Contrary to the executrix of his estate's wishes, the body of Sherman Hemsley remains locked up in the freezer of an El Paso funeral home!
The iconic television actor died over a month ago and they're keeping him on ice like a forgotten Hungry Man dinner!
Sherman's last will put Flora Enchinton in charge and she wants him to receive a proper burial!
She pleaded with anyone who would listen:
"It is disgraceful. It is sad. This was a man with dignity."
You're absolutely right, this is no way to treat the remains of any human being!
Unfortunately, a man who claims to be The Jeffersons star's brother is holding up the whole process!
Flora thinks he's a fraud, however.
"I have never heard of anyone with the name of Richard Thornton in the 20 years I have known Sherman. This is not what Sherman would have wanted."
An eternity on ice?? Nobody wants that!!
Except maybe Walt Disney… And Ted Williams.
Sherman was 74 when he passed away from lung cancer! last month.
