Open Gates

Goodwill Cemetery, Loogootee, Indiana

In the Goodwill Cemetery at Loogootee, Indiana, a red granite block marker displays an incised carving of an open gate, a common symbol found in American cemeteries.  The open gates, which are central to the Last Judgment, are opened to a banner above that reads “AT REST”.  The gates here represent a passageway from one realm to the next.  The gates are the portal for saved souls to make their passage from the Earthly realm to the Heavenly realm upon Christ’s return.
