Because of my father, we are that Shining City on a Hill.
Dad sometimes patted me on the knee and called me his Little Schmuck.
Dad was the only adult male I ever trusted.
I had never said, 'dad, I love you.'
I think he would have been proud and smiling... when we laid him to rest because his family was together. I think that was a great gift to be able to give Dad at the end.
You know my father as governor, as president, but I knew him as dad. I was so proud to have the Reagan name and to be Ronald Reagan's son.
