"President Ford was a man of quiet grace who took office at the right time.  I had the pleasure of meeting him for the first time about 10 years ago in Cheyenne where we attended a Boy Scout banquet.  As a  fellow Eagle Scout, we had a connection. President Ford was close to Wyoming .  He spent time in the state with his grandfather, and he also chose Dick Cheney to be his chief of staff.  We can learn from his calm demeanor and integrity.  Diana and I send our thoughts and prayers to Betty and the Ford family as well as our thanks for his service to our country."
