First Lady Nancy Reagan, Dead At 94

    Our loss today, is most certainly Heaven's gain, as First Lady Nancy Reagan has passed from this world, to finally be reunited with her "Ronnie" there.
From Fox News, this sad, breaking news:  

Nancy Reagan, the widow of President Ronald Reagan and passionately devoted keeper of his flame, died Sunday morning of congestive heart failure at 94, Fox News has confirmed.

Reagan died at her home in Los Angeles, a spokesperson from Reagan's office said. She's set to be buried at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, next to her husband. Prior to the funeral, there will be an opportunity for members of the public to pay their respects at the Library, the spokesperson said. Details had not yet been announced Sunday afternoon.

Reagan, whose husband died in 2004, had appeared frail after suffering several falls in recent years. In May 2012 it was disclosed she had broken several ribs in a fall at her Los Angeles home six weeks earlier.

Although she initially worked as an actress, the former first lady was, first and foremost, Mrs. Ronald Reagan.

"My life really began when I married my husband," Nancy Reagan once said and for 52 years of marriage they were a fiercely close and devoted couple.

"Thank God we found each other," she said in a 1998 interview. "Can't imagine life without him."

Nancy Davis Reagan was born July 6, 1921 in New York City as Anne Frances Robbins.

R.I.P., Nancy. I'm sure she's happy to see Ron fully restored.
