WEST LAFAYETTE – A grateful Ford family thanked Habitat for Humanity, the community of volunteers and God during the groundbreaking ceremony for Habitat Home number 13 in Coshocton County.

The ceremony was held March 24, at the site of the new home in West Lafayette. This Veteran’s Build had the Coshocton County Veteran’s Color Guard presenting the colors in a moving tribute to U. S. Army veteran and father, Grant Ford. His family includes, wife Kathy and children Keirstan, Dawson and Braiden.

Mom Kathy said, “It’s amazing. A very huge, huge blessing from God.”

Grant said, “This is absolutely unbelievable. I’m 100 percent humbled. I always believe in doing for others, especially with veterans. I was happy to help another veteran build a home and then they called me. I’m just entirely grateful for this opportunity and blessing and to all veteran’s past and present.”
