A Quote by Alma P. Burton on action, blessings, body, change, death, existence, god, immortality, learning, life, men, mortality, progress, spirit, time, and tragedy

It is in the plan that man should die. The rich, the poor; the bond, the free; the great, the lowly-all must die. Death comes to everyone. Death * a necessary step to our eterrzal progression. But death is not the end, it is only a transitional state whereby we move from one stage of action to another. The spirit continues to live, move, think, learn, and to engage in all those activities associated with existence in our next estate. The physical body is placed in the grave, there to remain until the time of our resurrection. The change called death is ordained of God awl is a blessing to man. It would be tragic if men could never be released from mortality that they might put on immortality. Death releases man from his mortal existence and makes possible his onward progress toward eterrzal life and exaltation.
