William Shatner 'Can't Make It' to Nimoy's Service Says he 'feels awful,' proposes online gathering By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Feb 28, 2015 3:34 PM CST 159 comments Comments William Shatner last year. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) (Newser) – One familiar face who apparently won't be appearing at Spock's funeral: Kirk. William Shatner tweeted today that he "can't make it" to Leonard Nimoy's memorial service tomorrow because he's currently in Florida doing charity work, Gawker reports. Noting that he had "agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight," Shatner added: "I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried." He suggested an online event tomorrow instead. "Maybe tomorrow we come together here and celebrate his life," he wrote.
