A memorial service has been planned for Bennett Coleman, the St. Jude patient from Acadiana who died of cancer early Monday morning.
In Lafayette, a celebration service with the Coleman family will be held Saturday, May 3 at 11am in the Bayou church Auditorium, at 2234 Kaliste Saloom Road.
The Coleman family will be in the foyer from 9-11 am to receive guests. They ask that everyone wear a blue shirt/ garment in honor of Bennett. They prefer no black as this is a celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers and gifts they ask that donations be made to St. Jude in memory of Bennett.
In Memphis, the family will have a small private ceremony to spread Bennett's ashes. This will most likely happen Wednesday.
The family asks for people not to send anything to Memphis as it will complicate the logistics of getting everything home this week.
