No one can fill his shoes

Farewell to a wonderful person, Sen. John McCain. With much sadness I watched the beautiful farewell ceremony to a great hero.

I , like others, should remember him as someone who stood up for America’s poor, like defeating Donald Trump on the repeal of Obamacare, in which we would not have the health care we have now.

I was wondering about this comment I saw in the news, saying Trump was free for now. Why, because John McCain isn’t here to defeat him in any more in such doings? It tickled me pink to learn he was ordered not to attend the services for some of the remarks he made about John McCain. I’m sure he will not have the same farewell.

There will never be another to fill the shoes of this great person we have lost.
