Family Honors Reagan in Poignant Ceremony

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - At a sunset
hilltop ceremony, a week of public mourning for Ronald Reagan came to a
close with his three surviving children poignantly remembering their father
— the 40th president of the United States — as loving and dedicated.
President Ronald Reagan passed away yesterday, Saturday, June 5, 2004 in
Los Angeles at the age of 93.
He was a man who loved his country, a man without guile who exuded optimism and was beloved of millions.
As Joe Madagan (’57) of FL said, “President Reagan was a serious man, but did not take himself seriously.
His strength was using humor to describe world events and the human condition.
This polite gentleman wrote in his yearbook at graduation,
‘Life is like a melody. Let the music begin’...this is not an accurate quote, but reveals his vision and optimism.”
Thanks, Joe. I appreciate your words.

As did so
many of you today, I watched the televised coverage of Ronald Reagan’s
funeral with awe in my heart and tears on my cheeks.
I love television. I’ve always loved television. I vividly remember watching the coronation
of Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953. I was almost six years old, and it remains with me
even after 51 years. I deeply appreciate the blessing that television affords us of being right
there for something of this importance, even when we’re separated by hundreds and perhaps
thousands of miles. We live in remarkable times.

Thanks for your note...having just concluded watching for the entire day, it
was indeed moving...I cannot help but

I was visiting
my sister in PA and watched the Reagan funeral "doings" and was so
mesmerized by the procession to the Rotunda!
