COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Governor John Kasich released the following statement in reaction to the death of Nancy Reagan.
“President Reagan has been reunited with his wife and partner but America and the Reagan family have lost a woman of grace and strength. I join people from around the country and the world in sending them our best thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. A woman of strength and wit, Nancy Reagan’s dedication to our country was matched only by that of her husband. Theirs was one of our nation’s great love stories and a model of shared devotion to our country. America is stronger and better for their service.”
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine also issued a statement on the Reagan’s death:
“Fran and I were sad to learn that Nancy Reagan has died. Nancy Reagan used her position as First Lady to encourage our kids to just say no to drugs, which is a message that remains relevant today. Her love for President Reagan was steadfast, unconditional, and provided him with unfailing support. He said often said that his life began when he met Nancy. While we mourn her loss, and express our sympathy to her children and grandchildren, we take comfort that the Reagans are reunited in heaven.”
