RIP, Betty Ford.
Always liked her. RIP.
RIP. 93...nice long life. She left her mark in this world, and it was a positive one.
It's a sad day. May she RIP.

She was one classy lady. Handling her addictions in such a public manner. A life well lived
DH - and that's just my opinion
Always loved her. A wonderful lady with a sense of humor, too. She will be greatly missed.
Truly saddened to hear of her passing. A brave and inspiring woman who was easily decades ahead of her time in so many ways. Her legacy of using her own life experience to help others will thankfully continue to live on.
Betty Ford was one of the finer First Ladies of the US in the latter half of the 20th Century (too bad her husband was such a boob ).
She lived to a wonderful 93 years of age and created a lasting legacy with her openness about addictions and was IMO at the forefront of putting drug rehabilitation on the map of public society and diminishing the shame with which it was previously associated.
Condolences to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren…..May she RIP.

She also was very forthright about her bout with breast cancer, and again this did a great deal to show people that it could happen to anyone and that it could be confronted.
Stale pastry is hollow succour to a man who is bereft of ostrich. - Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory
RIP. She seemed like a really nice lady.
She was a wonderful First Lady and a all around classy woman. RIP Betty.
