Joe Biden visits Beau’s grave on the anniversary of his death

President Biden took time out of his Memorial Day schedule Monday to visit the grave of his late son Beau Biden in a church cemetery in Delaware on the seventh anniversary of his death.​

Biden, accompanied by First Lady Jill Biden, carried flowers as the couple approached Saint Joseph’s gravesite at Brandywine Catholic Church in Wilmington.​

Other family members who visited Beau’s final resting place were the president’s grandchildren and his sister Valerie Biden Owens.

The family paid their respects after attending morning mass at the church.

Beau Biden, an Iraq War veteran and former Delaware Attorney General, died on May 30, 2015 of brain cancer.

He was 46.

The President frequently refers to his late son in speeches, usually either to highlight Beau’s military service or to show grieving families that he understands the root causes of the untimely loss.

“My son spent a year in Iraq and won the Bronze Star Conspicuous Service Medal,” Biden said Friday during a speech at the US Naval Academy’s inaugural drills. He then added: “I lost him.”

After the visit, the President boarded Marine One for the return trip to Washington.

Beau’s death was merely the latest family tragedy to happen to the President’s family. Biden’s one-year-old daughter, Naomi, and his first wife, Neilia, Beau’s mother, died in a car accident in December 1972. They are buried in the same cemetery.
