To Mr. Doohan

You shall be missed. I know that while I loved your character on Star Trek, the things I honor you for the most is your voiceover work in most of the cartoons I watched as a child. I just found out about your military service, and the fact that you retrained as a pilot when you weren’t allowed to fight on the ground after losing a finger.

I saw you speak at one little Sci-Fi con in Atlanta. I enjoyed hearing you. The anecdotes you told were very entertaining and I wish I could remember some.

In a way I’m glad you are not with us anymore. While I will miss you and your talent and integrity, Alsheimer’s Syndrome can be a hell of a way to die. I’m glad you are spared that now.

Be at peace my friend.
