I miss your smile, I miss your hugs. I am very honored to have known you, you are and always will be the most kind and welcoming woman I have ever known. You set a standard for me to follow in how to be loving and warmhearted, especially in your ceaseless devotion to your family and friends. Thank you for being YOU. You have tremendously touched and blessed me, and a great many others. Rest in heaven <3

To Carolyn, Sylvia, and the entire Upshaw family. On behalf of me & the entire Anderson and Woods family, on behalf of the entire Carey Street & the community, and on behalf of the EC Washington High School Class of 1969 we extend to you our deepest heartfelt sympathy in the loss of Mrs. Upshaw. May the Lord keep you and comfort you in your hours of bereavement & sorrow and may heaven smile upon you. I find myself so grieved in spirit at the homegoing of Mrs. Upshaw. I loved her so so very much. She touched my life more than 50 years ago as a small poor child in such a significant and profound way. When we would visit Carolyn and Sylvia, Mrs. Upshaw would see to it that she would have a cake for us to eat. Not a cupcake, a "cake". She was so beautiful, so kind and so loving. She never frowned upon us or got tired of us. She smiled and treated us warmly. She embraced us and we never really knew or understood why. But to know that she was the youngest of 14 children, we know for certain"she understood".WE loved and respected Mr. and Mrs.Upshaw so much. Mr. Upshaw we adored and reverenced so, for he was a practicing pharmacist at a time when it was unheard of. They weren't even let us into colleges and universities yet, not even on quotas. They both were always so consistently good to us. I'd like to think that she was a part of that "village" that helped to raise a poor child. Her legacy lives on in all of us who are of a grateful spirit and who know not to take anyone or anything for granted. We celebrate the life of Mrs. Upshaw (and Mr. Upshaw) because we can celebrate one without celebrating the other. They will always hold a very special place in my heart and in all of our hearts. You all are a family of high academic achievements and honor. You make us all proud, but yet humbled. We love you Carolyn, Sylvia, Cynthia and Karen. We are here for you. You are not alone. God bless you exceedingly and abundantly above anything you can even ask or think, in the mightly and precious name of Jesus.

Sylvia, Carolyn, Cynthia and Karen: My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. Your mother was a beautiful person: inside and out. I will keep you in my prayers. He will keep them in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him: because he trusts in Him. God bless, Dawn Dawkins

Affectionately known as Aunt Vivian, Vivian Upshaw was mothers best friend -- from childhood to the very end. I only have the fondest of memories of Aunt Vivian and the entire Upshaw clan. May all of God's blessings be with one of the finest persons to every touch this earth -- and, may all of God's blessing be with Carolyn, Sylvia, Cynthia and Karen with love and deepest sympathy. We love you all.
