DETROIT, May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In 1907 Anna Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother's Day.  She persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, the 2nd Sunday of May.  She and her supporters began to write to ministers, businessmen, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day.  By 1911 Mother's Day was celebrated in almost every state.  President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 made the official announcement proclaiming Mother's Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the second Sunday in May.

    November 23, 2011 is a date that will forever follow Nils Mulford, and the rest of his family. On that day, he lost his daughter to a car accident in the Seaford area. He didn't know it then, but that tragedy would be a call to action, all in the name of preventing future heartbreak for other families. Just south of Seaford, where Ockels Road and Airport Road meet Route 13, sits a memorial for Alexis Brielle Mulford. When she was just 16-years old, she lost her life in a tragic car accident.More
