There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Stars took to Twitter to pay tribute to Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on Friday at the age of 83.
Nimoy famously played Spock in Star Trek: The Original Series and movies, but made cameos in Star Trek: The Next Generation and even J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot films.
He was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering chest pains, and died this morning from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
He was also a noted poet, director, and a father of two.
"Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… Human." Farewell, Leonard Nimoy - Actor, Director, Pop culture icon.

I just saw that Leonard Nimoy has passed on. We didn't know each other well, but I'm glad I spent the time with him I did. A wonderful man.
