Notice how the old woman is gazing back at the life that she is leaving…
then passes through the veil of death into the open arms of the Savior.
This is how I want to go. 🙂
The “Come Unto Me” bronze sculpture took more than a year to make its first appearance. Unveiled in the 2000, the original life-sized bronze monument stands in the grand foyer of the Spilsbury Mortuary in St.George, Utah.
It has become a scenic attraction, in addition to a comfort to countless families at a most tender time of their lives.
It portrays the spiritual journey from mortality to immortality: an aged woman’s body, returning to its prime, and back to the arms of our Savior.
Death is not the end. We all have an eternal destiny, as “Come Unto Me” portrays.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 (KJV)
