SHERMAN HEMSLEY; AKA GEORGE JEFFERSON OF HIT 70’s SHOW ‘THE JEFFERSONS’ WILL FINALLY BE BURIED AFTER 4 MONTHS OF FAMILY FIGHTING OVER HIS WILL!!!

Sherman Hemsley; who starred in the TV sitcom, “The Jeffersons” can finally be laid to rest. The actor passed away on July 24 oflung cancer and his body has been help in an El Paso funeral home in cold storage ever since. Fox News reported on Nov. 9 that his will is valid. A Texas judge, Patricia B. Chew ruled over the case on Friday by siding with Flora Enchinton Bernal against the objections from Hemsley’s half-brotherRichard Thornton.

It is sad that we lost a great actor and a man who brought such laughter into homes all over the world in the end to be treated so poorly. The comedian’s remains having to wait over three months for a proper burial because Richard Thornton didn’t think Flora Bernal should have been left with total control over his half-brother’s estate was downright selfish.

Even though the DNA evidence was proven to true that Sherman and Thornton were half-brothers it seems a tragedy that this situation had to drag on for so long. Thornton didn’t think Sherman was sound in his mind when he drew up the paper for his last will and testimony. This also was proven to be false and he was cognizant when he signed the document and named Flora executrix of his estate worth over fifty million dollars.

An American Air Force veteran and actor who brought so much to the world through the characters he portrayed on television. His character as George Jefferson gave people hope of moving on and upwards along with so many laughs and easy-going entertainment. He studied under Lloyd Richards and appeared in many New York stage productions. Norman Lear, TV producer for “All in the Family” cast Hemsley himself and later created the “Jeffersons” as a spinoff. We will all remember Sherman Hemsley in our hearts forever.
