Nimoy passed away earlier this year, devastating legions of fans and friends. By all accounts he was a beautiful, brilliant soul. Shatner’s grief was well documented, and he said about his friend’s passing: “I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”
