Many bloggers and commenters on Internet forums, such as here, here and here are asking when the funeral of Obama’s grandmother took place, if the President-Elect attended, and if so, why wasn’t the fawning press all over the occasion?

Okay, here’s the scoop: My sources tell me that the family wanted to keep it low-key, so yes, Obama did attend, and his grandmother, after a brief service, was cremated along with some items she cherished: Her wedding ring, favorite blanket, and grandson’s birth certificate.

I hope this settles the issue once and for all.
