Quintin Upshire -#WeHeartQandU

If you ever had the chance to be in his presence and converse with him, you know that Q loved God, he loved his wife, Utopia A. Upshire, and he loved their coming son, Quintin Sinclair Upshire II. We rejoice in his life and celebrate that he is with God now, even as we mourn the loss of his physical presence here with us. Nothing we give can ever come close to making up for that because his personality, his character, and the quality of man that he was is truly beyond measure. But if you are moved to give of your time, your resources, your support, your love, we are so incredibly thankful to you and we ask that you would continue to keep Utopia, Baby Q, and all of the people that loved Quintin in your good thoughts and prayers.
