Upon the passing of Senator John McCain - a true American patriot and hero - this past Saturday, the Western Growers family wishes to extend its deepest condolences and collective prayers to his family. While it is difficult to encapsulate the full impact of the life and career of Senator McCain, which will reverberate for generations of Americans to come, this one anecdote may suffice: congressional leaders from both parties have announced that Senator McCain will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, an honor that has been bestowed but 31 times in the past 166 years of American history. Senator McCain was, and continues to be, in rare company.
