This makes for a sad Saturday morning when you have to hear these words…
“How do you say goodbye to the finest young man anybody has ever known?”
That is the question the Rev. Leo O’Donovan asked as he led the Saturday morning funeral service for Vice President Joe Biden’s eldest son, Beau, who died at the age of 46 following a battle with brain cancer.
Biden, wife Jill and their relatives gathered along with 1,000 others at St. Anthony of Padua in Wilmington, Delaware, to lay to rest a man President Obama eulogized as “a consummate public servant. Beau Biden brought to his work a mighty hearty, he brought to his family a mighty heart.”
