Writer was right: McCain funeral much

Thank you to Phyllis Hetrick for her Oct. 1 letter concerning the John McCain funeral.

She stated what many of us felt at the time and are still feeling. He gave himself an unofficial state funeral, with all the trimmings, and at the expense of the American people. His ego and self-worth far exceeded reality.

The letter from David R. Clapper on Oct. 8 expands on this. Thank you to them both.

The McCain family should be sent a bill for this.

At a time when someone passes, all hate and ill-will should be left behind but Sen. McCain chose to honor himself, even in death.
