LOS ANGELES (AP) – Nancy Reagan, the helpmate, backstage adviser and fierce protector of Ronald Reagan in his journey from actor to president – and finally during his 10-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease – has died. She was 94.
I got to see Mrs. Reagan when I was in High School while at a conference in Atlanta. That was a big thrill for me to see her as a teenager. The former FLOTUS was a interesting person who made waves herself as first lady. No matter your political position this is a sad day.
