A close friend of John McCain’s has revealed that the Arizona senator, who died Aug. 25 from brain cancer, wrote a 40-page document specifying the details of his own funeral and memorial services as part of a dizzying flurry of activity in his last days, USA TODAY reports.
Rick Davis told The Arizona Republic, “He said, ‘OK, we’ve got to start planning my funeral.’ We’re like, ‘Uh, can’t it wait? This is depressing.’ He said, ‘No. We’ve got to get it done. We’ve got to get it done right now.’” Davis said McCain completed a variety of projects in his final days, including a book and TV show, but that a dream of making a final appearance in the Senate had to be abandoned due to his failing health.
