Rest In Peace, President Ford

I was saddened to hear that President Ford passed away.

His long list of accomplishments and honors during his 93-years will be well-chronicled elsewhere.

Mr. Ford holds special significance to me, in that he is the first presidential candidate I ever voted for. He lost that election to young Jimmy Carter but that set a precedent for my voting record.

Thirty years later, I have only ever voted for a single candidate who was elected Presdient of this great nation.

This country certainly could use leaders of Mr. Ford's strength, character and integrity today...
