Left at 9 A.M. for Phoenix on our sad journey. Upon arrival we went direct to the mortuary. We saw Deedee looking calm & peaceful in her red robe. This was too much for Nancy who broke down sobbing & telling her how much she loved her. I told her Deedee knows that now & that she really wasn’t in that room with her body but would be closer to her when we get to her apartment where her long time friends were awaiting us.

And they were John Chauncy, Mich Wood, Vick Zepp & the Dr.

After a couple of hours I had to get back to the airport but by that time Nancy was in a better state of mind hearing all of us talk about Deedee & our love for her. At 2:30 I left them & got back to Wash. & the W.H. about 9 P.M. Tomorrow I go to West Point & Fri. after a meeting with Shevardnadze I go back to Phoenix. Sat. will be the service & then we’ll come back here Sun. A.M. I should have written that at 8:30 this morning I was in a Conf. call. The Soviets blinked. Shevardnadze speaking for Gorbachev is arriving Thurs. for meetings on I.N.F. and plans for the summit.
