# 1 Those that we miss now...

Some downtime today made me think. I was trying to figure out temporal theory, then I decided to hit YouTube and realized how much we miss certain key figures now more than ever.
Requiescat in pace DeForest Kelly.

Thanks for that. DeForest's passing just reinforced my own realization that eventually, all of the heroes I knew and loved as a child will be gone. Kelley's death was perhaps not a surprise, since he was older than the rest of the original crew. Then Doohan.

Edit: Just to satisfy my own curiosity:
Both Kelley and Doohan born in 1920.
Both Nimoy and Shatner born in 1931.
Nichelle Nichols in 1932.
Walter Koenig in 1936.
and George Takei in 1937.

Surprise! Chekov is not the youngest.
