Heartfelt and candid handwritten signed recollection by William Shatner on his ''Star Trek'' colleague, DeForest Kelley. Shatner is impressed with Kelley's ability to control his ego during the heady fame-filled years of ''Star Trek'': ''Deforest Kelley was a dear, gentle, lovely soul to me. He didn't have to try - that's who he was lovely and intelligent. He drove a car that was so old, it was a relic - He lived in the same house for years and years - no matter whether his fortunes waned or grew, he remained the same - same house, same car, even the same clothes - he was not a disciple of fads. And most importantly, he loved the same lady all his life. That was the most remarkable thing about Deforest - his marriage was so solid - he married his best friend. She went early when he died - they shared the same fortune. To me, he was enviable. She made him meals - sometimes he brown bagged it to the studio - He had this little dog - little dogs live longer than big dogs, in fact - they can live twice as long - my dog would live their appointed time, maybe a decade - His dog went on forever - and so it seemed, would Deforest and his wife - Not to be. They grew sick together he and his wife - They went to the actor's home together - and together they got Alzheimers. They declined together - now they were in separate rooms - but still together - They died very soon after each other - What a strange, wonderful life they had - I still marvel at it. / William Shatner''.
