Siblings met in late mother’s home just before it caught fire

The Charlotte Fire Department responded to a house fire Saturday afternoon.

Heavy smoke was showing from the home in the 400 block of Grandin Road.

Family members told reporter Alexa Ashwell the home belongs to their late mother and holds precious memories.

Fire officials said hose lines caused a slight drop in water pressure, an obstacle crews had to face in putting out the fire.

It appears the fire started in the back of the home. No one was inside at the time.

The woman's children said their mother passed about seven months ago and they had just met in the home to discuss what to do with the estate.

Shirley Jackson said 30 minutes after she left she received a call to come back because the house was on fire.

Fire officials told Channel 9 water lines did not hamper their response time to the fire, which was put out in 33 minutes.

Family members believe their memories could have been better salvaged if the historic district was not reconstructing its water lines.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported.

Man’s obituary asks people not to vote for Hillary Clinton

The family of a diehard Republican shared one final request in his obituary - to not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Larry Upright, 81, died at Carolinas Medical Center Northeast Monday night.

His request:

“Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy."

As the family wrote Upright’s obituary at the funeral home they thought it would be an appropriate message to include. Some people may find it silly, but family members said Upright enjoyed politics.

“He was very passionate about politics and probably passed a little of that on, so it was natural for me to think about that,” daughter Jill McLain said of putting the sentence in the obituary.

Upright was politically informed his whole life, but never involved in public office, according to family members.

“We have got some very sweet responses and some pretty nasty responses,” said Colleen Upright, his wife.

“We did this for him,” son Mike Upright said. “He had nothing to do with it other than voicing his opinion time after time after time.”

Upright, who enjoyed golfing, fishing and spending time with his family, was a diehard Republican.

“We know he’s up there giggling right now. Just laughing out loud,” Mike Upright said.
