President Gerald Ford's funeral today
Our 38th President was laid to rest today. He passed away at the age of 93 on Dec. 23rd. He was president when I was only 12 years old. I remember he took over for President Nixon who resigned due to the Watergate scandal. He was never elected Vice President or President. He is the only President who never won election. He healed this country, although he wasn't much appreciated at the time. After he pardoned Nixon, his popularity fell and he did not win election in '76 against Jimmy Carter. Now he is considered a healer and a uniter for what he did.
