Nancy Reagan watched on as flowers were placed on top of the president’s headstone at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. The former First Lady has visited Reagan’s grave every year on the anniversary of his 2004 death. Though she normally visits the grave privately, reporters were invited for the 10th anniversary of his passing.
Regan paid her respects at the headstone from a wheelchair. The 92-year-old widow has been in poor health for the last few years. In 2012, she broke ribs in an injurious fall.
Reagan passed away on June 5, 2004 after a 10-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Reagan, who defeated Jimmy Carter for the presidency in 1980 and went on to serve two terms, began to suffer from the disease during the end of his second term.
