Funeral Planned for Sherman Hemsley 3 Months After His Death

Sherman Hemsley funeral planned

Beloved actor Sherman Hemsley will be laid to rest six weeks after he died of lung cancer at age 64.

The actor’s body lay in cold storage for 3 and a half months while Hemsley’s estranged brother contested his will. DNA testing proved Richard Thornton was Hemsley’s brother. But on Friday, an El Paso, Texas judge refused to consider the DNA because Thornton missed a deadline to present his evidence.

A lawyer for Flora Enchinton, who was Hemsley’s manager and best friend, confirmed that Hemsley would be given a military funeral. The actor served in the United States Air Force.

“It is taken care of. It has been ruled on my behalf, and how Sherman wanted,” Enchinton told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “They were bringing up untrue facts, and it was sad because Sherman had to suffer for it.”

Enchinton was listed as beneficiary on Hemsley’s will which was drafted six weeks before he died. Hemsley’s estate was worth $50,000 at the time of his death.

      ReadingIsFundamental says:

      Two of our clients died within the same month. The family has been calling non-stop with threats. Look, these people wrote it out at the time of investing who the beneficiaries are and what to do if death occurs. Go sit your greedy as* down somewhere and GRIEVE for your loss. Stop trying to figure out if you will get some money. You were broke while they were alive so, were you just sitting around waiting for them to die so, you didn’t have to be broke anymore?

      Anyway, one client was of faith and the other was of the dirt mentality. My advisor tried to convince me that the one of faith went to heaven and the one of dirt went to hell. I told her to stay within her own faith and stop judging people’s fate. Only God has the power to grant Grace and you can’t say who he will and won’t give his Grace to. Both women might be pouring it up in heaven right now over how their families are acting. We don’t know.

      Indians do cook with alot of spices and if your not use to it then it can make your head hurt. Drink alot of clear fluids… your liver will take care of it for you. You can press your thump against the roof of your mouth and that will help too.

      Sandrarose you talk so much smack about everybody including our president. YOU, need to learn to proof read your articles. First you say Mr Hemsley is going to be buried 6 weeks after his death, then you go on to say he has been in storage for 3 1/2 months. Then you go on to say he was 64 when even you can google him and get his correct age and it was 74. You talk about Beyonce and her education, you talk about Fantasia and her education, now im starting to question yours!!!!

      Note to self: Dont throw stones while living in glass houses!!!!!
