Governor Pat McCrory ordered all United States and North Carolina flags to be immediately lowered to half-staff on all state facilities in honor of former First Lady Nancy Reagan. Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of her interment.
“Nancy Reagan was an uncommon combination of strength, grace and devotion,” Governor McCrory said. “Many of us, including myself, were inspired into public service by the words and deeds of President Ronald Reagan. And he drew much of his inspiration from his beloved wife, Nancy. It is a sad day for our nation. Ann and I ask North Carolinians around the state to keep the Reagan family in their thoughts and prayers during this time.”
