After seeing an article just this morning about Ronald Reagan’s son supporting some candidate, I immediately thought about Nancy Reagan. I wondered if she had passed and I somehow missed it. I was surprised to say the least when I looked on my computer just moments ago and found out that she died today. She was 94 years old. My condolences to the Reagan Family. “Mrs. Reagan will be buried At the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley California next to her husband, Ronald Wilson Reagan, who died June 5, 2004. Prior to the funeral services there will be an opportunity for members of the public to pay their respects at the library, according to Joanne Drake, her spokeswoman of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
Condolences from President Barack Obama and first lady Michele Obama:
Nancy Reagan once wrote that nothing could prepare you for living in the White House. She was right, of course. But we had a head start, because we were fortunate to benefit from her proud example, and her warm and generous advice. Our former First Lady redefined the role in her time here. Later, in her long goodbye with President Reagan, she became a voice on behalf of millions of families going through the depleting, aching reality of Alzheimer’s, and took on a new role, as advocate, on behalf of treatments that hold the potential and the promise to improve and save lives. We offer our sincere condolences to their children, Patti, Ron, and Michael, and to their grandchildren. And we remain grateful for Nancy Reagan’s life, thankful for her guidance, and prayerful that she and her beloved husband are together again.
