Obama, Clinton together bid adieu at Jean Biden funeral

AT THE funeral of Vice President Joe Biden's beloved mother Catherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden, a host of White House biggies, lawmakers and members of the cabinet, including President Barack Obama and former president Bill Clinton marked their attendance on Tuesday.
Obama, accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, led a 14 member cabinet convoy on a flight from Andrews Air Force base on Air Force One to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Wilmington for the funeral. Also present on the flight was Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Visibly, Joe Biden’s personal as well as political life was significantly motivated by his mother, who was lovingly known as Jean Biden. As reflected by his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, Biden had said that it was his mother who taught him to live with his head held high.
After his mothers’ demise, Biden had said that she had taught him the importance of loyalty and faith in life. He also added that she had immense strength as she believed in them.
Last week, Biden’s mother had passed away on Friday after a brief illness at the Biden family home in Delaware at 92 years of age.
