Speaker Will Weatherford called Ford the “consummate gentleman,” and talked about Ford’s love for his wife and his concern for people who are less fortunate. He also praised Ford for his courage in his fight against cancer. The House also played a slide show of photos of Ford.
“Clay Ford’s a member of our family and we’ll always remember him,” said Weatherford.
