Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the show (and movies) Star Trek, died on Friday, February 27, 2015.

Two important shows from my childhood were Speed Racer and Star Trek. (Gilligan’s Island was a third, but I’m almost through my therapy for that one.) My favorite character from Star Trek was Spock. Losing Nimoy (and Spock) is losing a piece of my childhood.
