What was the song being played as McCain's casket was being borne from the cathedral? I should know but do not.

5. I wonder if the word or name(?) Jupiter has any significance we don't know about.

Secret Service handle or something?

8. Thanks.

It's been a long time since any one called me "soldier." I was surprised it brought a tear to my eye.

9. The Jupiter composition is also known as...

...The Bringer of Joy. Not too much of a stretch that his family might have been saying that he brought them joy.

10. I thought it was 'Bringer Of Jollity'.

Jove is an alternative name for Jupiter, and is the root of the word 'jovial'.

12. I've seen both designations.

It is certainly an energizing piece of music.

14. I like listening to it for its Star Trek vibe.

Until the 'I Vow To Thee' section begins. Then I just cry...

15. I love all the Star Trek themes, except the one from...

...the "prequel" with Scott Bakula.

11. My bet is the setting of the English patriotic hymn, "I Vow to Thee My Country."

Completely in keeping with McCain's life.
