Final Public Farewell

I have been listening to Ronan Tynan sing Amazing Grace at the Reagan Funeral Service.

Here is the conclusion of Reagan's final farewell writing, from November 5, 1994, courtesy National Review:

In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for giving me the great honor of allowing me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that day may be, I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for its future.

I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead.

Thank you, my friends. May G[*]d always bless you.

No, Mr. President. Thank YOU.
