Meghan McCain is still in pain after losing her father, Sen. John McCain, nearly a year ago. The TV host shared an incident that happened last week, where she tried calling her father’s phone, forgetting that he was no longer with them.

“How is it possible that I still do that? I don’t know. It doesn’t get easier. We just learn to hide our grief better because it makes so many people so uncomfortable. Our culture avoids any and all reminders of death and mortality,” she wrote.

Senator John died on August 25, 2018, after a well-fought battle with an aggressive and rare brain cancer. In 1982, the 81-year-old was elected to the House of Representatives. After serving his term, he tried to run for president but was defeated.

“I love you so much Dad. I’m not ashamed I still miss you terribly. I’m still searching for meaning and God’s plan in all of it. I’m dreading 20 days from now like I’m bracing for a flood to come,” McCain added.

The host had previous posts where she opened up about her father’s death, including how much she longs to hear his voice and feel his presence.

The father-daughter duo was undoubtedly close, which is why it comes as no surprise that McCain defended her father from a Sen. Amy Klobuchar in May.

Klobuchar recalled an incident where she conversed with the late senator. According to her account, Sen. John “kept reciting names of dictators” during President Donald Trump’s inaugural address to the nation.

“He knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation. He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did,” she said.

A few days after Klobuchar shared the story, McCain took to Twitter a simple request for the senator to “leave my fathers legacy and memory out of presidential politics.”
