    WASHINGTON — Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden has canceled his campaign appearances Monday and Tuesday after the death of his mother-in-law on Sunday.

    Biden spokesman David Wade said Bonny Jean Jacobs, the mother of Biden's wife, Jill, died Sunday after a long illness.

    Jacobs was 78 and lived in Willow Grove, Pa. Wade described her as a "homemaker and avid gardener with a lifelong love of reading."

    "We appreciate everyone's respect for the family's privacy during this difficult time," Wade said.

    I hate to hear that.

    This has to be tough for him. With anyone else, they would have all the time they need to mourn.

    I don't think any of us understand the sacrifices people make when they run for POTUS.

    My condolences....

    That's a tough situation to be in at any time but now, even more so.
