Nancy and Ronald Reagan

I met then First Lady Nancy Reagan, with her husband, then President Ronald Reagan, at the White House on several occasions. But I particularly remember her passion for the Just Say No Campaign, which she had a vision for and implemented across our nation.  She did this for ‘all of America,’ and she did this selflessly.

Above is a letter that then First Lady Reagan sent to me.  I didn’t know Mrs. Reagan well, but I knew her well enough to say she was full of integrity for herself, full of love for her husband, and full of genuine care and concern — and a commitment to service — for her nation.  A love and respect, for all people.

A true class act, and the world will truly miss her.  She had the world — better.
