They Endured: “We are so much "one” that you are as vital to me as my own heart




–with one exception; you could never be replaced with a transplant.

Whatever I treasure and enjoy–this home, our ranch, the sight of the sea–all would be without meaning if I didn’t have you. I live in a permanent Christmas because God gave me you.”

Would that I find a love like Ronnie found in his Nancy.

Godspeed, Mrs. Reagan. You were truly unique, and one of the very best. I miss the both of you, now.

I have been blessed with such a wife and such a marriage. Sixteen years without a cross word between us. Only God can say why I deserved it.

In documentaries about President Reagan, it is fairly common for interviewees reminiscing about him to get teary-eyed. He made that much of an impression.

Nancy was as tough as nails, and in Reagan's later years she defended his legacy like a bulldog. You know damn well that there were hungry vultures eager to get something unflattering from his decline from Alzheimer's. They never did.

I was very much against Reagan in the 80's because of his support of Central American dictators. I thought Nancy was a joke, a phony Hollywood debutant. Now, I've undergone a political change and I realize that I missed a truly great American president. Now I see her as a classy lady. My bad, my loss.
