He certainly made a splash when he appeared on the scene. Clad in a fatigue jacket and American flag draped on his head, he definitely stood out amid the sea of somber faces and mourners dressed in black.

But still, actor Mr. T came to pay his respects to former first lady Nancy Reagan at her funeral Friday in Simi Valley, Calif.

The two apparently became good friends when she worked with the A Team star to work on her famous “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign in 1983.

Mr. T tweeted out a series of remembrances Monday after news of her death broke:

That was the highlight of my career to be asked to work with the First Lady on such a great cause. It wasn’t political because … I am not a Republican nor am I a Democrat. … But I am just a Christian Brother from the Hood trying to do some good! I will truly miss First Lady Nancy Reagan. … I will Never Forget her.
