Rep. Nancy Pelosi spoke at length about her friend and fellow congresswoman Feinstein at an event celebrating San Francisco Fleet Week Tuesday morning.
"She is carried in the hearts of so many people," said Pelosi. "When she was mayor for such a long time -- ten years -- after other people started to run for mayor following her term limit, little children were saying, 'Oh, can a man be a mayor of San Francisco?'"
Pelosi continued, "So she did this with great poise and purpose, coming into office in such a sad, sad, tragic way," referring to Feinstein taking the job. Feinstein later called the day of the assassinations "the darkest day of my life."
"This is a very generous and lovely person. The love she had for the City of San Francisco, for her state of California and for our country really was legendary," Pelosi said. "Not only was she a great, proud patriot and champion of national security, she launched the first Fleet Week in 1981."
San Francisco Fleet Week officials announced after Feinstein's passing that this year's Fleet Week would be dedicated to her memory and service. The Patriot Jet Team will be flying in the "Missing Person" formation during the weekend air shows to honor Feinstein.
