Hundreds gathered to honor the life of former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden on Thursday at a memorial service held in the Delaware Legislative State House in Dover.

Biden, the oldest son of Vice President Joe Biden, died Saturday after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. He was 46 years old.

Mourners lined up to pay their respects to the Biden family, who shook hands and hugged guests in front of a flag-draped casket.

During the service, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell presented the vice president’s late son the Delaware Conspicuous Service Cross — a cross awarded for heroism, meritorious service and outstanding achievement.
