Services for Betty Ford were held today in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The late First Lady was eulogized by her son Stephen Ford, presidential historian and biographer Richard Norton Smith, and Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Dick Cheney was President Gerald Ford's chief of staff.
Former first lady Barbara Bush and former president Bill Clinton also attended the service.
Her body lay in repose through the morning at the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Michigan, before mourners gathered to memorialize her one last time this afternoon.
After today’s memorial, Ford will be buried alongside her husband at Gerald Ford's presidential museum in Grand Rapids. Today would have been his 98th birthday.
Rosalynn Carter was one of two eulogists at a California funeral service earlier this week- she spoke of how Ford stood up to fear, stigma and prejudice. “She was never afraid to speak the truth, including about her own struggle with alcohol and pain killers...her honesty gave help to others every day.”
Ford, who co-founded the Betty Ford center in Rancho Mirage, California, in 1982 after suffering from cancer and addiction problems herself, died last Friday at the nearby Eisenhower Medical Center.
President Obama led tributes to her over the weekend, praising her “courage and compassion” for speaking openly about her fight with breast cancer and drug and alcohol addiction.
