“Some of you heard that my grandmother, who helped raise me, passed away early this morning,” he told about 25,000 people gathered on a field at UNC-Charlotte. “She has gone home and she died peacefully in her sleep with my sister at her side and, so there’s great joy as well as tears. I’m not going to talk about it took long, because it’s hard a little to talk about.”

“She was somebody who was a very humble person and a very plainspoken person. She’s one of those quiet heroes that we have all across America who – they’re not famous, their names aren’t in the newspapers, but each and everyday they work hard,” he said, adding that there were a lot of quiet heroes like this in the crowd who sacrificed to give their children and grandchildren a better life, something he has said his grandmother did for him..

“That’s what America’s about.”
