Meghan McCain Sobs Over Late Father's Casket During Memorial in Phoenix
John McCain's body will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol this week before burial at the U.S. Naval Academy this weekend.
John McCain’s widow, Cindy, followed her husband's casket into the Arizona capitol Wednesday, flanked by two of the senator's sons and the rest of his seven children.
Inside, Cindy kissed her husband's coffin.
His daughter, Meghan, fought unsuccessfully to hold back her tears.
Arizona, the state John McCain represented for 30 years, was home. The son of a Navy admiral, he moved frequently growing up and once said the Hanoi Hilton Prison was the longest he'd ever lived anywhere until he moved to the state.
After family members said their farewells, an honor guard of state troopers was posted by the casket.
McCain’s remains will later move to the U.S. Capitol, where he will lie in state before this weekend’s burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
His funeral is set to take place Sunday, where former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama will give eulogies.
McCain died at age 81 Saturday after losing his battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
