Remembering Nancy Reagan

"Nancy Davis Reagan has led a remarkable life – as an adoring daughter, a loving mother, a devoted and sensitive partner, and a worthy ambassador for our country as First Lady. I have seen her cope bravely with life’s most difficult challenges, exuding grace and dignity and strength. I am so proud of this woman…I can’t imagine life without her."—Ronald Reagan, 1994

On Monday, President Obama ordered flags to half-staff in honor of the former First Lady, Nancy Reagan. She died Sunday at her home in Los Angeles and will be laid to rest Friday next to her husband at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
