“Grief  and  bereavement  are  universal  human experiences…Offer  empathy  not  just  sympathy”

My mother, Mrs. Alice Young Hester, pictured here teaching. She loved her students and loved teaching.  I’ve found that her students also loved her. She was pregnant with me in this old black and white photo. She worked up to the day before I was born.

We understand grief first hand. Mother’s Backyard Inc., MB Enterprises and my book, My Backyard Garden, A Memoir of How Love Conquers Grief, were born due to the death of my mother.

My Mother, on her deathbed, told me “here is your book.” She told me to create something that can help others. Create something that can help the children.

Mother’s Backyard believes that the best place a child can learn and grow is in a loving family and that loving family environments will extend to building better communities for us all.

A  Valuable  Resource  For

Funeral Directors

Ministers

HR/EAP & Grief EDUCATORS & Counselors

Probate Lawyers

Life Insurance Agents

and  Your  Clients 

To have that loving family environment, even the best of families have to address and overcome many difficult times. Mother’s Backyard is a non-profit that is focusing on those topics and those times when families need support. As you know, the loss of a loved one to death is one of those times families need grief assistance.

So we offer the book, My Backyard Garden, A Memoir of How Love Conquers Grief as a resource for those family members or friends who may be grieving and suffering in silence long after the funeral services. #empathyforgrief

The book is a brief read and was written to help those who need to read about someone else’s grief journey so that they can open up about their own emotions, gain insights into their journey ahead and continue to move through the stages of grief.
