Barack Obama's Grandmother Passes Away

I just read that Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, lost her battle with cancer on Monday night at the age of 86.  He has credited his grandmother with helping him become the man he is today.  How difficult it must be for him to keep his focus on what may be one of the biggest days of his life.

I can only imagine that losing a loved one on the eve of such an important event would be almost unbearable. 

My heart and prayers go out to him and his family.
