“Beau Biden brought to his work a mighty heart. He brought to his family a mighty heart," President Obama said.
Mourners filled the aisles as President Obama paid tribute to Beau Biden — eldest son of Vice President Joe Biden — who died at 46 of brain cancer.
“He was not above dancing in a sombrero and shorts at Thanksgiving dinner that would shake loose a laugh from the people he loved. And through it all, he was the consummate public servant. A notebook in his back pocket at all times so he could write down the problems of everyone he met and go back to the office to get them fixed,” President Obama said.
