(Bebeto Matthews/ASSOCIATED PRESS Photo)  ‘It is really hard for me to believe that Ronnie has been gone for 10 years,’ Nancy Reagan said of her late husband, pictured in 1991.

Nancy Reagan laid a wreath at her husband’s grave site, yesterday on Thursday 06.05.14, the 10th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s death.   Nancy Reagan lays a wreath every year, but this year marks the first time she allowed media to attend since his funeral.

‘I still feel his presence and … find him in my dreams’ ‘It is really hard for me to believe that Ronnie has been gone for 10 years,’ the former First Lady said in a statement about her husband, the 40th U.S. President, who died June 5, 2004, at age 93.

The former First Lady admitted she “can’t argue” with those who want another Reagan in Washington.

“Many people have told me how much they wish we could have ‘another Ronald Reagan’ back in Washington, and I can’t argue their logic, but for me there will be only the one Ronald Reagan, a man that was both the love of my life and one of the greatest leaders this country has ever produced,” she added.

Former Ronald Reagan administration officials including  speechwriter Peggy Noonan and  ex-Chief of Staff James Baker gathered at the Reagan Library on Thursday to commemorate the ex-President’s death.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
