And when Alma had done this he departed out of the land of Zarahemla, as if to go into the land of Melek.

And it came to pass that he was never heard of more; as to his death or burial we know not of.

Behold, this we know, that he was a righteous man; and the saying went abroad in the church that he was taken up by the Spirit, or buried by the hand of the Lord, even as Moses.

But behold, the scriptures saith the Lord took Moses unto himself; and we suppose that he has also received Alma in the spirit, unto himself; therefore, for this cause we know nothing concerning his death and burial.

Alma 45:18-19

The story behind The Road To Melek

Alma the Younger was born during the second century before Christ and lived into the early part of the first century B.C.  He was the first chief judge elected by the Nephites when they altered their form of government to establish rule by judges instead of kings.  Alma the Younger was also the presiding high priest over the church among the Nephites who were followers of Jesus Christ.

As ruler of the Nephites, he fought to preserve their form of government when civil war erupted and the dissenters joined forces with the Lamanites.  Alma fought with the sword, face to face, with the leader of the rebels and with the Lamanite king.  He later resigned his political office to devote full time to what amounted to an extensive itinerant ministry among his own people.

Fine Art Framing: Al Young Studios' custom framing services for original artworks and giclees (overview)

By Al R. Young
We have framed our own artworks for more than 25 years, and during that time we have provided a variety of framing services to patrons upon request.  For various reasons--including constant change in the availability of moulding styles--we cannot offer off-the-shelf framing options or response times typically associated with such a service.  Of necessity, all of our framing projects are custom projects that are priced, completed, and billed accordingly.  For example, inasmuch as the Studios does not maintain a selection of off-the-shelf moulding options, moulding styles actually available at the time of a request for information about framing options must be researched...
