What a beautiful tribute from Meghan McCain for Senator John S. McCain III:
Ray ranted and raved about every Republican except him and me. Ray actually said he loved Senator McCain several times, for being a rational, reasonable Republican. I believe many people would say this of Senator McCain. He stood for good values and civility. Anyone who knew Ray, being the vehement Minnesota “Yellow Dog” Democrat that he was, knew that his admiration for Senator McCain was truly a heart felt sentiment. My Cranky Yankee was not known to mete out praise unless you had earned his respect.
Ray was a Plank Owner for the USS John S. McCain DL-3. Senator McCain’s family will always be near and dear to our hearts, as someone who truly remains a Hero, as does Ray, to our Constitutional republic with democratic principles.
God bless you McCain family and sail on Hero to tie one on with my beautiful Ray. We adore you.
