December 27, 2006

Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, expressed sympathy upon learning of the death of former President Gerald R. Ford:

“It was with sorrow that I learned of the death of former President Gerald Ford. As we mourn his passing, we recall his dignified service to our nation as a member of Congress, Vice President and then President of the United States, service which came at a particularly difficult time in our nation’s history.

“My prayers are with his family. I also pray for the repose of his soul. May God grant him eternal rest.”
