In a statement, President Barack Obama reflects on the influential First Lady.
“Our former First Lady redefined the role in her time here,” he said. “Later, in her long goodbye with President Reagan, she became a voice on behalf of millions of families going through the depleting, aching reality of Alzheimer’s, and took on a new role, as advocate, on behalf of treatments that hold the potential and the promise to improve and save lives.
“We offer our sincere condolences to their children, Patti, Ron, and Michael, and to their grandchildren. ”
