Live Long and Prosper: Saying Goodbye to an Icon

Today, Leonard Nemoy passed away after a long fight with COPD.

2014-2015 has been bitter sweet. We have lost legends of the Geekdom. Harold Ramis, Robin Williams, and now we have lost Leonard Nemoy.

He will forever be immortalized as Mr. Spock from Star Trek and he will be missed.

I’m not nearly as emotional this time as I was with Harold Ramis or with Robin Williams, but I still feel the loss. I feel sad for the Trekkies for whom Star Trek defined their childhoods and then their adulthoods. You’ve definitely lost something you can never get back, but as Leonard Nemoy himself said so eloquently in his last Tweet: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”
