It was a extremely emotional second because the household of Senator John McCain paid their respects to the late senator on Wednesday, throughout a personal memorial service at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix.
Cindy McCain, the senator’s wife of 38 years, and his daughter Meghan McCain each cried over his casket and at some level, Cindy tenderly positioned her cheek in opposition to the casket.
They had been joined by the senator’s sons, Jack and Jimmy, who had been each absolutely dressed of their uniform as they saluted their father who died at 81 after a year-long battle with aggressive mind most cancers.
Sen. McCain will lie in state at the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday and the U.S. Capitol Rotunda on Friday earlier than being transported to Maryland for a personal service at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis on Sunday.
