Today we say farewell to Leonard Nimoy, one of the most recognized and loved people in our history, who’s character Spock from my lifetime love Star Trek has not only influence myself but countless generations and countless generations to come.
We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.
I have been, and always shall be, your friend.
Space the final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life forms and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.
– Leonard Nimoy
Truly sad to hear the passing of Leonard Nimoy. Thank you for creating one of the most beloved character in Spock. Your memory will Live Long And Prosper in my heart.

Spock: The ship… out of danger?
Spock: Do not grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many, outweigh…
Kirk: The needs of the few.
Spock: Or the one. I never took the Kobayashi Maru test until now. What do you think of my solution?
Spock: I have been, and always shall be, your friend.
Spock: Live long and prosper.
Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015
Live Long and Prosper
