Nancy Davis Reagan
Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement regarding the passing of Nancy Davis Reagan:
“Elaine and I join the nation in mourning the loss of Nancy Reagan. In many ways the Reagan love story was classic Hollywood, but it was unmistakably human too. Hands intertwined, Nancy and Ron rose to the pinnacle of political power, weathered cancer and personal heartbreak, and braved the depths of Alzheimer's cold embrace -- always together. I know every American felt Nancy's immense pain when she, kissing Ronnie's casket, mouthed a tearful farewell to the best friend she once said she couldn't imagine life without.
“Today, Nancy and Ron are together once more, and we offer our most sincere condolences to the friends and family left behind."
