In celebrating Reverend Ford's birthday today, his wonderful spirit is never far away.
Grandpa...this is pain is unbearable. To cross into another year and you aren’t here for us to call and here the way you say, “Hello. This is Willie James Ford Sr.” Even though youre not physically here, I know everywhere I go, you’re with me. I love you and miss you. Happy New Year Grandpa! 👴🏾 ❤️😇
Pastor Ford opened his doors to me and my colleagues at the City of Deerfield Beach several years ago. He showed us that even when we don't agree on everything we can still listen to each other, share ideas, and connect with each other. Because at the end of the day we are all God's children. We became friends and I will never forget his infectious smile. This City will miss Pastor Ford! To Mrs. Ford, Demetric, and the rest of the family you remain in our prayers. God bless you all!
As I reflect on the life of Rev. Ford, I too am impressed. He was a devoted man of God. There were many things that were spoken of during the service that confirmed that one man of God can do wonders by themselves because it is that person that understands that God walks with them. I will continue to pray strength and comfort for the Ford and the Bethlehem Family.
There aren't sufficient words I can utter to comfort you during your loss. I believe the presence of God’s love, peace and security will overwhelm and continuously keep you.
My heartfelt and deepest sympathy to The Ford Family.
Love always Lorraine C. (Hanna) Wilder

Wow! So many wonderful memories! With each memory the spirit of "greatness " is attached. Many years ago as a young girl growing up, I witnessed that greatness in different ways. i saw you as:
- A great TV repairman in our home
- A great Scoutmaster with my brother
- A great Sunday School Teacher at church
- A great Pastor called by GOD
- A great Role Model (As for me & my house we will serve The LORD)
You fought a good fight & kept the faith. You taught by example. You gave me biblical insights & assurance when I needed it the most. I am so thankful for the great legacy you have left behind. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also, to the family, much love & many prayers go out to you! We are here for you! Blessings!
