Nancy Reagan placed a bouquet of white roses on the gravesite of her late husband Ronald Reagan Tuesday to mark the eighth anniversary of the passing of one of America’s most beloved presidents.
Appearing frail in a red coat, the former first lady then sat by the 40th president’s gravesite at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.
Now 90, Nancy Reagan recently suffered broken ribs in a fall, and was reported to be recovering slowly.
The widow of President Reagan also made news recently by announcing her endorsement of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Having served lemonade and cookies to Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, at her Los Angeles home, she said that she is firmly behind the former Massachusetts governor.
She said that Romney has the experience and leadership skills that, in her words, "our country so desperately needs."
Reagan added that her "Ronnie" would have liked Romney's business background and what she calls his "strong principles."
