    A good honest man who overcame a lot. And did good for us all.
    I think of him as he spoke of President Obama. A good citizen who I disagree with on some issues.
    He will be missed.

    Unfortunately, his name and honor have been attacked by Trump supporters in recent days.

    McCain was an honorable man. I often didn't agree with his politics, but he was authentic and had integrity.

    May God comfort his family as they walk through the shadow of death.

    I didn't always agree with his politics, but I thought he was a man of honor and integrity. He served his country well. May his memory be a blessing to all who loved him.

    The man served his country well by his service in the Navy and by becoming a prisoner of war for 5 years. He was true to self in his political decisions and crossed political lines when he felt it was necessary for those whom he worked, the people of America. Many in politics could learn from his work ethic, honor and integrity. Rest in peace sir!!

    The eulogies: All heartfelt, but his daughter Meghan's speech cut right to the heart. He was obviously dearly loved by her and his family. There must not have been a dry eye in the cathedral. He got the beautiful send off he deserved.
