A Garden Full of Butterflies by Lynn S. Combes

In A GARDEN FULL OF BUTTERFLIES, a young girl Marissa is trying to cope and understand the death of her mother. Her father is not only trying to deal with his wife's death but also take care of Marissa.  Marissa finds comfort in a kind neighbor, Mrs. Chancey  and a butterfly garden that Mrs. Chancey takes great pride in. One day Mrs. Chancey explains to Marissa why her butterfly garden is so important to her and tells Marissa a special story that relates to the butterflies but is similar to a biblical parable. With Mrs. Chancey's guidance both Marissa and her Dad learn that death does not have to be final. They can have eternal life with their loved ones.
