Nancy Reagan, widow of former President Ronald Reagan, is mourning the death of her “dear friend,” William F. Buckley.

"I was deeply saddened this morning when I learned of Bill Buckley’s death," Reagan told Newsmax, through her assistant Wren Powell.

"He and his wife Pat were dear friends of ours for a long long time. Ronnie valued Bill’s counsel throughout his political life and after Ronnie died, Bill and Pat were there for me in so many ways.

"Bill Buckley’s devotion to this country was evident in everything he wrote. My love and deepest sympathy go out to his son, Chris, and the entire Buckley family."
