yesterday, Cheri, her cousins from Connecticut, and  I toured Cantor’s Art Center at the Stanford University campus. We visited also the grave of Henry Clay Lathrop, the brother of Jane Lathrop Stanford. 25 years ago I visited the grave for the first time while attending a conference in Stanford University.

I remembered being moved to tears at that time after I saw the statue of the weeping angel.I felt the same overwhelming emotion yesterday.
