Beau Biden, Son Of VP Joe Biden Dies At Age 46

Beau Biden (full name Joseph R. Biden III), the son of Vice President Joe Biden and former Delaware Attorney General, died on Saturday at the age of 46 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Vice President Joe Biden is no stranger to tragedy, having lost his first wife and 13-month-old daughter to a car accident in 1972.

Beau is survived by his wife Hallie, and their two children, Natalie, 11, and Hunter, 9. Ugh so sad.

The tragedy is reminiscent of the numerous Kennedy tragedies, this death being the first death of a child of any sitting President or Vice President since John F. Kennedy buried his infant son Patrick Bouvier Kennedy.

Our condolences go out to the Bidens.
