At a time of national concern and disappointment, President Ford answered the call of duty and in doing so, set the standard for decency, honor and leadership.  He had quiet, reassuring strength at a time when America needed it most and made it his promise to restore honor to the presidency.

President Ford was by nature an all-American, family man, who will be remembered by his integrity, courage, and his devotion to this country.  We celebrate his life as we mourn this loss with his family.
