Welcome Eleanor Clay Ford (Mrs. Edsel Ford)




"It's my name on the building. There are no crown princes at Ford." --Edsel Ford

Good Mourning Widows.

Joy to you and me.

Today we honor and welcome famous widow Eleanor Clay Ford wife of famous automobile engineer Edsel Ford into our joy-ous club.

That's right widows. The club what nobody wants to joy-n. Ever.

Price of Admission: 1 Husband -- YOURS!

Edsel was only son of industrious auto maker Henry Ford.

Eleanor was niece of department store owner J. L. Hudson.

They married on November 1, 1916.

Eleanor Clay Ford became a widow on May 26, 1943. Edsel was 49 years old.

She lived until 1976, dedicating her life to the arts and charities.

MOURNING JOY:

Q: How does a king open a door?

A: With a monarchy.

MOURNING QUOTE:

"Strangers are just family you have yet to know." --Mitch Albom

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Write something.

Open your JOY-nal and fill one page with thoughts of strangers waiting to become a member of your family.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have an abundantly joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
