He died today at the age of 83. This one's a lot more upsetting for me than the average celebrity death. This feels more like loosing someone you actually know. Spock is such an important character in sci-fi fandom, and Nimoy always seemed to be a really cool guy. He will be missed.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP
