Even though Obama will miss the memorial service for Nancy Reagan, “Michelle Obama will be at the former first lady’s funeral, which will be held at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.”

In a recent article on Nancy Reagan’s passing, both Obama and his wife Michelle expressed their condolences saying:

“We remain grateful for Nancy Reagan’s life, thankful for her guidance, and prayerful that she and her beloved husband are together again” 

According to NBC News, “This isn’t the first notable funeral in recent weeks that Obama has missed: Last month, Obama skipped Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, choosing to paying his respects the day before while Scalia’s body lay in repose. Vice President Joe Biden was at the funeral itself.”
