After the passing of Senator John McCain, wife Cindy and daughter Meghan sent beautiful tributes to their late family member on Twitter.

McCain, a war hero and longtime senator, passed away on Saturday at the age of 81 after a long battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Meghan McCain, a current cohost on ABC’s “The View,” sent out a long and beautiful statement in remembrance of her late father.

“I was with my father at the end, as he was with me at my beginning,” Meghan wrote. “His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.”

“Today the warrior enters his true and eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things,” Meghan concluded.

Cindy McCain said her heart is “broken” at the loss of her husband, but added that he “passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best.”
