Gerald Ford's First Funeral

The cable networks are carrying the late President Gerald Ford's first funeral service in Palm Desert, CA live. The Palm Desert Sun is live-blogging it.

Betty Ford looks so sad, yet dignified. It's very quiet in the church, not a peep from anyone. He's then going to be flown to Washington and then to Michigan for his burial.

R.I.P., Gerald Ford.

    It was supposed to be a reflection on his presidency.  He said his most poignant memory of being President was when Betty's was diagnosed with breast cancer.  He relayed the story with tears in his eyes, even though it was almost 20 years after it happened.  The audience was equally moved.
