It has always been known that Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford were two former presidents of the United States that were bound by true friendship. Gerald Ford was the 38th president while Jimmy Carter was the 39th president of the United States of America. Both have a lot in common, they both served in the U.S. Navy, had three sons and a daughter, have a beautiful wife and of course both became president of the most powerful country in the world.

When Gerald Ford died last December 26, 2006 because of a heart failure, Jimmy Carter was asked to make a remark on the funeral of his friend, his predecessor and his brother in Christ. Yes, they are brothers in Christ because both are real believers of Christian faith and both lived their lives with fear of God.

During Former President Jimmy Carterís eulogy speech, he talked about his relationship with Gerald Ford during and after his terms of office in the white house. Since Jimmy Carter was preceded by President Gerald Ford, he still made it a point to inform him of what he was doing as President. They are opponents in title but they are real friends at heart. They both aim for one thing and that is to be of service to America. They are opponents for the presidency but they supported each other and not put down the other for ones benefit. That in itself is worth applauding.

Carter pointed out that as president, Gerald Ford would give him really sound advices. The former president Gerald Ford would support him irregardless of what his political partyís opinion was. Gerald Ford has helped him during his presidency as a good adviser.

Jimmy Carterís and Gerald Fordís wives are good friends as well as stated by Mr. Jimmy Carter during the eulogy. Both women loved each other and have built a strong friendship in them as well. The Carterís and the Fordís have learned to love each other and the relationship was never shallow.

Jimmy Carterís eulogy to his good old friend Gerald Ford was heartfelt and filled with good humor. Here is a man talking about his friend whom he shared his victories and worries as a president and perhaps shared personal problems with as well. The eulogy did not sound political at all and that is because both are friends rather than as political opponents.
