Majel Barret Roddenberry Passes Away

My heart broke a little bit with this news.

Majel Barret-Roddenberry, (widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry) died Thursday Dec. 18 due to Leukemia.

Roddenberry was involved in the "Star Trek" universe for more than four decades.

Personally, I really enjoyed her role as in Star Trek: The Next Generation as the Betazoid Ambassador Lwaxana Troi, mother of ship's counselor Deanna Troi.

She will be missed.

expanded details and anecdotes here at Yahoo and here at William Shatner remembers her as well on his video blog.
