So sad to hear this. He was a multi-talented man. I'm so happy that he came back to play Spock one last time for us.

A part of my youth just died as well.

I was lucky enough to see him twice in person - once on stage in Houston in the early 90's with William Shatner. They were hysterically funny together on stage, and so obviously good friends, having a good time. Nimoy was as kind as Shatner could be feisty. What a pair.

The second time was in Las Vegas, and he came to support Zachary Quinto who would some months after that convention, be seen as a Spock in the reboot film. It was like grandfather and grandson on stage.

Aye, I'll miss him. Spock's now giving Dr. McCoy and Scotty the eyebrow while Gene and Majel look on. *sniff*

I'm sad to hear Leonard Nimoy has passed away.I grew up watching the original Star Trek and it's one of my favorite Star trek tv series. I was so glad he appeared in the original Tos movies and the new trek movies too.

My brother called to tell me the news as I rarely turn it on. From his tone of voice I thought he was getting ready to tell me of the passing of a family member..... and then I realized he was. We grew up watching this show on endless reruns and marathons. We practiced the raised eyebrow, hand gestures, and the Vulcan neck pinch. I am saddened, but Nimoy lived a full life.

Peace and long life.

Spock was always my favorite.

I never met Mr. Nimoy but I'll miss him anyway, he always seemed to me like the kind of person who made things better just by being part of them.

He definitely lived long and prospered!

RIP Leonard, you will be sorely missed.

This appeared near me this weekend. (For those who know Atlanta: it's on South Atlanta Road just inside the Perimeter.)

lfvoy, that's beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.

Leonard Nimoys's passing is sad, but he lived a very full life. The many and varied tributes have been wonderful. I hope he realized what an impact he had and that the tributes give his family some comfort.
