The sad news came that Senator John McCain passed away peacefully with his family. I photographed John McCain many times throughout my career, here is one of my favorites of him on the Campaign trail for President of the United States in 2008 in Prince William County, VA where I grew up.

I had a funeral during a really bad thunderstorm at Arlington National Cemetery today, the caisson team left and so did the band due to lightning. To say it was a downpour was an underestimate. The family decided to walk with the Army detail with the remains of the Father and Brother from the transfer position to the grave site and continue on. Pretty amazing to be apart of it and capture these moments for them.
