An angel headstone monument is a wonderful way to honor a loved one who has died. Typically a separate statue, it sits on top of a headstone, but oftentimes can be found as part of it as well. Angels symbolize spirituality and are commonly found in a variety of poses, each having a different meaning.

A headstone monument or statue of a weeping angel symbolizes deep grief over an untimely death. If the angel is leaned over or onto the headstone itself, that is a representation of an angel guarding the grave.
