McCain served his country with distinction for more than 60 years.

The longtime Arizona senator and two-time presidential candidate - who died on August 25 at age 81 after battling brain cancer since 2017 - took the stage at Saturday Night Live several times over the years, and each time, he looked like he was having a gosh-darned blast. "Karen and I are praying for Senator John McCain, Cindy and their family this weekend", Pence tweeted. "I want to find somebody whose desire is to be in the United States Senate and can serve Arizona well".

"The Suns organization stands with Cindy and the entire McCain family in honoring the life and legacy of this incredible man". "He loved me, and I loved him", she wrote.

And former President Barack Obama tweeted a touching statement from him and Michelle. U.S. President Donald Trump, who once criticized McCain for being taken prisoner during the Vietnam War, said his "deepest sympathies and respect" went out to McCain's family. "Our hearts and prayers are with you!" he wrote on his personal account.

Denied the presidency, Mr. McCain expressed unbelievable grace to Barack Obama, who defeated him in a bruising 2008 race. He said "all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own".

"He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth", said Meghan McCain, one of the late senator's seven children - three of them from a previous marriage. And for that, we are all in his debt.

When Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in June 2015, suggesting that many Mexican immigrants were criminals and "rapists", McCain denounced him for using language that "fired up the crazies". Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. John McCain, his one-time political rival, a "man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order". He was a piblic servant in the finest traditions of our country. "I like people that weren't captured".

The Obamas shared their own lengthy message on Twitter too, praising his courage in both politics and the war, before sending their best wishes to Cindy and the rest of the senator's family. "And I've lost one of my dearest friends and mentor".

Arizona Senator John McCain inspired the nation with his character, heroism, humility and public service. McCain's captors beat him until he confessed, an episode that first led to shame - and then discovery. Connie and I are thinking of them now.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, will appoint a temporary replacement to represent the state in the U.S. Senate until the next general election. "I particularly remember his love for the birds", Collins said. "He will be missed".

Meghan McCain ended her statement with a quote by C.S. Lewis about a warrior entering his true and eternal life that said "the dream is ending: this is the morning". In his concession speech, Mr. McCain, citing the death of Mr. Obama's grandmother only 48 hours earlier, said, "Senator Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and for his country, and I applaud him for it and offer him his honest sympathy his beloved grandmother did not see him on this day".

McCain said of Trump's comments: "No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant".

Mattis said the Department of Defense "will remain forever grateful for the life, the passion, and the example of Senator John McCain".
