death of a President

Gerald Ford, the president who took the oath at an "hour of history that troubles our minds and hurts our hearts," has died. His wife Betty read a statement by the family yesterday. Mr. Ford was not the president when I was born, but he's the first president I remember (although barely, since I was five-and-a-half years old when he left office).

His White House biography can be found here.
