Well we’re movin’ on up,
To the east side,
To a deluxe apartment in the sky,
Movin’ on up,
To the east side,
We finally got a piece of the pie,

Fish don’t fry in the kitchen,
Beans don’t burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin’,
Just to get up that hill,
Now we’re up in the big leagues,
Gettin’ our turn at bat,
As long as we live, it’s you and me baby,
There ain’t nothin wrong with that…

American actor, Sherman Hemsley, passed away of natural causes today on July 24, 2012, at the age of 74 at his home in El Paso, Texas. The Harlem-born charismatic and diminutive Hemsley was widely known for his memorable role as George Jefferson on the CBS series All in the Family and The Jeffersons, which ran for eleven season.

The noteworthy comedic actor will be missed.

Hope you’re digging that deluxe apartment in the sky, Sherman.
