On Jan. 8, Nevada mourned the loss of former Senator and former Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, at a memorial service.
Family and friends gathered at his service to speak of him and how he impacted their lives. His family mentioned his acts of kindness towards other people and his own family.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Son Leif Reid recalled how his father would always write members of the family notes of encouragement,” Sun staff said.
He was a very well-respected member of the Congress and anyone who went, that was or is a part of the Congress now, had very nice things to say about him. The former and current presidents, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, went to the service to pay their respect.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “There will be a eulogy by former President Barack Obama. President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will speak,” staff said.
Harry Reid was a very important figure in helping develop or pass certain acts or achievements that were accomplished.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Reid played a critical role in passing other landmark legislation, including the Dodd-Frank Act for Wall Street reform and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to help the country bounce back from the Great Recession,” staff said.
People from all over Nevada have said nice things about him. These people are posting thank you messages and celebrating his life with moments of silence.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Tributes have poured in since his death, from marquees with video tributes on the Strip to flags lowered in his home state to moments of silence at sporting events,” staff said.
