At least 24 current U.S. senators will attend Sen. John McCain’s memorial service Thursday in Phoenix, his office said.

The service, which will begin at approximately 10 a.m. local time, follows a procession from the Arizona state Capitol, where visitors on Wednesday could observe McCain’s casket draped in the American flag.

The list of McCain’s colleagues at the service Thursday includes 14 Republicans and 10 Democrats. Six former senators will also attend.

Here is the list of known notable attendees:

After Thursday’s memorial, McCain’s body will be flown to Washington, D.C., for two more days of services on Friday and Saturday.

The senator will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday for public viewing. On Saturday, the casket will be brought to the Washington National Cathedral for a final, invite-only memorial service that will be live-streamed online.

McCain, who first came to the Senate in 1987, died last Saturday after a 14-month battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer.

He was 81.
