    Mrs. Ford was a breath of fresh air. Her candor in facing cancer and drug and alcohol dependency broke down huge barriers. A truly courageous person.

    Rest in peace, Betty.

    I needed a drink after I heard this. j/k

    Betty Ford and her husband were very honorable people deserving of a lot of respect.

    I just saw a piece on this on NBC Today; she seemed like a very modern and independent woman. In my mind, she epitomized one facet of the modern 1970's woman.

    She was really pretty awesome, more from the work she has done since the Fords left the White House. Much dignity, guts and courage. She will be missed.
