Michelle Obama latest news: The heartbreaking aftermath of father’s death | World | News

The former FLOTUS opened up on the topic in her hit 2018 book ‘Becoming’. Her father died in 1991 of multiple sclerosis in Chicago, Illinois. He was married to wife Marian Robinson, Michelle’s mother.

But in her book, the wife of former US President Barack Obama told the exact feelings she felt when she heard the news.

She said: “It hurts to live after someone has died. It just does.

“It can hurt to walk down a hallway or open the fridge.

“It hurts to put on a pair of socks, to brush your teeth.

“Food tastes like nothing. Colours go flat. Music hurts, and so do memories.

“You look at something you’d otherwise find beautiful – a purple sky at sunset or a playground full of kids – and it only somehow deepens the loss.

“Grief is so lonely this way.”

It comes after Michelle revealed why her father was fearful of her relationship with Barack.

She claimed that her dad said Barack wouldn’t last due to Michelle’s previous track record of dating.

She added: “My father appreciated Barack instantly, but still didn’t like his odds.

“After all, he’d seen me jettison my high school boyfriend David at the gates of Princeton.

“He’d watched me dismiss Kevin the college football players as soon as I’d seen him in a furry mascot outfit.

“My parents knew better than too get too attached.”
