Nancy Reagan at the state funeral.

How strange it must be to be Nancy Reagan today, after all these years out of the public eye, tending to the man who no longer even knew he had been the President. The tiny woman in a little black dress is standing at the arm of a carefully dressed, white-gloved soldier, surrounded by all the grand trappings of a state funeral. On the other side of the ropes are the regular Americans, huge crowds in sloppy shorts and T-shirts, pointing cameras at her and just shouting out, "We love you, Nancy!"
