The thing about Delaware being small is that everyone grieves

The one place where you could be sure to see Senator Biden was the Amtrak station. In 1988 I approached him there after the aneurysm surgeries to say how good it was to see him looking so strong. Young Beau was with him, looking immortal.

We have had a string of 5 deaths close to home in the last several weeks, the next-to-last being my best friend.

Now anyone who spent two decades in Delaware feels Beau Biden's death as if were a kind of death in the family, even though in a very extended family.
