In addition to Buck Fawcett passing away earlier this year, Mildred Rosenbaum passed away Thursday Oct. 12th.

Those fortunate enough to have attended the FLLWBC 2003 conference, and visit the Fawcett house got to meet Buck and the supervising apprentice Bob Beharka.

I visited Bob over the wekend, and we drove out to the farm, where all the Fawcett farm equipment was being auctioned off. The family kept the house and 80 acres and sold off the rest.

Saddened to hear of Mildred Rosenbaum's passing. I urged my parents to see her home when they were in Alabama several years ago. She was still living in it and welcomed them warmly and treated them as one might family or close friends. I was grateful. "USONIA - FLlW's Design for America", written by her son, is a fascinating read.
