Mildred Bennett’s extended family came together on Friday for a joyous celebration of her life and influence. I was asked to say a few words at the funeral service on behalf of the National Trust and the Preservation Resource Center. After the funeral service, the hearse and the procession slowly passed her house on Dauphine on the way to the cemetery.
That afternoon and into the evening the house was filled with family and friends and kids underfoot, the backyard was jammed with tables and chairs, and the kitchen was filled with food.
