They're Folkdancing in Heaven

Benjamin Wren was and continues to be a tremendous influence on the lives of Dr. Mrs. Clio and me.

He gave us a world class education in world civilization, Zen, and humanity.

He celebrated our wedding and baptized our first child.

When he was in his 60s, he discerned a change in vocation, a call to be married.

His wife, Pat, must miss him, as do we all.

I am very sorry to hear about his death. Rev. Wren officiated my marriage ceremony in 2000.

My Episcopal grandmother was a big fan of Wren, I think meeting him through the All Saints Church in Harahan. She gave me a copy of his book, "Zen Among the Magnolias," shortly before she died. I lost the book in the storm.

He was definitely a unique and admirable character.
