John Lewis, with whom she served in Congress for 33 years, and their last conversation the day before he died. He always worked on the side of the angels and now he is with them, Pelosi said. Pelosi will preside in the House later Monday morning during a moment of silence in Lewis' honor. For now, Pelosi said the congressional delegation from Georgia, under Rep. Sanford Bishop, will honor Lewis during the moment of silence and a bereavement resolution.
