He then added, “I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried.”

So Shatner suggested that people come together on Sunday to “celebrate Nimoy’s life. On that he posted, “So maybe tomorrow we come together here and celebrate his life.” And then, “So let’s spend some time tomorrow celebrating Leonard’s life and remembering the man.”

Captain Kirk also reposted his original tweet on his friend’s death which read, “ICYMI: I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”
