Final farewells for Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

Final farewells for Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

The family of late Arizona Sen.

Hundreds of people paid their respects to U.S. Sen.

Jack McCain, son of Senator John McCain touches the casket during a memorial service at the Arizona Capitol on Wednesday.

McCain will be remembered at the Arizona State Capitol and then at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda before being buried at U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis on Sunday.

McCain died Saturday afternoon, after a long fight with brain cancer.

Cindy McCain pressed her face against the flag-draped casket of her husband, U.S. Sen.

"I think it is John McCain imparting a lesson in civility by asking the two men who defeated him to speak, as an example to America that differences in political views and contests shouldn't be so important that we lose our common bonds and the civility that is, or used to be, a hallmark of American democracy", Duprey said.

Following the death of Senator John McCain who had been battling aggressive brain cancer since past year, a special edition of "20/20" gives an in-depth look at his legendary public, professional and personal life.

"When all of us here traveled and told people we were from Arizona, people knew two big things about it", Ducey said, "John McCain and the Grand Canyon".

"Donald Trump and Sarah Palin were not served official notice outright", says the source.

Arizona, the state John McCain represented for 30 years, was home.

Former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl served alongside McCain in the U.S. Senate for almost two decades.

US playwright, ‘king of comedy’ Neil Simon dead at 91
Many of his plays were adapted into movies and one, " The Odd Couple ", became a popular TV series. Simon is survived by his wife, actress Elaine Joyce, and his daughters, Nancy, Ellen and Bryn.

Kyl said he would miss McCain and that his greatest contribution was national security. Jeff Flake delivered a touching benediction.

Other military members in uniform congregated on the Capitol plaza. Black curtains hung in the rotunda.

They took shelters from the hot sun under tents erected by security teams while volunteers filled coolers with ice and water bottles.

Meghan McCain patted the coffin with one hand while holding the other over her stomach.

"It feels like you're losing part of your family, as much as he did", she said. He also opted to skip the annual Kennedy Center Honors previous year amid a political backlash from some of the honorees, and has faced repeated public rebuffs from athletes invited to the White House after winning championships. The single mom and Democrat brought a bouquet of flowers and said she had always looked up to McCain.

"Yesterday I asked my son who his hero was. He gave me a rapper's name", Morales said. "They won't be turned away by guards if they show up at the funeral". "We never would have been ready for this", he said at the private service.

In his death, McCain left a hole in Congress and the fabric of American public life, as well as a vision of how the country can recover from political divisiveness.

He is the only name to make the list twice, because, as Ken once said, McCain's gimmicky Straight Talk Express in his 2000 primary run against George W. Bush was insane and his support for The War on Terror in 2008-even as the global economy tanked-was detestable. "That history has anointed me to save my country in its hour of need".

Among the pallbearers will be Democratic former vice president Joe Biden, ex-senator Russ Feingold, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg and actor Warren Beatty.

Musical choices include a performance of Amazing Grace by the Brophy Student Ensemble and a recessional to My Way by Frank Sinatra.

In a final letter released Monday, McCain appeared to repudiate Trump's politics one last time, saying, "We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe".

John McCain lies in the roster of leaders he personally selected to pay tribute at his memorial service Saturday at the National Cathedral.
