An old expression

Calvary Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois

Have you ever heard the expression, “Time Flies”?  This symbol, a winged hourglass, brings that expression to life, so to speak.  A reminder in stone that life is short and that time is fleeting, every minute of every day brings one closer and closer to death.
