Ford classmate expresses sympathy PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I have just learned of the death of Glenn Ford. I would like to take this means of expressing to his family and his many friends my deepest sympathy.
Glenn and I were both members of the class of 1945 in Madrid, Neb. We also graduated from the University of Nebraska the same year (1951) with the same major.
Although our contacts since those days have been limited (class reunions, etc.) my high regard for Glenn has never wavered. I have rarely met a person who knew his own mind or his place in the world better than Glenn. He was quick to detect pretense and other forms of fraud.
If you decide to print this letter I would be most grateful. He was a good friend and he will be missed.
