President Pence heads to Vermont for the weekend

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a memorial service to celebrate the life of of U.S. Sen.

A digest of the top political stories from the Globe, sent to your inbox Monday-Friday. Biden spoke to McCain's family, drawing on the well of his own sorrow following the untimely death of his son, Beau. "John McCain was such a man", Pence said in the Capitol Rotunda, standing before congressional leaders, military brass and government officials.

Sitting next to her 106-year-old grandmother, Roberta McCain, she appeared to glare at Pence as he explained that the president had asked him to attend.

Biden then told an anecdote about how both and he and McCain were reprimanded by party leaders in 1996 for their seating arrangements. "I swear to God". The same thing was said to John in your caucus. "That's when it changed".

Notably absent, however, was Trump himself, who feuded fiercely and frequently with McCain over the last three years.

He said, "I pray you take some comfort knowing that because you shared John with all of us your whole life, the world now shares with you the ache of John's death".

"We had a hell of a lot of family fights", he added, as the audience laughed.

Biden, whose son Beau died in 2015 from the same kind of brain cancer that McCain had, said he and McCain both knew "from our different experiences that, and as our life progressed we learned even more, that there are times when life can be so cruel, pain so blinding it's hard to see anything else".

Biden said that they understood it's all about trust and that he would trust John with his life. "It's brutal, it's relentless, it's unforgiving".

"What's going to happen is, six months will go by, and everybody's going to think, well, it's passed. When you challenge their motive, it's impossible to get to go". "I promise you, I promise you", he repeated that there will be a time when a smile rather than a tear comes first in recalling your departed loved one. "That day will come".
