Barack Obama: Goodbye, Grandma!

President-elect Barack Obama and his half-sister Maya attend a memorial service for their grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, on Tuesday at at the First Unitarian Church in Honolulu in Oahu, Hawaii.

Obama, Maya and long-time family friend Bobby Titcomb were seen scattering flower petals and his grandmother’s ashes in the sea at Lanai Lookout.

Madelyn, whom Obama called “Toot,” died on the eve of the election. Her absentee ballot (obviously for Obama) was cast before her death and was still counted as an official vote for her grandson.
