While he isn't my candidate, I do wish to offer prayers and support to him and his family. I don't wish something like this on anyone, especially the night before the election. It's so sad she couldn't see the results, but in the article she did say in her eyes he accomplished everything he needed to do to be successful. (paraphrasing).
I almost cried when I heard the news, it's so sad. One day before the election he was likely to win.. being the first black man to be president of the United States! R.I.P indeed, and sincere condolences to Barack Obama.
