Despite plans to have Gary Coleman's body laid to rest this weekend, a family feud between ex-wife Shannon Price and Gary's parents has put the Utah funeral on hold until further notice.
Sue and Willie Coleman are planning on filing an action for legal control over their son's remains and would like to see his body sent to Zion, Illinois, his place of birth.
Their lawyers have stated:
"The Colemans don't want to fight with anyone. They just want to bring their son home."
Gary's agent Sheila Erickson is telling a different story though, saying that the couple have "different plans than what is in Gary's will. It's clear that Shannon is the one that Gary wants to represent him, as she did in the hospital. He didn't mention, at any time, his parents."
Meanwhile, Gary's attorney is saying that "no one's come forward with what appears to be a valid will. He had an old trust prepared, by whom I don't know. Every copy was unsigned. He just simply wouldn't take the time to go and get that done."
It's so sad that even after his death, he's still having so many troubles with family and finances.
