Bidens Dedicate Hospice Room

Joe Biden and his family have dedicated a room at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington to Catherine Finnegan Biden, the vice president's mother. Writes WHYY news:

Vice President Biden's mother died earlier this year at the age of 92. Before her death, Mrs. Biden received care at the hospice in St. Francis Hospital. After her death, the hospice leaders asked the family if they could rename the family room in her honor, and the family agreed. Tom Taylor, regional director for Compassionate Care Hospice, says the family room was picked because family was so important to Mrs. Biden. "It was just so evident by the way she supported her children, her grand children," Taylor said. "It was a very family-centric moment. This is going to be their first Mother's Day without their mother."
