CNN (November 4, 2008)
The headline pretty much says it all.
Obama and McCain handled the event quite well, I think. As reported on CNN's website:
- "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.' "
- " 'We offer our deepest condolences to Barack Obama and his family as they grieve the loss of their beloved grandmother. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them as they remember and celebrate the life of someone who had such a profound impact in their lives.' "
