A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

Nimoy was famous for playing Spock in the "Star Trek" series, first on television and then in many of the film adaptations. He was an artist away from camera, delving into photography, music and poetry. Nimoy published numerous collections of his poems, including 2002's A Lifetime of Love: Poems on the Passages of Life.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told the New York Times Nimoy's cause of death was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83 years old.
