House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer speaks about his final phone conversation with Representative John Lewis the week before his died. The conversation was initiated after Representative Lewis asked his long-time chief of staff, Michael Collins, to call the Maryland Democrat. "His was a weak voice, but a strong conviction evidencing the courage he displayed throughout his life. Of course, I cried because I knew it was probably the last time that I would talk to John," Leader Hoyer says. He also goes on to pay tribute to Mr. Collins and thank him for his years of loyal service to Representative Lewis and for making the call between the two possible. "And I am so thankful that Michael Collins that he got me on the phone, so that I could say goodbye to my dear, dear friend. And it was a dear, dear friend Michael Collins who got him on the phone from Atlanta with me." close
