Photo gallery: Friends, family say final farewells to Nancy Reagan
SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Close friends and family remembered Nancy Reagan as more than a first lady Friday, recalling at her funeral service how she and husband Ronald Reagan made up "two halves of a circle," with a love for one another that inspired everyone they crossed paths with.
Inseparable in life, the pair were to be reunited in death in side-by-side graves at the Reagan's presidential library.
The guest list for the funeral tells a story about their lives, which stretched from Hollywood's Golden Age to the California statehouse during Reagan's time as governor to Washington.
Among those in the front row were first lady Michelle Obama, who was seated next to former President George W. Bush. Hillary Clinton sat next to Bush's wife, Laura.
