Nancy Reagan’s children will speak at her funeral

Nancy Reagan’s two children, Patti Davis and Ronald Prescott Reagan, will speak at their mother’s funeral in Southern California on Friday.

The Ronald Reagan Foundation released details of the service set for 11 a.m. Pacific Time (2 p.m. EST) at the 40th president’s library in Simi Valley.

James A. Baker, who served in President Reagan’s administration, and former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw will also give remarks. The ceremony will be officiated by the Rev. Stuart Kenworthy, vicar of Washington National Cathedral.

A choir from Santa Susana High School in Simi Valley will sing “Amazing Grace.”

Friday’s funeral will be private but members of the public are welcome to pay their respects again Thursday as Nancy Reagan lies in repose at the library.

More than 3,000 people passed the casket Wednesday, the first day of the public viewing.
