In the midst of Grand Rapids celebrating the life and service of former first lady Betty Ford ... local families are grieving the loss of their loved ones in a mass murder that happened on the city's northeast side last week.
Funerals for three victims were quietly held yesterday -- four others will be laid to rest tomorrow.
Thousands spent the evening waiting in silence outside The Ford Museum downtown Grand Rapids last night to pay his or her final respects for first lady Betty Ford.
Earlier in the day, her casket arrived at the museum via motorcade from the G.R. Ford International Airport. A prayer service was held followed by remarks from Governor Snyder who shared a few remarks about her mighty legacy of service to her family, friends and country.
Who would've thought that celebrities are eating baby food to keep their weight down?
I admit that I've gotten a couple of stares at the grocery store when I occasionally pick up a jar or two of either prunes or apricot baby food. For whatever reason, I have always liked the flavor and texture of the stuff ... weird, for sure, but a baby food diet?
Hair feathers! Musician and American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, is vocalizing his appreciation of former first lady Betty Ford.
According to Blabbermouth.net, Steven paid tribute to Mrs. Ford by saying, "Betty Ford took a risk at one of the worst times of her life and came forward to share a message of recovery in order to serve others," said Tyler. "Her vision, passion and amazing heart led to the Betty Ford Center, the gold standard of treatment facilities. She will be missed, but her work in recovery will live on."

Another advantage involves the romantic side of life and this weekend was a prime example of how wonderful it is to live in such a beautiful part of the country!
