Reagan dies at her home in Los Angeles, from congestive heart failure. The Reagan Library announces that she will be buried next to her husband in Simi Valley, CA.
Reagan reacts to the death of Rivers:
Joan Rivers was not only a dear friend, but one of the kindest and funniest people I ever knew. I doubt there’s anyone who hasn’t laughed at her or with her until they cried. Today our tears are those of sadness. I know I join millions in saying, “Thanks for the good times Joan, we will truly miss you. My love and deepest sympathy go to Melissa and Cooper.
