ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The casket of Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden arrives for funeral service where President Barack Obama will deliver eulogy. The former Delaware Attorney General, Beau Biden, died after battling brain cancer. He was 46. "The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words," Vice President Biden said in a statement released by the White House. "We know that Beau's spirit will live on in all of us, especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter," he said. Beau Biden had announced last year he planned to run for governor of Delaware in 2016. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013 and underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. After getting a "a clean bill of health" in November of that year, his cancer recurred in the spring of 2015, the vice president's office said. Beau Biden was very close to his father and a familiar presence in his political campaigns.
