The original life-size bronze sculpture of 'Come Unto Me' came forth with the expectations of being a comfort to grieving families experiencing the loss of a loved one. Before commissioned by Ted Spilsbury, Jerry Anderson shared his desire to present an inspirational piece of art that would touch the hearts of all who gazed upon it. Together, Jerry and Ted discussed various ideas. It was strictly in the planning stages with no real indication that the monument would ever be realized. Jerry mentioned to Ted that he prays for inspiration in all of his art. It was agreed that after prayerful consideration they would meet again.
Two weeks passed quickly. As Jerry discussed his vision of what the sculpture should be; Ted, with tears in his eyes, knew that he had received divine confirmation. The 'Come Unto Me' bronze sculpture took more than a year to make its first appearance. Unveiled in the year 2000; today, 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. It is a portrayal of an aged woman's body, returning to its symbolic prime, and back to the arms of our Savior.
