Ronald Reagan was a great president, but he was an even better husband.
The former first lady, Nancy Reagan passed away yesterday and both her and Ronald are finally together again. In the love letter written below, given to Nancy from Ronald on their 20th wedding anniversary, shows us a glimpse of the powerful love and connection the two shared.
Ronald and Nancy’s relationship was one that we all long for. One that is filled with continued and strengthening love, humor and connection.

My Darling Wife
This note is to warn you of a diabolical plot entered into by some of our so called friends — (ha!) calendar makers and even our own children. These and others would have you believe we’ve been married 20 years.
20 minutes maybe — but never 20 years. In the first place it is a known fact that a human cannot sustain the high level of happiness I feel for more than a few minutes — and my happiness keeps increasing.
I will confess to one puzzlement but I’m sure it is just some trick perpetrated by our friends — (Ha again!) I can’t remember ever being without you and I know I was born more than 20 mins ago.
Oh well — that isn’t important. The important thing is I don’t want to be without you for the next 20 years, or 40, or however many there are. I’ve gotten very used to being happy and I love you very much indeed.
Your Husband of 20 something or other.
Such an incredible letter:-)
