Is Carol McCain, his first wife, the mother of John McCain's three eldest children there? Seems like they might want her to share the ceremonies on behalf of their family. 


@Silver Lining.  I believe I read she would attend the burial ceremony at the Naval Academy.


 

Thank you for that information, @proudlyfromNJ. I have always felt sad for her. This must be hard for her, too.

This is such a moving Celebration of Life for the family of John McCain.  My heart goes out to them.

 

I've so enjoyed listening to the previous Presidents, they are so dignified and kind in their rememberences of John McCain.  Such a breath of fresh air.

Cindy McCain is showing such strength, class, and dignity. I admire that very much.

@GinzTonic I understand she and Bill were with Ms. Franklin yesterday. Is that still going on?  If not, I don’t know where they are.
