40th President. Autograph letter signed (ALS) “God Bless You – Ron“, front and back of 6.25×4.25 card with gold gilt Presidential seal and Ronald Reagan imprint, to Mr. and Mrs. Paul Ballachina, August 1, 1991, in full:
Dear Delores, It was good – (as always) – to hear from you and both Nancy & I share your sorrow – both of us having lost our Mothers, yes we’ll say a prayer for you with regard to your health and thank you for your prayer about Patti. We are trying to bring her around. She had a period in those roaring ’60s when you [she] got in bad company.
Let me just offer some about your mother and your sorrow. We must all remember God’s promise. Our Mothers are in a place where there is no pain or sorrow and where we shall all be together again one day for ever more.
Accompanied by original envelope with printed free frank.
