Sherman Hemsley Will Upheld


Nearly four months after his death from complications due to lung cancer actor Sherman Hemsley can finally be laid to rest...

Sherman Hemsley's burial had been delayed after his long lost brother, Richard Thornton from Philadelphia, contested Sherman's will which left everything to his manager Flora Enchinton.

Richard was ordered to submit DNA which did prove he was Sherman's half brother, but the results were submitted after the deadline, so they were not considered in the judgement.

Richard plans to contest the ruling.

Thank God finally!...This is a good idea though if you need time to scrap up some burial money.

12:09 never lookd at it like that. Figures bruh was just been greedy. Whatever the case, I'm glad George Jefferson can be laid to rest! A f I'm kinda sad regarding the circumstance of his death- not necessarily the lung cancer, but that he had no one close around him. No kids, family or friends.

PRAISE THE LORD MORNING NOON AND NIGHT.....THIS IS A GREAT RULING BY THE JUDGE. PEOPLE NEED TO QUIT DOING ANY AND EVERYTHING FOR MONEY. THIS MAN CAN FINALLY BE LAID TO REST.******RIP!

BROKEN PROMISES....HAVE YOU EVER BEEN PROMISE SOMETHING BY A HUMAN BEING, ONLY TO BE LET DOWN?

" WELL, WHEN GOD MAKE A PROMISE HE WILL ALWAYS FULFILL HIS PROMISES ALWAYS".
******************************************

THERE ARE SO MANY- PROMISES FROM GOD FROM GENESIS TO REVELATIONS, BUT I WILL JUST POST A FEW. WHENEVER YOU ARE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING IN LIFE ALWAYS KEEP THE FAITH, TALK TO GOD AND SAY HEAVENLY FATHER, I HAVE FAITH IN WHATEVER SITUATION IT IS, THEN READ GOD WHAT HE PROMISED IN HIS WORD.

**
PHILIPPIANS- 4:19
AND THE SAME GOD THAT TAKES CARE OF ME WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS FROM HIS GLORIOUS RICHES,WHICH HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO US IN CHRIST JESUS.
**********************************

PROVERBS-1:33

BUT ALL WHO LISTENS TO ME WILL LIVE IN PEACE, "UNTROUBLED BY FEAR OR HARM".
**********************************

ROMANS- 10:9

IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT JESUS IS LORD AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED. GOD KNOWS THE HEART SO YOU CAN NOT DECEIVE GOD. THERE ARE SO MANY---MANY MORE PROMISES THAT GOD HAS PROMISED HIS CHILDREN IN THE HOLY BIBLE.

****
<< 2 CORINTHIANS...1:20.****NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION..I POSTED THIS BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND KJV...I KNOW SCRIPTURES THAT I POST HELP SOME I KNOW NOT THE DEVILS-DEMONS.
*****
FOR NO MATTER HOW MANY PROMISES GOD HAS MADE, THEY ARE "YES" IN CHRIST. AND SO THROUGH HIM THE "AMEN" IS SPOKEN BY US TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

Good. He left his money to the person who had his back. Amen

as long as hemsley was of sound mind when he made the will, and his manager did not commit fraud, i just don't see any basis for this long-lost half brother contesting the will. we leave our money, etc. to whomever we choose, and not necessarily family.

You're not saving money though. If the body is left in the morgue you may not have to pay initially but they're not going to hold it for too long. They'll send it to a funeral home which will then add holding fees before they do a funeral or release the body or they'll get paid by the morgue to bury the person in a paupers grave.

Sherman probably had more money but he probably slowly diverted it to his partner over the last couple months. That way he gets around inheritance tax and having to deal with the family going after the partners cut. The money going to the manager is just what's left over and enough so that the family and court doesn't start digging to figure out where the rest of the money went.

They should honor his will and go sit down somewhere. Part of my job is dealing with a protecting the assets of deceased people and I can't tell you all how many people who are honest 99% of the time lose their last mind over money when a family member dies. People do some dirty and illegal things.

*******************
You capitalize the "G" in God because It is supposed to be out of respect.
It's not good to lowercase the g in God if you're a believer. Another reason could be,
To distinguish the one true God from the other minor gods or angels.

I'm glad that 'George' can finally REST after all this foolishness!! His estate was $50,000. STOP being greedy. There was a reason you all weren't in touch for so long. Just let it go.

You don't and didn't capitalize the "g" in God.

That's my point. Why did you not capitalize the g.
