LAFAYETTE - On April 28, 2014, Bennett Thomas Coleman passed away in Memphis, TN where he was being treated by the wonderful staff at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. He is survived by his parents, Ben and Megan Coleman, his brother, Davis and his sister, Reide. Together with his grandparents and extended family, they are celebrating that the cancer died and that Bennett is enjoying his new life in heaven with the Lord. His short 21 months here were filled with many smiles and laughter. He taught us all what true strength, faith and joy really are.

A Celebration Service of Bennett's life will be held Saturday, May 3 at 11am at The Bayou Church on 2234 Kaliste Saloom Road, Lafayette, LA.

The Coleman family will be in the foyer from 9-11am to receive guests. They ask that everyone wear blue in honor of Bennett. In lieu of flowers and gifts, they ask that donations be made to St. Jude in memory of Bennett.
