My sister sent me a text message tonight to tell me that Obama's grandmother died today from cancer. The tears are flowing again while I'm sitting here typing. I wish she could have held on just one or two more days.
All the difference in the world for two more days.
Still, I believe in heaven and I believe that she'll still get to see her grandson make history tomorrow. And when her body is laid to rest, the boy she raised will be the president elect.
