Services for Betty Ford to be held in California, Michigan

There will be two services for former first lady Betty Ford, a family representative said Saturday.

The first will be held on Tuesday in Palm Desert, California, while the second is scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he said. Among the eulogists scheduled to speak are Lynne Cheney and Rosalynn Carter, he said.

Ford, the widow of late President Gerald Ford and a co-founder of an eponymous addiction center in California, died Friday evening with family at her bedside. She was 93.

    Cheers to this woman. She has provided many who struggle through life with the proverbial monkey on their back with a process and place to seek health.

    She will be missed by all who knew her and benefited from her kindness.
