Everyone is buzzing about the Betty Ford death. The former First Lady of the United States has passed away. Ford was the wife of President Gerald Ford our 38th President.
Betty Ford was 93 at the time of her death. Ford struggled with alcohol issues earlier in life and is probably most known for founding the Betty Ford Center near Palm Springs back in 1982.
This center is one of the most sought after facilities in the world and many stars have gone to this oasis seeking help.
Ford remained very popular with the Americans through her husband’s office term even though there was some opposition from the conservatives who did not like her more moderate and liberal positions on social issues.
Ford’s physician for the past 23 years, Dr. Alan Kiselstein was with the former first lady as she died Friday at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.
“She was alert and communicative right up to the end,” said Kiselstein, 67, a doctor of internal medicine.
Our condolences go out to the family.
