I was in a hotel lobby with my parents checking into a room
when then gov. Reagan walked up and stood in line behind us.
I had no idea who he was except that I had heard about him
on television. He had lived for a short time in our home
town and my mother recognized him and told him where we were
from. His face lit up and he asked us all about what had
changed there. Never acted as if he was any different from
us. A real class act. The fact that he just stood in line
with the rest of us says a lot.

I was in attendence in Feb 2004 when President Reagan made his announcement for re-election in Waterloo, IA. Part way through his speech a balloon fell out of the mash basket above the stage and floated down just to his right. Without skipping a beat he didn't even turn his head. He just reached out and hit the balloon into the audience and kept talking.

What a class act; we loved it.
