Governor Bob Riley has proclaimed Friday a "Day of Remembrance" in Alabama for former President Ronald Reagan.
President Reagan died Saturday, but Riley says state offices will remain open Friday, on the national day of mourning for Reagan. Federal offices and major financial markets will be closed Friday.
Riley says Reagan was one of America's greatest presidents. The Governor says he and First Lady Patsy Riley will attend the funeral service for Reagan Friday in Washington, D.C. Riley says flags on state office buildings will continue to fly at half-staff through the national period of mourning for Reagan, which will end on July fifth.
