Pelosi remembered her brother as someone dedicated to the family hometown of Baltimore, where their father served as mayor for 12 years.

"His life and leadership were a tribute to the Catholic values with which we were raised: faith, family, patriotism. He profoundly believed, as did our parents, that public service was a noble calling and that we all had a responsibility to help others," she said.

Devout Catholics, Pelosi said her brother is now with the angels.

"All his life, Tommy worked on the side of the angels. Now, he is with them."
