Settling the Issue of What Happened to Obama’s Grandmother

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.
