I watched as President Ford's body arrived in Washington on Friday and I watched the National funeral today. The ceremony, honor and tribute is most impressive, but I was focused on how much Mrs. Ford had to stand and walk. She is 88 and stood for very long periods of time during the scheduled events. I kept thinking that they should have a place for her to sit. She doesn't have to pay tribute to him; she already did for 58 years! My mother could not have done what Mrs. Ford did physically and she is only 81.
