Wreath laying ceremony

Image: As part of a long-standing tradition, the President of the United States sends a wreath to the tomb of each deceased president on that president's birthday.  Mrs. Ford and the Ford Family also chose to send personal wreaths to President Ford's Tomb.  The ceremony for the laying of the three wreaths was developed by Mrs. Ford and the family, and is now an annual tradition conducted by the family each July 14.
