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!!!

Just a few days ago, it was reported that Jean Claude Savoie ,the reptile shop owner will eventually return to Campbellton,New Brunswick from Montreal,Quebec to face charges(possibly at least negligent in nature) pertaining to the deaths of the 2 young brothers Connor and Noah Barthe due to strangulation from an African rock python .  Expected date of appearance at Campbellton  Regional Court will be on April 27,2015.

Today,Feb. 5,2015 , it was announced in the news media that an arrest on the deaths of the 2 boys Noah and Connor Barthe of Campbellton,New Brunswick,Canada had been made in Montreal,Quebec,Canada. Reports show that the reptile shop owner Jean-Claude Savoie was the person referred to in this latest arrest. His shop was the scene of the crime where his pet African rock python had strangled both young boys in their sleep. Autopsy findings confirmed this premise.

Apparently,Mr. Savoie moved to Montreal where he’s now based. Charges reportedly weren’t made yet and the investigation is still ongoing with no fixed timeline.. It’s not clear yet as to when he’ll be sent back to New Brunswick.
