Another Great Leaves Us.. How Can You Not Feel Old?

Its another sad day in the world of Trek. And beyond. Ricardo Montalban has passed away at the age of 88.

Shock cannot begin to describe my feelings these days. Shame is another feeling. Why? I confess I'm embarrased to admit that I only know of Mr. Montalban's roles in Fantasy Island, Star Trek, and The Naked Gun. There is so much more to this Mexican born actor.

Less than one month ago, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry left us. Today, Ricardo Montalban. Meanwhile one of my best friends turned 40 today, another good friend is rumored to retire from work soon. My parents, aunts, and uncles certainly are not getting any younger. I have an extraordinary grandmother turning 90 this year. So much is changing and I'm finding it difficult not to feel old.. *sigh*

Click here for a neat video tribute from several years ago. And here is an MSNBC article which does a great job at giving an overview of his wonderful career.
