Thank You, Mrs. Ford
This past week our national family celebrated the life of Betty Ford, First Lady of President Gerald Ford.
It is somewhat difficult to believe that so many years have passed since she and President Ford retired to California.
During her brief time in the White House, Mrs. Ford's impact on social issues was nearly as profound of that of Eleanor Roosevelt and her post White House contributions to the welfare of our national family was as equally significant.
All of the eulogies have been spoken, tributes given and now Mrs. Ford rests beside her husband in Michigan.
I guess all that can be said now is thank you for making our national family better with the gift of your life.
