Hard to leave: McCain's family weeps over casket

John McCain's memorial service Wednesday described how important the iconic US senator was to the state.

Kassandra Morales, 44, stood in line with her sons, 8 and 2.

Though Cindy McCain herself has been speculated to be a possible replacement, she has reportedly not expressed any desire to serve out her husband's term.

McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee and Vietnam War hero, died Saturday at 81 after a battle with brain cancer. A choir from the Jesuit-run Brophy College Preparatory school that McCain's sons Jack and Jimmy attended will sing "Amazing Grace" and "Arizona".

Extinct Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl talked about he has been with McCain all round the globe and he had higher instincts on when to explain US energy than somebody else he knew.

McCain is only the third individual so honored in Arizona's state capitol over the past 40 years, organizers of the ceremony said.

Never one to mince words, Graham admitted when Trump "says something bad about John, it pisses me off".

The White House initially lowered its US flag to half-staff on Saturday, raised it back up, and on Monday lowered it again in an unusual break with protocol. But under pressure from military veterans and members of Congress, Trump finally issued a statement on Monday saying he respected McCain's service to the country and had ordered flags to half-staff.

A year after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, John McCain has succumbed to cancer.

Arizona residents have been invited to honour McCain on Thursday by lining the route from the Capitol to the North Phoenix Baptist Church, where an honour guard will greet the hearse when it arrives.
