Julie Vernot and her 7-year-old daughter, Lauren Vernot, react as the hearse and Biden family arrive for a mass of Christian burial at St. Anthony of Padua Church for former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden in Wilmington, Delaware, June 6, 2015.
Mourners from across the state lined up for hours to pay homage to Beau Biden and his family. Biden died last Saturday of brain cancer.
"Joe Biden is Delaware, and his son is also Delaware to me," Lisa Rial, who grew up in Delaware but lives in Pennsylvania, told The Associated Press. "They're synonymous with Delaware."
