    Obama's grandmother dies after battle with cancer


    CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has died following a bout with cancer, Obama and his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, said Monday.

    "She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility," their statement said.

    "She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances. She was proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and left this world with the knowledge that her impact on all of us was meaningful and enduring. Our debt to her is beyond measure."

    Obama and Soetoro-Ng asked that donations be made for the search for a cure for cancer in lieu of flowers. A small private ceremony will be held "at a later date."

    Obama left the campaign trail for two days in late October to visit Dunham in Hawaii.

    Obama spoke about his grandmother often on the stump, describing her as an integral figure in his youth who struggled against the glass ceiling in to make a better life for him.

    "She's the one who put off buying a new car or a new dress for herself so that I could have a better life," he said in his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in August.

    "She poured everything she had into me. And although she can no longer travel, I know that she's watching tonight, and that tonight is her night as well."

    He and his family also traveled to Hawaii in August to visit her.

    In what was clearly a very difficult portion of his address Monday night in North Carolina, Barack Obama spoke for several minutes on this grandmother's death from cancer Sunday night. At one point, it seemed, he was moved to tears.

    Calling it a "bittersweet time" in his life, there were moments when one could detect the sadness in his voice and face. The crowd in Charlotte did its best to pull him along, screaming out words of support as he detailed Madelyn Dunham's life and drew from it threads that weaved into his candidacy and message. It was a poignant moment: the woman who helped raise him passing away just hours before the election.

    Hallelluya, Mungu aliyemuumba Bibi Madelyn Dunham, hatimaye amemrudisha kwake.
    Bwana alitoa na Bwana ametwaa Jina la Bwana katika Jina la Yesu libarikiwe. Amen.

    Pole sana ndugu yangu Obama pamoja na dadao.
    Mungu awape nguvu na kukuwezesha Ndugu Baraka kupata ushindi wa kishindo katika uchaguzi unaokukabili leo.

    "Yeye hutandaza kaskazi juu ya nafasi isiyo na kitu, Na kuutundika ulimwengu pasipo kitu" (Ayubu 26:7).
