Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) issued the following statement after the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan:  

“Chip and I join the millions here, and around the world, mourning the passing of Nancy Reagan and honoring her service to our country.  PWL I will always remember the first Presidential Inauguration that I attended in 1981.  First Lady Nancy Reagan was so graceful and resplendent in red and to hear the optimistic vision that Nancy and Ronald Reagan ushered in that day to restore our shining city upon a hill was inspiring.   It was a great privilege decades later to have the honor of meeting her.

 “Today, Nancy and Ronald Reagan are together again and we celebrate their lives and the legacy they built together, from ending the Cold War and turning around the economy, to their strong anti-drug advocacy, and work to battle Alzheimer’s Disease, and so much more.  Nancy Reagan had a remarkable career in her own right as an actress, a mother and grandmother, an activist, First Lady of California, the President’s closest advisor, and The First Lady.  They were a team and the Reagan legacy is a joint legacy.   Nancy Reagan was able to establish and spread President Reagan’s legacy so well over these past decades and now it is upon those of us who so appreciate their vision and work to continue it in the 21st century.”
