“The View” co-host Meghan McCain took to social media to share a throwback wedding photo with her father Senator John McCain, who passed away of brain cancer in August of last year.

Meghan is still coping with the loss of her father John McCain as she continues to share memories with her fans.

"The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad — but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us."

"308 days, Dad. Still counting them," the 34-year-old captioned an Instagram photo recently.

The image was taken from her wedding to conservative writer and commentator Ben Domenech on November 21, 2017, at McCain's family ranch in Sedona, Arizona.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Meghan's mother, Cindy McCain, shared that the menu for the columnist's wedding was intended for her dad.

“Meghan really geared it a great deal to her dad so he would enjoy the menu,” Cindy said.

“Meghan and her dad did sit down and throw out ideas and what they came up with was spectacular,” she continued. “It’s going to be an interesting and really yummy menu. I think everyone will like it.”

After her father died, Meghan shared a touching tribute on social media.

“In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things,” she wrote. “He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.”

"The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad — but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us," she concluded her post.

A month ago, ahead of Father's Day, Meghan also took to Twitter to ask her followers to share stories of their deceased fathers.

"Anyone else out there who is dreading Father’s Day this Sunday - I feel you, and have been trying to come up with something positive to do Sunday. So, I want you to feel free to share #deaddadsclub stories on my timeline and I will share it. Maybe we will all feel less alone?" she tweeted.

In 2007, Meghan first got the media attention of her own accord for her blog, McCain Blogette. In her blog, she documented life on the campaign trail and reflected about fashion, music, and pop culture.
