By Paige Gawley
Meghan McCain is sharing some of her favorite memories of her late father, John McCain. On Tuesday, the two-year anniversary of the politician's death due to cancer, Meghan, who is pregnant with her first child, took to Twitter to pay tribute to her dad.
Sharing a photo of her and the former senator taken from behind, Meghan wrote, "Two years today. 742 days. Miss you every single one."
In a second post, the View co-host admitted that the day was turning out to be "harder than I thought it'd be," before sharing "a few memories of my dad that I hope make all of us smile." The first was a video of John making bacon.
Next came a clip of the late politician making ribs on the grill, with Meghan revealing that "no one can imitate [the recipe] perfectly but we try."
His ribs were dry with a special combination of ingredients I can’t share all of it except he used @HogsBreathDesFL seasoning and it’s the only way I like my ribs. This was always my go to when he asked what we wanted for dinner. No one can imitate it perfectly but we try pic.twitter.com/VGFSYLBHRx
The 35-year-old TV personality additionally posted a black-and-white pic, gushing that John "loved being a dad," before sharing more about their relationship.
"We talked a few times a day and I miss his laugh and dark sense of humor the most. Grief doesn’t get easier but in my experience the pain does get quieter in time. I still wake up every day missing him," she wrote alongside a screenshot from one of their FaceTime calls. "Thank you for letting me share with you. He also loved @Twitter."
