Former Vice President Joe Biden remembers his friend, colleague John McCain in moving eulogy

Friends, family, constituents and colleagues are remembering Senator John McCain. McCain passed away Saturday evening following a long battle with brain cancer at the age of 81.

Since McCain’s passing, colleagues have been sending their condolences and sympathies to the McCain family.


Former Vice President Joe Biden lost his son Beau to the same disease that ended McCain’s life. Biden wrote “Promise Me, Dad,” a book chronicling the last year with his son as Beau was diagnosed and ultimately passed away from glioblastoma.

While the former vice president and Senator McCain may have been members of different parties, it’s obvious there was a genuine friendship and a ton of respect between the two men.

On Thursday, Biden honored and remembered his friend his friend and colleague. He talked about his love for his departed friend, McCain’s ability to set aside differences and work for the good of the country and the tough, difficult times that life often throws our way.
