Former first lady Nancy Reagan has laid flowers at President Ronald Reagan's California grave to commemorate the eight anniversary of his death.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation released a photo Tuesday of Mrs. Reagan sitting in a chair at the memorial in Simi Valley.

Ronald Reagan died in 2004 after a 10-year battle with Alzheimer's disease. He is buried at the site of the presidential library that bears his name.

The Republican beat incumbent President Jimmy Carter in the 1980 election and served two terms.
