Bonny Jacobs, the mother of Senator Biden’s wife, Jill, passed away earlier today. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Biden and Jacobs families. Considering all that Senator Biden has been through, this must be a hard time for him.
Biden had initially cancelled his campaign events on Friday to be with his son, Beau, who was being deployed to Iraq (he’s in the National Guard). Hospice then informed the family that Mrs. Jacobs was not doing well, and Biden cancelled events on Friday and Saturday. Upon her passing today, he has cancelled all of his events for Monday and Tuesday.
Again, my thoughts go out to both families, and may Mrs. Jacobs rest in peace.
