MY FIGHTING FAMILY WON’T BURY ME
Sherman Hemsley died at his home in El Paso, Texas on July 24. But three months on, the star of the CBS series “The Jeffersons” has yet to be laid to rest as the beneficiaries of his will, and even his cause of death, have been called into question. A worker at the San Jose Funeral Home in El Paso, Texas confirms Hemsley is still at the home, and that they are waiting for a court order telling them what to do with his body. Hemsley’s former manager and self-proclaimed business partner and live-in best friend Flora Enchinton – and a Philadelphia man, Richard Thornton, who claims to be the actor’s brother – and . Reverend Michael George Wells, a minister at Arch Street United Methodist Church, who claims to be a cousin on Hemsley’s mother’s side – are battling over Hemsley’s estate.
