WILMINGTON, Del. — Delawareans have been gathering at a Catholic church in Wilmington to pay their respects to former Attorney General Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer last week.

The 46-year-old Biden, eldest son of Vice President Joe Biden, was being mourned Friday during a viewing at St. Anthony of Padua church.

Biden’s flag-draped casket arrived shortly after noon. Delaware National Guard Adjutant General Francis Vavala saluted as an honor guard carried the casket to the church, where mourners began lining up outside.

Viewing hours were to be from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A funeral Mass will be held Saturday, with President Barack Obama giving a eulogy.
