President-elect Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden attended Mass this morning at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church, on the 48th anniversary of the death of his wife and his infant daughter in a traffic accident.
Biden on Thursday morning attended Mass at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church, where the Bidens worship and where the remains of Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and two children, Naomi and Beau, are buried in the church’s adjacent cemetery.
It’s the 48th anniversary of the death of his wife and his infant daughter who were struck by a tractor-trailer as Neilia took the kids to pick out a Christmas tree. The tragedy occurred shortly after Biden was elected to his first term in the U.S. Senate.
Biden’s son Hunter and late son Beau, ages 3 and 4 at the time, were also seriously injured. The Senator-elect ultimately took his oath of office from from his children’s beside at a Delaware hospital.
