Vice President Biden is in Wilmington, Delaware, "where he has gathered with family to spend time with his mother, who has taken seriously ill in recent days," the White House announced Thursday.

Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Biden is 92 and was treated in the hospital after a fall last March.

She deserves a great place in heaven for giving us such a brave and a good man as a leader of our country. Thanks Mrs. Biden.

During the last election I was mighty impressed with Jean Biden's life story. It allowed me to see how a strong, inspiring mother can so nicely shape and inspire her children and their children's futures. The Biden Family was truly blessed to have her for a Mom.

Biden is a horrible politican but best wishes to the Bidens during this time. Family matters have nothing to do with politics and I hope for the best for his family.

My prayers are with the Biden family today. That this family crisis comes at a moment of great national concern calls for us to pray for our nation and its leaders and for all the good people in government as well.

Your family needs you at this moment, Mr. Vice President... as does our President.
