Over the weekend, Meghan McCain released an emotional statement announcing her father’s death. Republican Senator of Arizona, John McCain, sadly passed away at 81 years old. He would have turned 82 on Wednesday, August 29th.
Since news broke of the war hero’s passing, many other politicians and celebrities posted a tribute for McCain on social media. Among those who shared kind words for the Senator included Franklin Graham.
Graham, an outspoken conservative Christian, is famously recognized as the son of the legendary Rev. Billy Graham. Graham recently lost his father in February of this year.
In honor of both his father and Senator McCain, Graham shared a touching photo of the three of them from 10 years ago. They were reportedly visiting his dad's house at the time.
“Senator John McCain lived a life of service, was a true patriot, and wasn’t afraid to take a stand for what he felt was right,” Graham said of the Republican Senator. “It was such an honor to spend time with him at my father Billy Graham's home in 2008. Let’s continue to lift up Senator John McCain’s family in prayer.”
Like Graham, others have also been praying for Senator McCain’s family. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Cindy, and their beloved children.
Please join Faith Family America in prayer as McCain’s family continues to cope with this difficult loss. May God bring them peace and comfort.
