About Mrs. Ford

A military honor guard carries the casket of former first lady Betty Ford. Ford was buried in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Thursday next to her husband, former President Gerald R. Ford.

Betty Ford has gone home to Grand Rapids, after years of failing health, years of asking those close to her, "When can I be with my boyfriend?"  She now is.  She has been laid to rest next to her partner, our former President.  Today I wanted to link to a depiction of the service -- and the remarks of the superb Richard Norton Smith, who perfectly captures this woman who was so perfect for her age.

We hope you can join us tonight.
