The oldest brother of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has died from the CCP virus, the lawmaker said on Thursday.
Donald Reed Herring, an Oklahoma resident, was 86.
"I’m grateful to the nurses and frontline staff who took care of him, but it’s hard to know that there was no family to hold his hand or to say 'I love you' one more time—and no funeral for those of us who loved him to hold each other close," Warren wrote.
Warren said her brother was a military veteran who joined the Air Force at age 19 and spent years fighting in Vietnam. She described him as charming, funny, and a natural leader.
He died on April 21.
