ford’s funeral

Ford hearse detailMy morning ride was delayed by the passing of President Ford’s funeral motorcade. I felt compelled to watch the motorcade, as state funerals are always moving events – regardless of how you felt about the person being honored, these events are special and rare, and you feel for the grieving family and friends.

And to use a quote from President Ford: it’s ironic that, even though he said he was “a Ford, not a Lincoln,” it’s ironic to see him being driven to National Cathedral in a Cadillac.

I managed to snap a few photos of the motorcade – click here to see the whole set.

Rest in peace, President Ford.
