I remember that day. I remember the work I was doing, and listening to the radio and the coverage of President Reagan’s death.
I also remember a lot of the funeral events from that whole week, ending with the heartbreaking sight of Mrs.Reagan at the final service in CA, and her not wanting to leave the side of the casket.
My favorite President, and there will be no other to take his place in my heart.
What I remember about the funeral is that Lady Margaret Thatcher came, even with her failing health.
I remember her approaching the casket and curtseying, even though it was obviously painful for her to do so.
Spoke volumes about the relationship between the two.
My most memorable moment was Margaret Thatcher approaching the casket and then laying her hand upon the flag draped over it. You could see the sorrow she felt at his loss and great affection she held for him.
