Gary Coleman‘s former girlfriend Anna Gray paid her last respects to the Diff’rent Strokes star Wednesday, paving the way for the actor’s body to be finally cremated either Thursday or Friday, RadarOnline.com can report.
Dressed in black, Gray left Memorial Mortuary in Murray, Utah Wednesday afternoon after a private viewing of Coleman’s body. Only KTVX-TV, the ABC affiliate in Provo, Utah captured video of Gray paying her last respects.

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Gray was named in a 2005 will as the executor and beneficiary to Coleman’s estate.
Gray’s lawyer told RadarOnline.com that she dated Coleman for a number of years, before he married Shannon Price.
“They (Gray and Coleman) were good friends, worked together and had a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship for quite a while,” Gray’s attorney Randy Kester told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
Gray and Coleman split up when the actor met and married Price, Kester said. (Coleman and Price later secretly divorced).
“I don’t know the nature of the ending of the relationship other than I know Ms. Price was the cause of the break-up,” Kester told RadarOnline.com.
The will, filed with 4th District Court in Provo, Utah, names Gray as executor.
If valid, it supersedes the 1999 will already entered for probate by the actor’s former manager, Dion Mial.
Kester, who was also Coleman’s attorney during his divorce to Price, said the 2005 will also nullify the handwritten codicil (amendment to a will) that gives all assets to his ex-wife Shannon Price, including Coleman’s $315,000 home in Santaquin, Utah.
Kester said, “By operation of Utah law, when they divorced, that terminates the effectiveness of the codicil.”
“Of all the papers that I have seen, this is the one prepared and filed without being influenced by the one who is designated as being the beneficiary.”
Price is currently contesting the will.
