Meghan McCain Shares Emotional Tribute To Late Father, John McCain, A Year After His Death


It has been one year since John McCain passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer. When news broke about his death, his name was in news headlines for weeks after the fact. Now, a year later, his daughter Meghan McCain is remembering her late father in a truly emotional and heart-wrenching tribute.

She takes to Twitter, posting a photo of the two holding hands. She writes, “Last year tomorrow, August 25th was the worst day of my life. I lost my hero. I miss my father every single day, I will for the rest of my life. Grief is omnipresent and relentless. For every single person who has sent prayers, love & support to my family, we are truly grateful.”


Meghan McCain says “I lose my hero,” as she remembers her late father

Meghan posts a second photo following the emotional tribute to her late father. It’s a photo capturing the two gazing out into the desert, presumably in Arizona (where McCain held office). Meghan says alongside the photo that she plans to take a break from social media.

“On this anniversary until his birthday after the 29th I am going to take a break from social media. The memory of my father’s life continues to guide me today, as it always will. Remember to cherish your loved ones. I still can’t believe my heart didn’t stop when yours did, Dad,” she says.

Meghan hasn’t been taking the loss easily over the last year

Meghan has been very open about the pain she’s been feeling since she lost her father at the age of 81. The View co-host went back to work just a month after delivering a beautiful and powerful eulogy at her father’s memorial service in Washington, D.C. Coming back to work for the first time since her absence, it was obvious they would all remember his legacy together.

Just a few weeks after she would return to work, she posts on Instagram that she is having a really tough time dealing with the loss.

“I miss your laugh, your voice, your dark sense of humor, the way you always made me feel safe in a world that seems to have lost its way. … I love you forever. Stay with me,” she writes in that post.

It’s undoubtedly been a very hard and trying journey recovering from the loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with Meghan and her family during this time of remembrance.
