Sen. John McCain's family cries over flag-draped casket

Sen. John McCain's family cries over flag-draped casket Sen. John McCain's family cries over flag-draped casket

McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee and Vietnam War hero, died Saturday at 81 after a battle with brain cancer. A private funeral will be held at the Naval Academy's Chapel in Annapolis on Sunday, followed by burial services at the Academy's cemetery.

Cindy McCain arrives for a memorial service for John McCain, at the Arizona Capitol on Wednesday, escorted by her sons Jimmy, left, and Jack.

Gov. Doug Ducey said when it came to Arizona there were two bigs things people think of: The Grand Canyon and John McCain.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., McCain's close friend, will offer a tribute, followed by Petraeus, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and a retired Army general.

"I'm going to make sure that the Congress keeps asking the hard questions and try to persuade President Trump, if you leave Afghanistan, it will blow up in your face, that hoping Syria gets better without a strategy won't work, and do it in a Lindsey way", he said.

Sen. Jeff Flake offered the benediction, expressing gratitude "for his life and for his sacrifice" and "that John made Arizona his home". The radio hosts presented Brewer with the idea of renaming the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after McCain.

Albert Cabreira, a 50-year-old school teacher, salutes outside the Arizona Capitol Museum where the body of Sen.

The line snaked down streets even as a continuous flow of people flowed past the casket.

"The Senate, the United States, and the world are lesser places without John McCain", Schumer, a New York Democrat who is the minority leader in the Senate and who is Jewish, said Saturday on Twitter.

President Donald Trump won't be there, but Defense Secretary James Mattis will be a pallbearer.

Biden and Fitzgerald will read remarks along with McCain's friends Tommy Espinoza and Grant Woods. "And they have become US citizens and good Americans".

Ray Riordan, an 87-One year-worn Navy feeble who fought in the Korean War, came from Payson, Arizona. She said she liked how McCain didn't act as though he was above others, and she praised all he did for veterans.

"Some of the biggest fights I'd ever had was with one Ted Kennedy", McCain joked on CBS's 60 Minutes a year ago.

Kassandra Morales, 44, stood in line with her sons, 8 and 2.

Yet most Senate Republicans aren't backing changing the building's name - so far anyway.

The air around the Arizona State Capitol was heavy as McCain's body moved from the A.L. Moore Grimshaw-Mortuary Wednesday morning.

He took office in Arizona in the early 1980s, first as a congressman and then as a senator in the seat once held by senator Barry Goldwater. Some of those services are private, but many are followed by public services with live streams available so people across the country can tune in and pay their respects.
