Sam's Rock - Samantha Ann McDonald

Cave Hill monument

The stone portion of the monument was designed by Terry Joy of Joy Monument in Louisville, Kentucky. He would not call himself an artist but we beg to differ — he is very talented.

Christ and Sami are bronze. Tom White is the sculptor; he is out of Bethel, Maine. You can learn more about his work and read about Tom's awesome story at TOMWHITESTUDIO.COM.

Directions to Sam's site in Cave Hill cemetery

Go in the Grinstead Dr. entrance, take the first left, follow the signs to the office. Immediately past the office take a right (pond will be on your left as you go up the hill) take a left at the end of the road. The plot is immediately to the right in a "bowl" shaped area, lot 15. (this area used to be a lily pond) She is under a very large tree — a Wingnut tree — a large branch overhangs her resting place.

Also at Cave Hill is the resting place of Brittiney Wish Bevin, a young woman who had a love for the Lord and children. She has a monument by Tom White — it is truly inspired. It is a life size sculpture of Christ on one knee with His arms outstretched welcoming five children unto Himself. Brittiney is one of the children and is helping bring the children to Christ — it is a beautiful testimony. To learn more about Brittiney's story, see the WHERE'S JESUS story that ran in the SOUTHEAST OUTLOOK newspaper and also on TOMWHITESTUDIO.COM.
