A major part of the 40th President, Ronald Reagan was said to be his very trusting wife Nancy Reagan, who died on Sunday, March 6th 2016.
The cause of her death was due to her consecutive heart failures she had been encountering over the time.
Nancy Reagan was very protective guardian to her husband’s image, even at the expense of hers.
A close friend of the Reagan’s said “Without Nancy, there would have been no Governor Reagan, no President Reagan”
President Obama said on Sunday that Mrs. Reagan, “had redefined the role” of first lady, as Obama added, “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.”
She played many big rolls while in the White House with one being the war on substance abuse mainly with the younger generations.
A statement proving her love and devotion to her husband in her book “My Turn: The Memoirs of Nancy Reagan,” saying “He was all I had ever wanted in a man, and more” published in 1989.
Nancy Reagan will be buried next to her husband on Friday in southern California.
