Ex-First Lady Betty Ford, who died Friday at age 93,  had fans in the Secret Service.

Ex-Secret Service agent Mike Shannon, who protected the Fords, and showed up Saturday at the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids to pay respect, told WOOD-TV that Betty Ford was like “a mother” to him and other agents.

He told the station that Ford was always concerned about the agents and once gave him a bag of oranges to take home for his wife.

Gerald and Betty got married on Oct. 15, 1948 at the Grace Episcopal Church in Grand Rapids.
