You've summed it up perfectly for me as well, though they have been a big part of my life since I was five years-old. I've periodically pondered losing the remaining TOS cast. Time waits for no one. Nimoy may have looked and sounded good three, four years ago on Fringe....but at his advanced age sometimes it just sneaks up on you suddenly.

My thoughts exactly. Down to every word you wrote!
Me too!
I must agree as well, I have watched these two actors since I was six. I had no idea that Leonard ever smoked at all.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

I wish him the best, but as stated, time spares no man.

On the other hand I just saw "Shatners World" on stage.

He did 2 hours non stop, by himself. He was singing and dancing and at one point he picked up his office chair and was waiving it over his head.

not bad for an 82 year old.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

I'm stating the obvious of course, but if any of us are lucky enough to become octogenarians, our state of health will be a combination of genetics and our current/antecedent lifestyle. Infirm or sprightly - who knows?

Still, it's going to be very, very sad to see my heroes inevitably passing away. I wish Mr. Nimoy the very best.

All the chances I had to see him when he came to Toronto, now all about to be gone.

Be as well as you can, Mister Nimoy, and remember, this fan will always love you and love what you did in your career.

My sister smokes, and I'd wish she'd quit. I hope that you get your girlfriend to do so.

Leonard Nimoy has COPD

I'm very surprised this has not been discussed here? (in all the searches I've done)

Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy has revealed that is suffering from lung disease

"I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP," the living legend tweeted, adding his signature abbreviation for the half-Vulcan's "Live long and prosper" motto.
Heres hoping he lives long and prosper's

Same here.

We need to recall that for anyone fans of people with active, adult years in the 1940s - 1960s, chances are, they are well into the so-named twilight years, or have already passed on. Fans--far younger--will see it as "so many people going," but again, many of our childhood heroes were already in their 30s, 40s or 50s when we were barely out of diapers.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

Both Shatner and Nimoy are three months older than my dad. I think this may have something to do with how well I've related to them over the years, as entertainment-based father figure avatars. It's difficult to accept just how close I am to losing not one, but all three. On those days I will be very sad.

Nimoy has always been an inspiration to me. I think it is great he is using twitter to warn people about the dangers of smoking. I hope he's around for many more years to come.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

Just saw Leonard Nimoy on Piers Morgan. He sounded like his usual self and looked pretty good, a far cry from the sickly man in the wheel chair that we saw in the pic when this was first announced. Hopefully the interview will pop on the 'net in the next day or so.

He says that he carries around a machine that extracts oxygen from the air and he finds that he needs to use it a few times a day whenever he can't catch his breath.

[Edit] Here's an article and a clip.
