Barack Obama’s ‘Toot’ has left for her heavenly abode. The Democratic presidential contender announced the death of her grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, from the campaign trail in Charlotte, N.C. She was 86 and died on Sunday night, after a long battle with cancer.
Dunham played a great role in shaping Obama’s constructive years. Its really a sad news for Obama. She was very optimistic about her grandson’s Presidential run, but passed away in her sleep just a day before the elections. However, Obama will consider himself really lucky to have made a hurried visit to Hawaii last week just to meet and seek her blessings (derived from the Hawaiian word for grandmother, tutu).
We at Celebguru, extend our deepest condolence to the Obama family.
