Mine too! When I first saw the document at http://www.msnbc.com/news/786202.asp 

had a moments thought that the illiam parts of both signatures was very similar.

However, I had to recall that there were times when my signature was very near 
own father's, also named James Swayze. This might be genetic or simply hero
worship, trying to be like dad, in my own case and John Henry's.

I was further convinced of this when looking at Ted's sig on his will. I assume
wills need to be sign before one's lawyer or at the very least a notary public,
yes? So it's unlikely that signature was forged by JH, correct? Now, despite

allegations of JH signing memorabilia for his dad if one looks at the baseball 

http://www.grandstandinc.com/pages/2280.htm and compares that signature with the
will and the one on the pact at
http://www.boston.com/sports/redsox/williams/july_25/side_by_side.htm several

things are noticeable. Mainly the T in Theodore from the will and in Ted from 
cryo pact note and the baseball are all obviously made by the same person.

Next the illiam part is identical in both documents and on the ball and an even
better match than JH's illiam that is prompting the speculation. The W is quite

similar in both will and pact and memorabilia and very different from JH's W. 

ending S is probably the most striking for concluding the same person signed all

considered documents. Furthermore, the memorabilia signatures while close to the
will are even more close to the pact. If the push to sign more memorabilia was
made in more recent years it's reasonable to assume his signature evolved

slightly, hence the pact and memorabilia matching each other more than they 
the will.

Here is a link to an art piece with his signature

Hopefully a true hand writing forensic expert will be involved and be wise 

to see more than just a few samples before making any judgments. I mean it's not
like there's a scarcity of samples.

On another note, here's another article about the fight for TW. Doncha just feel

so sorry for poor Ferrel, this lone protector of her father's guaranteed death? 
mean, those cruel cryogenetical people... jeeez... harrumph! How dare they
interfere with his peaceful death? It's just so gruesome to think of TW alive
again, can't a guy just die in pieces? Ewww ewww ewww, icky ick yuck!


Ok, I'm being a little sarcastic but this stupid 'person' (I have a better word)
just irks me. Ferrel, "I won't be bought off", sh'ya right and a squadron of

winged pigs just buzzed my window. She started this to get wiggled back into the
will Daddy left her out of and we know it. Now she's stuck because backing out
now will look really mercenary indeed.
