but not preserved, except in memory.

  1. We were privileged to have him in our lives. LLAP indeed!

  2. And somehow we’ll always feel he’s still out there. Logical or not.

  3. You owe it to yourself to read the comments accompanying the New York Times story on Nimoy’s passing, especially the “NYT Picks.” Among his fans, there were no dry eyes today. But eloquence, reverence, gratitude in abundance.

  4. Leonard S. Nimoy will be missed, but not forgotten. Mr. Spock and much much more. Thank you for your gifts.

  5. Will definitely miss the very respected Mr. Nimoy. By the way, just in case you weren’t aware of the fact…
    Did you know Vulcans could also sing?

    Leonard Nimoy – Ruby, Don’t Take Your Guns To Town

    • LOL… Don’t know where the “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Guns To Town” came from! Must have been something I read on the Huffington Post website. 😀

      Should have said… “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town” but then I suspect you knew that!

    • Hmm, now we know why Nimoy stuck to acting. His rendition of “Proud Mary” was absolutely painful, including what sounded to me like “toinin'” and “boinin'” (at 2:09) for “turning” and “burning.” (Sounds like New Jersey accent to me, but maybe it’s Boston, where he was born.) Definitely cringeworthy.

      But we’ll always have Spock. Nimoy hated the typecasting, but he created an admirable, unforgettable character that the world loved and will love for a very long time.

      • You’re right about that song for sure. It certainly explains why he excelled in his acting abilities as compared to his singing. But I do suspect now that he was someone who must have really liked music.
