MS leaders mourn the loss of Nancy Reagan

JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

America is mourning the loss of former first lady Nancy Reagan. She died of congestive heart failure at her home in California on Sunday. Reagan was 94.

Gov. Phil Bryant and Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef both released statements on the passing.

"America lost a great lady. Nancy Reagan was the perfect example of charm and caring that embodies the term 'First Lady.' Nancy and Ronald Reagan were an American love story that has never ended. The President would be the first to say his success was because of Nancy. I understand that sentiment in a very personal way. Deborah and I are children of the Reagan Revolution and realize it may have never happened without the gentle spirit and devotion of Nancy. She now is, once again, with her beloved Ronnie. I am sure they are walking the streets of Glory, hand in hand," said Bryant.

"Our country has lost one of its finest in the passing of Nancy Reagan. She was the epitome of grace and dignity, and embodied a sense of poise and strength as First Lady of the United States. Mrs. Reagan will always be remembered for her service to our country, and her loyal devotion to her husband and our President. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Reagan family," said Nosef.

Reagan will be buried alongside her husband at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Funeral arrangements are still being finalized.
