Former prime minister Brian Mulroney spoke at the funeral for Nancy Reagan, actress and former First Lady, who died of congestive heart failure last Sunday at the age of 94.

He was in office at the same time Ronald Reagan was president and and families became close.
He recalled how Reagan spoke so warmly about his wife in public so often that he once told Reagan he was making every other world leader look bad in front of their wives.
Reagan smiled and said, ”Well, Brian, that’s your problem.”
Mulroney also read the adoring letter Ronald wrote Nancy on their first Christmas in the White House in 1981.
He wrote how lucky he was to have many great women in his life, including a woman who cares for the sick and elderly, a fun woman to visit the ranch with and the sentimental one who’d laugh and cry.
”Fortunately,” Reagan wrote, ”all these women in my life are you.  Fortunately for me, that is, because there could be no life for me without you.”
Mulroney then closed by saying ”Theirs was a love for the ages … They had style and they had grace and they had class.”
Thousands of mourners had filed past Nancy Reagan’s casket the past two days at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Center for Public Affairs in Simi Valley, California.
She’s to be buried alongside her husband who died in 2004 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s at the age of 93.
