Vallowe Monument, South Side Cemetery

A recording angel sits on a tall shaft, writing in the Book of Life. The dates are in English, but the base of the monument bears an inscription from the Luther Bible: “Sondern wir glauben, durch die Gnade des Herrn Jesu Christi selig zu werden” (“But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved,” Acts 15:11).
