FRIENDS FOREVER

McCain was buried next to his best friend, U.S. Navy Admiral Charles 'Chuck' Larson, whose grave can also be spotted in the photograph shared by the grieving daughter.

Being laid to rest next to his best friend had always been the Senator's wish, as revealed in his 2018 memoir "The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations."

TOGETHER AGAIN

During an interview on CNN's "New Day," Sarah Larson, Larson's widow, said that her husband had 'his wingman back now,' and that he had told her McCain would be buried next to him over 20 years ago.

The day McCain died was a very sad one, but Meghan, who delivered a very emotional and powerful eulogy at the memorial service, claims that her father's ideals didn't die with him.

ONCE A WARRIOR, ALWAYS A WARRIOR

The 33-year-old said that her father would wish for everyone to keep fighting and move on because 'Americans can never surrender,' no matter how 'scared and divided people are.'

Aside from Meghan, former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush were also invited to say a few words about McCain, but Donald Trump wasn't present at the ceremony.

The current head of state was asked not to show up to the memorial service out of respect for McCain due to the bad blood between them.
