PASSING IN TO THE ARMS OF OUR LORD

This is exactly as I had it pictured in my mind.

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.
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 in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."John 3:16
