    Goodbye Mr. Spock

    They seem to be dropping like flies lately. I never met Leonard Nimoy, but I'm still going to miss him.

    didn't know he died?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Leonard Nimoy, Spock of 'Star Trek,' Dies at 83
    New York Times‎ - 2 hours ago
    Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as ...

    May we all live long and prosper. It was so good to see Mr Spock in the newer version of the Star Trek movies.

    Just think, finally, he is no longer earthbound. What a wonderful actor and person he was.

    I met Leonard Nimoy in the '80's at the Paramount Pictures offices. He was very cordial in our few minutes of conversation but what I wasn't prepared for was how extremely attractive he was. He had what used to be called "sex appeal" and sincere charm. As we shook hands I actually pulled my glasses off like a scene from a bad old movie LOL. RIP Mr. Nimoy.

    Mr. Nimoy was a 30 year smoker. I'll always remember him as Mr. Spock. He was a great actor. Live long and prosper!

    I almost feel like I lost a favorite uncle. I grew up watching "Star Trek" with my father who never missed it, so I have had Mr. Nimoy in my life forever! Live long and prosper Mr. Spock!

    We have really lost a lot of very talented people this past year, and they will all be remembered well. God Bless Leonard Nemoy and his roll as Spock

    Good bye, Mr. Spock.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    I come from a family of more than a few Trekies....And i've long since taught the 3 oldest grand-daughters all how to do the "live long and prosper" hand sign....the other 2 are under 18 months, so they will learn eventually !! He was an icon and will long long be remembered.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.
