Burr Statement on the Passing of Nancy Reagan

WASHINGTON – Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) made the following statement on the passing of former First Lady Nancy Davis Reagan:

“Today, Americans mourn the loss of the former First Lady, who represented the United States with utmost dignity. I am saddened to hear of her passing, but find solace that she will once again join her husband. Let us remember her great contributions to this country, such as her commitment to stem the AIDS virus and her advocacy for a drug free country. Nancy Reagan led her life as an example to others, and while today is a day for mourning, we are better for having had her influence on this nation.”
