About a thousand people are invited to the private funeral ceremony, and it’s a broad mix of people from politics to show business.
Former President George W. Bush, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton are among those set to be on hand. Singer Wayne Newton is set to come, as is Tina Sinatra, the daughter of Frank Sinatra. And, even the actor known as “Mr. T,” who was a friend of Nancy Reagan is attending. House Speaker Paul Ryan wanted to come to pay his respects on Friday, but couldn’t, but he stopped by the Presidential Library in Simi Valley today to say farewell to the former First Lady.
