Social media reacts to sudden death of Nancy Reagan
Former First Lady Nancy Reagan died Sunday morning of congestive heart failure , and the nation mourned for the loss of a woman known as the closest adviser and most passionate supporter of her husband, former President Ronald Reagan.
 
Mourners stopped by the main entrance northwest of Los Angeles to pay their respects throughout the day, snapping photos and leaving flowers. Reagan is to be buried by her husband at his presidential library – which was closed Sunday after the news -- in Simi Valley, California, library spokeswoman Joanne Drake said in a statement.
 
 
 
And while you could feel the love in Simi Valley, a slew of support also erupted on social media from fellow politicians, celebrities and supporters.
First by stepson Michael Reagan, the former president’s biological son. He tweeted, “I am saddened by the passing of my step mother Nancy Reagan...She is once again with the man she loved.”
Politicians like Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio also voiced their support on Twitter.
 
Donald Trump chimed in with some kind words of his own, while Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to the beloved First Lady as “one of my heroes.”
