Two "quiet" tributes are underway to the late former House speaker Thomas S. Foley (D-Wash.), who died last week.

Following House tradition, the speaker's chair on the rostrum has been draped in black, while the gavel is resting on a black pillow. The black drape and pillowed gavel are removed when the House comes into session, but the tribute will continue until a memorial service is held in Foley's honor.

Outside the House chamber, Foley's official portrait hanging in the Speaker's Lobby has been draped in black and will remain so for the same period of time.

The office of Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) announced what it called the customary and "quiet" tributes to Foley on Tuesday and provided the photos seen here.

Foley, 84, died last week at his home in Washington of complications from strokes.
