Letters from a president

letterregan

I’m not one to watch funeral services online, but today I listened to former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s.  How wonderful to hear about the handwritten letters that President Reagan wrote to her over the years.   Even better was to hear that she kept all the in a shopping bag in her closet.  I’m working on writing a book about letter writing and when I did a survey for family and friends, one of my questions was do you keep letters.  Do you keep them in a special place?

If you google Ronald Reagan letters you’ll see many from the former President.  He had a way of expressing himself that was simple, funny, and honest, yet caring and genuine.  May they both rest in peace.
