Meghan McCain Shares Heartbreaking Message About Late Father


U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain passed away this past August at the age of 81. And while weeks have gone by since he left this earth, it’s still a hard pill to swallow for those who loved him the most.

One of those was his dear daughter Meghan McCain.

“I wake up every morning still instinctually trying and reaching to call you on the phone,” McCain wrote on her Instagram page on Monday (Oct. 29) alongside a picture of the father and daughter pair. “I miss you so much Dad it physically hurts my heart. 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.”

Her honesty was then questioned via social media, with some questioning as to why she would share such innermost thoughts with her thousands of followers.

“I don’t believe I am special,” McCain responded on her Twitter page to a follower who questioned her intentions. “There are many of us who are in grief and have lost those love love so deeply. But it makes me feel less alone and hopefully others less alone to share the grief process that is still so taboo to some.”
