William Shatner will not be attending the funeral for his Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy. In a tweet, he said that because he is scheduled to attend a Red Cross ball in Florida Saturday night, he won’t be able to make Nimoy’s Sunday memorial in California. This isn’t the first time Shatner has missed a big event: He was notably absent at George Takei’s wedding to his husband, Brad Altman. That said, he has some very lovely things to say about his old friend.
