    William Shatner sent out a series of Tweets on Saturday expressing his grief over the loss of one his "dearest friends," Leonard Nimoy.

    Sadly, due to a prior commitment that poses a scheduling conflict, Shatner is unable to attend Nimoy's funeral on Sunday.

    "I am currently in FL as I agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight. Leonard's funeral is tomorrow. I can't make it back in time," heexplained, adding in another Tweet, "I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried."

    William Shatner will have to hire pall bearers.

    Seems so. He was always available to anyone that wanted to talk to him for years via interview until he hit it big a 4th time with Denny Crane. Then he became too important.

    I was always under the impression that he and Nimoy were really close. All the other cast hated him.


    On a positive note, George will take this opportunity to crack on Shatner, so we have that to look forward to.

    They were friends. Nimoy was the only one that could stand him on the set.

    It's logical - he doesn't want to cancel his charity obligation. Spock would have wanted it that way. :punk:

    Well, this is much better than the "invitation was lost in the mail" excuse for missing George Takai's wedding.

    I thought Bill was Mr. "Say Yes"! I guess that doesn't apply to close friends funerals...

    At least his prior commitment is for charity(I'm hoping) and not some stupid paintball tournament he's hosting.

    But he will send a beautiful deli platter to the wake of his dearest friend.
    Such a good person.

    I think Nimoy was one of the few who liked Shatner (Doohan hated him, IIRC, and I know Takei does).

    But having said that, Shatner is one of the biggest POS's out there. Wasn't be seen making out with some young broad days after his wife's funeral?

    bullshit a la Howard Stern...Nimoy wasn't relevant enough any more for Bill. I'd like to hear Takei's take on this one.
