NFL Star Larry Fitzgerald honored to speak at Sen. McCain’s memorial service

Larry Fitzgerald, a wideout of the Arizona Cardinals has been asked by Cindy McCain to speak at Sen. John McCain's memorial service in Phoenix. Fitzgerald said he was asked by Mrs. McCain a couple of months ago to speak at the service. He will be one of six speakers at the memorial service on Thursday. The receiver is set to speak before former Vice President Joe Biden. He has known Sen. McCain for several years and the two men have grown very close over the years.

While speaking with Josh Weinfuss of ESPN, Fitzgerald said,

"It's truly one of the greatest honors of my life to be able to talk about somebody who served his country so passionately and had been so dedicated to policies of this nation.”

Fitzgerald also added:  

"Fortunately, I've had some time to get prepared and put some of my thoughts on paper," Fitzgerald said. "I've had to kind of shorten it down. You have a short window. It's tough to be able to get everything you want to say. How do you accurately be able to give somebody their due justice who served the United States for 60-plus years, I mean dedicated his entire life?"

"You think about those 60-plus years and everything he's done from his time served as a POW to all the years in the Senate, the things he's done here for the great state of Arizona — and to be able to do that in five or six minutes is extremely difficult. I'm going to do the best I can and try to honor him for the wonderful man that he is.”
