When I got the news that Leonard Nimoy aka Mr. Spock of Star Trek TV fame had passed away yesterday(February 27,2015) at 83 years of age due to the effects of COPD(chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), I felt sad. Spock’s character had touched the hearts of us humans probably because of his being half-human and half-Vulcan ancestry. His empathy of the human condition makes us assess ourselves in our own place in this world.
Mr. Nimoy is a multitalented individual, having been involved in acting, directing(for ex., the movie 3 Men and a Baby) ,movie producing,writing books and doing charity work.
One of his final tweets is in my opinion quite memorable….A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had but not preserved except in memory. LLAP(Long Live And Prosper).
You will be preserved in both everyone’s hearts and memories. With your famous Star Trek hand and finger salute(aka Vulcan salute), LLAP to you as well!
I could just imagine your dear friend Scotty also of Star Trek fame who went ahead of you to the pearly gates, to be already beaming you up to join him.
What a sight that would be!!!
