“I was privileged to know Nancy and Ronald Reagan for more than 50 years and greatly valued their friendship. I am saddened by the news of Nancy’s passing. She will be greatly missed, and I look forward to being reunited some day in the future in heaven.
“One of Nancy’s most wonderful qualities was her steadfast and loyal support for her husband. She was an extraordinary first lady.
“On behalf of our family and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, we extend our condolences to the Reagan family, and pray God’s continuing blessings on those Nancy has left behind.”
