Mourning in America after death of President Reagan

WND-20-YearsJune 5, 2004: At the age of 93, Ronald Wilson Reagan, America’s 40th president and the nation’s longest-living ex-president, died.

One of the most beloved presidents in American history, Reagan passed away at his home in California.

Nancy Reagan told reporters the end was near when she said, poignantly, “This is it.”
