Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says Reid spoke softly but carried the “force of thunder." Reid served five terms in the Senate and rose to be majority leader. Reid died last month at 82. He had pancreatic cancer.

Reid rose from poverty in a dusty Nevada mining town to deliver landmark legislation from the most powerful position in the Senate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Reid “made the world a better place."
