“My friend Ed Nelson has passed. Too much sadness all in a bunch. Taking a pause and a deep breath.” Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy remembers his actor pal, who died on Saturday (09Aug14), aged 85. News of Nelson’s death emerged on Wednesday (13Aug14), a day after the passing of his Star Trek co-star Arlene Martel, and two days after the loss of Robin Williams. Movie great Lauren Bacall has also passed away this week.
