At the Arden Gild Hall, about two miles from here, where Second Son has appeared in several community theatre plays, at a Memorial Service that I did not attend for someone I did not know:
So, it was at this low-key, but very moving, memorial service, as one speaker put it, “Part Irish wake, part Quaker meeting”, that the Vice President of the United States got up and spoke from the heart about his longtime friendship with Bob Cunningham. He talked about their exploits together in Arden, where Bob spent many of his formative years and where Biden lived briefly. He talked about how Bob was there in the family’s darkest moments and proudest triumphs. For 30 minutes, he eulogized Cunningham and told many stories, some humorous, some touching, and some both.
