Gary Coleman's body cremated in Utah



Tbd-garycoleman062110 Unlike Michael Jackson, poor Gary Coleman has finally been laid to rest. Entertainment Tonight says he was cremated in a very private proceeding in Utah on Thursday. Oh Gary, we hardly knew ye.

"The proceeding was conducted in accordance with Mr. Coleman's desires as expressed in his will, that no funeral service, wake, or other ceremony memorialize his passing," Coleman's estate attorney, Robert Jeffs, told ET.

The cremation had been delayed for 48 hours because Anna Gray, the woman named executor of Gary's 2005 will, requested to see his body before it was cremated. Gary's ex-wife Shannon Price has opposed the request, claiming that a handwritten 2007 note made her the executor of his will. That was overruled, and Gary is still dead, so this all makes us very sad.
