In Memoriam: Leonard Simon Nimoy, 1931-2015

After several reports on the web, The New York Times has confirmed it: Actor, director, author, photographer and singer Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83 of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at his Los Angeles, CA home. The full story is here.

Most of you reading this already know what a significant figure he was in my life and why, so I won't bother rehashing his career and achievements here. I only wish I'd finally gotten to meet him before this sad day. Deepest sympathies to his widow Susan and the rest of his family, friends, colleagues and fans...and thank you, sir, wherever your soul may now be.

I grieve with thee...
"He's really not dead, as long as we remember him."

I'm not sure I believe that, but it offers me some measure of consolation.
