This guy wanted the last laugh. But is it funny or just a sad commentary on politics today?
WSOC-TV reported that a Cabarrus County man who died last week, Larry Upright, 81, had one final request for his family. So the obituary they wrote concludes: “Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy.”
The family told WSOC it was all in good fun. The story described Mr. Upright as “a diehard Republican” (no pun intended).
His son said, “We know he’s up there giggling right now. Just laughing out loud.”
Well, good for him. But, if I live to be 81, I hope my family finds something to say other than urging you to vote against some politician.
Besides, Hillary may yet get the last laugh.
