I think this man had an awesome sense of humor and wanted to share my sympathies with his family on the loss of what is obviously a light in their lives. I am sorry for the diatribe a few folks have left who are very anxious to vote for Hillary. Rest assured my family is not part of that group either.

I'll admit, when I saw the new trending about the Hillary Clinton comment, it made me smile. It is a rare thing to be able to make people smile from something so sad. However, I believe that by making his political convictions part of his final memory, he will be remembered by more. What a blessing to make a stranger smile as his last memory! I hope you find this as a comfort. He will be remembered. God bless you and I pray you find peace in your loss. P.S. I also will not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016."

"Thoughts and prayers for you and your family and I will honor your request not to vote for Hillary. Obama damaged America as he defined he would in his books by Downsizing America and Defeating Colonialism Once and for all. Hillary would continue on Obama's destructive path and continue to make America a joke in the world. America needs another Reagan - a strong leader with global respect which America hasn't had in 8 years. Unfortunately, today's majority are uneducated and illiterate and feel they are entitled by the government and these are the people who are responsible for what America has become."

"My deepest condolences on your husband/father/grandfather/friend. I did not know him but he sounds like a wonderful kind-hearted man who truly looked out for his family & country. I hope he is getting a good laugh in Heaven. I hope you also find comfort in knowing his legacy has sparked family conversations around the nation. Politics is so often taboo, even amongst family. Regardless of position Mr. Upright has clearly broken through that barrier in life and now in death. Good heartfelt conversation is what this country needs and it is very fitting that it came courtesy of Mr. Upright. God works in mysterious ways. Many children were helped by this kind, charitable man in his work with Shriners. Many more will be helped with his legacy, if none other than to voice your opinions. Rest in peace Mr. Upright. Rest in peace."

Sadly humility, integrity and morality are sorely lacking today at the cost of our families and our children, whom are left with no role models of good character here is where his absence will be greatly missed. Our country is in dire need of more men and women of good character. Clearly an honest, hardworking man that placed love of family, honour and integrity first. Your request Mr. Upright illustrates your intention, to protect your family and America from a very greedy and dishonest women. Dear Mr. Upright, I too will honour your request by not voting for Mrs. Clinton, she is not for the people she is a cruel human being, greedy, arrogant and twisted.
