Military Funeral Planned for Sherman Hemsley

Actor Sherman Hemsley will be laid to rest at a military funeral nearly four months after this death...

Sherman Hemsley died back in July after a battle with lung cancer, but his burial was held up while a long lost brother contested his will [click here if you missed that].

Last week a judge in Texas ruled the will valid [click here if you missed that] and now plans are being made for a military funeral and burial at Fort Bliss National Cemetery in El Paso, Texas.

Sherman Hemsley served in the US Air Force before his acting career.

A date for the service has not been released.

Thank you!!!! Although his spirit has since left his body, he can finally be laid to rest!

RIP!!! Sherman "aka George Jefferson" Hemsley.

It's bullshit that some long lost "brother" contesting his will could affect the timing of him being laid to rest. Bullshit.

"Praise The Lord"

Without faith there can be no salvation, it is the first necessary step to have a relationship with God! Man is really left with only two choices.

1. Have faith only in those things we know and see … or,

2.Have faith in God!
Faith moves us right into fellowship with God and then we find the happiness that allows us to conquer everything this world can throw at us!

Without faith there can be NO relationship with God! Each man and woman, each child must decide: "Will I believe or not believe?
Romans 10:17
King James Version (KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Hebrews 11:6
New King James Version (NKJV)
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
Beans don't burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin',
Just to get up that hill.
Now we're up in the big leagues,
Gettin' our turn at bat.
As long as we live, it's you and me baby,
There ain't nothin wrong with that.

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

One of the true entertainers of the last 40 years , under appreciated and marginalized by Hollyweird but was still able to stamp his legacy and the industry.

I see him doing his George Jefferson strut through the Pearly Gates while Moving On Up plays in the background announcing his arrival. It is so true , you never truly appreciate someone until they are gone.

This right here and James Brown's death. People get your wills in order! Fuck that wi or new iPhone or whatever you're about to spend a couple hundred on. Find an attorney and get your will together and name an executor. Your ass will be laid up somewhere for 3 months while your asshole (and you know they assholes) relatives fight over everything from your house to your china.
