FILE - Pope John Paul II talks to Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, as Raisa looks on, during a private visit to the Vatican City, Sunday, Nov. 18, 1990. When Mikhail Gorbachev is buried Saturday at Moscow’s Novodevichy Cemetery, he will once again be next to his wife, Raisa, with whom he shared the world stage in a visibly close and loving marriage that was unprecedented for a Soviet leader. Gorbachev’s very public devotion to his family broke the stuffy mold of previous Soviet leaders, just as his openness to political reform did. (AP Photo/Gianni Foggia, File)
