Meghan McCain posted a sentimental photograph of late Senator John McCain's grave as she grieved the loss of her father. 33-year-old Meghan posted a picture of her father’s tombstone at the United States Naval Academy on Sunday, captioned: “I miss you the most on Sunday.”

The Republican politician and war hero, who died at age 81 in August of glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer, was decorated with flowers, coins, and American flags left as tribute on his grave. In the photo, one can see the grave of his best friend nearby, that of U.S. Navy Admiral Charles “Chuck” Larson, People reports.

According to ABC News, Sen. McCain wrote in his 2018 memoir 'The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations' that he wanted to “take my leave bound for a place near my old friend Chuck Larson, in the cemetery on the Severn, back where it began.”

During an appearance on CNN’s New Day in August, Larson’s widow Sarah said: “Chuck has his wingman back then. Chuck came home one day and he said, ‘I picked out my grave,’ and I went ‘Oh, okay.’ He said, ‘By the way, John is going to be next to me.'” She continued, “That was 20 some years ago, and then, all of a sudden, it hit me that, 'Oh my goodness, they will be next to each other.'”

“From the second that my father passed, I had to get in a car and a motorcade... From the moment I left, there were people of all races, all ages, all creeds, people saluting, praying... He would’ve loved it,” she said. “I cried the entire time. There was a lot of talk about what died with him, his ideals, but they didn’t," she said. “My father always said, ‘We are Americans, and we can never surrender,’” she said. “I understand how scared and divided people are. You have to join me in never surrendering.”
