R.I.P. Sherman Hemsley

Sherman Hemsley died yesterday at the age of 74.  He will forever be known as "George Jefferson," the hilariously scheming dry cleaning business owner on "The Jefferson's" TV show in the 1970s' and 80's.  He and his wife Louise ("Weezie") were always good for a laugh.  Then he moved on to the TV show "Amen" where he starred as "Deacon Frye."  Hemsley played that hilarious character perfectly, as it shared the same ideas as George Jefferson did - clever schemes that always seemed never go right.

Rest in peace Sherman.  I hope your "deluxe apartment in the sky" is a "piece of the pie."
