    He lost his son to cancer the other night.

    He lost his wife and daughter to a drunk driver years ago.

    I don't particularly like the man, but I sure do feel bad for him today.

    I didn't know anything about his loss of his daughter and wife until I listened to the news about the loss of his son yesterday.

    I have been praying. This is too much loss.

    After the death of his first wife Biden wanted to be home every day for his young sons. Thus, he commuted every day by Amtrak. It is a 1½ hour trip each way from his home in the Wilmington to Washington, D.C. He continued to do throughout his Senate career.

    I have children nearly that same age as the vice-president. My daughter-in'law has been battling leukaemia.

    My heart hurts for he and his family.

    His first wife was from Auburn - about a 30 minute trip from the Salt City. They both attended Syracuse University. Later she became a teacher in the Syracuse City School District.

    They lived only about 5 minutes from where I grew up.
