The United States mourns a president; Ronald Wilson Reagan died Saturday afternoon at his Southern California home after a long struggle with Alzheimer's. The late president's body was taken to a Santa Monica funeral home, where admirers gathered to remember him. President Reagan's body will be brought to Washington this week to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. NPR's Ina Jaffe reports.
