I just got this email from Roddenberry.com [Frown]

Dear Friends of Roddenberry Productions,

We regret to inform you of Majel Barrett Roddenberry' s passing away early
this morning, due to a short battle with Leukemia. She was surrounded by
her family and close friends and passed away peacefully.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name
to the CARE Organization or Precious Paws both of which share Roddenberry' s
love for animals and dedication to animal rescue.

Funeral details are pending and a public memorial will be scheduled sometime
after Christmas or in early 2009.

With deep sadness,
Roddenberry Productions

The time I got to chat with her at a con is a treasured memory. How sad to know that lovely, gracious, funny lady is here no more.

Rest in peace, Majel.

[Cry]

Every time I hear her voice in the new movie, I might cry.

Oh no! She's the voice of Starfleet. The voice of Star Trek maybe even. She seemed like a real dame, and she'll be greatly missed.

A few days ago, I was very pleased to hear that she was going to be included in the new movie. I guess now there'll be a dedication in the credits.

She was not only a successful actress but also had what is probably one of the most widely recognised voices in the english speaking world.
It's a shame to think we won't be hearing her anymore.
