In the words of Lebron James: “It’s about damn time!”
Sherman Hemsley Will Be Buried In A Military Funeral

Three-and-a-half months after Sherman Hemsley’s death from lung cancer, an El Paso, Texas court finally put an end to the bickering over his estate – and body – on Friday.
“It is taken care of. It has been ruled on my behalf, and how Sherman wanted,” Flora 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, who was a manager and the self-proclaimed best friend of the late “Jeffersons” star was listed as beneficiary on the will, which was drafted six weeks before he died. However, Hemsley remained on ice at a local El Paso funeral home for an extended period of time because Richard Thornton, a man claiming to be the actor’s half-brother, challenged its validity.
A lawyer for Enchinton confirmed that a military funeral is now being planned for Hemsley, who served in the United States Air Force for four years before pursuing a career in acting.
“My client is planning on a military funeral for Mr. Hemsley at Fort Bliss National Cemetery here in El Paso. Mr. Hemsley previously served in the United States Air Force and thus is eligible for a military funeral,” said attorney Alexander Neill. “At the present we are waiting for all of the final orders to be entered by the Court so the funeral plans can proceed.”
After all this posthumous foolishness, Sherman can rest in peace, and move on up.
