  1. Pam Ledford:

    It was a miracle, just a God thing, i was excited for them and for the baby, and it was so tearful it took your breath away. You could just watch them in awe of her.

  2. Mitch McConnell:

    In many ways the Reagan love story was classic Hollywood, but it was unmistakably human too. Hands intertwined, Nancy and Ron rose to the pinnacle of political power, weathered cancer and personal heartbreak, and braved the depths of Alzheimer's cold embrace -- always together. I know every American felt Nancy's immense pain when she, kissing Ronnie's casket, mouthed a tearful farewell to the best friend she once said she couldn't imagine life without.

  3. Ehsan Sehgal:

    To discuss spirituality and to be proficient in spirituality, are two different subjects. First, talks over that, and the second displays the source by itself. All can explore that, while all can be not that spirited source. The conversation can be a false matter, and based on deception, whereas, the spiritual figure's image is simply clear as a visionary mirror. Such ones adopt a way of fasting and patience, stay away from worldly affairs, and believe in God perfectly. They do not beg to the world and not sell their prayers. They remain the best supporter of all people and do not backbite, nor appreciate such conduct. They win the heart and mind of the people with their humility, tolerance, forgiveness, love, and sincerity in their tearful state of passion.
