Barack Obama’s grandmother, whose personality and bearing shaped much of the life of the Democratic presidential contender, has died, Obama announced Monday, one day before the election. Madelyn Payne Dunham was 86.

All of our hearts and thoughts go out to Barack and his family. It's sad that she won't see the grandson she helped raise enter the White House. Nevertheless, she must have been so proud.
