Blubbering like a baby in LA...
Yep....blubbering here as well. Mine started when Nancy leaned on the coffin one last time.
Grateful, and proud tears in North Carolina...even as I write this. Lord, Please give us another one like him...Amen.
It was very moving. I especially liked Michael Reagan's tribute to his father. In a time of anti-Christian sentiment, that was brave and the best thing a father could give his son - how to go about eternal life. Clearly he loved his father. I wish his biological children could show the same adoration.
My heart went out to Nancy as she said her final goodybye. It was breaking her heart all over again.
My thoughts are that a guy as smart as Clinton has to be thinking - he needs to have a private funeral.
Did real good during Amazing Grace and Taps...only to completely lose it when Nancy was saying her final goodbye.
I teared up when Nancy cried at the end. She held up so well today. What a difficult thing to mourn your spouse in front of the entire world.
Lost it at the beginning of Michael Reagan's tribute to his dad and continued through the rest of the ceremony...God bless you Mr.President and happy trails.
Of sorrow at his loss...but also joy in the knowledge of his current joy and salvation, and celebrating his life and its impact, including the great impact this day and the spirit of it is sure to have.
God's hand was surely in these events..
I did all right for a while, then when Amazing Grace started playing, I started to lose it.
When Nancy cried and said a clearly anguished "I love you" that was it! I was gone -- whole box of Kleenex at least.
What be good if for Nancy to speak at the Republican National Convention.
I signed the condolence book at the Ronald Reagan Library website. I already received a lovely reply. If you wish to do the same here is the link:
I'm glad that it's over. I'm at peace knowing how much the country loved that man.
When Margaret Thatcher took that final stately bow before her friend's casket, chills went up my spine. What a fine moment.
I've been crying all week, and for the life of me I can't figure out why. A good man who did wonders for the world is gone to his rest. That's not sad.
Crying too. Misty before but now a total down pour. And I have a business meeting in the morning ...
I was losing it when I circled the casket in Simi..I wanted to reach out and touch it, make one last final connection to the man who has taught me so much.
Gives us all great hope...including knowing what great faith he and his family and froends have...and that so many Americans recognized and shared it.
Only our Lord God could produce a TV show such as the one we just witnessed. It's most likely a life changing event.
