In Memoriam

Dr. Charles Wesley Ford, Jr

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Educator, Humanitarian

Over the years, many of you purchased a copy of my book, L is for Liberia: An Alphabet Book (2013). Before Charles left for Liberia in 2019, he left a manuscript of a companion activity book to L is for Liberia for me to complete and publish. I completed the book hours before he passed away in Liberia on June 19, 2021. I had a surprise for him, but his surprise for me has left me with a broken heart.

For months after Charles passed, I could not bring myself to revise the book. Thank God for strength, I have finally updated the book and dedicated it to Charles. It was released in April 2022.

A precentage from the proceeds of L is for Liberia: An Activity Book (2022) will help fund the Ford Morais Scholarship for deserving students at Cuttington University and St. Teresa’s Convent High School in Liberia.
