In memory of a great lady…

Mar 7, 2016

Nancy Reagan will be missed.

Not only was she a strong, classy first lady, an advocate against drugs in school, and a devoted wife and mother, but she was also part of a special true-life love story that left an indelible mark on my heart.

The book, I LOVE YOU, RONNIE, is a beautiful collection of letters that offers a glimpse into the undeniable romance between Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

An excerpt from I LOVE YOU, RONNIE:

Feb. 14,1977

Dear St. Valentine,

I’m writing to you about a beautiful young lady who has been in this household for 25 years now – come March 4.

I have a request to make of you but before doing so feel you should know more about her. For one thing she has 2 hearts – her own and mine. I’m not complaining. I gave her mine willingly, and like it right where it is. Her name is Nancy but for some time now I’ve called her Mommie and don’t believe I could change.

My request of you is – could you on this day whisper in her ear that someone loves her very much and more and more each day? Also tell her, this “Someone” would run down like a dollar clock without her so she must always stay where she is.

Then tell her if she wants to know who that “Someone” is to just turn her head to the left. I’ll be across the room waiting to see if you told her. If you’ll do this for me, I’ll be very happy knowing that she knows I love her with all my heart.

Thank you,
