Grace Lee Whitney RIP

Last night before I went to bed, I found out that Grace Lee Whitney passed away at 85.
Yeoman Rand, I will miss you.   The void you left on the Enterprise was never able to be filled.  You had the class to handle Kirk, yet the nerves of steel needed to stand up to Charlie X and walk away unscathed.  You had beauty,  and the best hair in the Star Trek universe.   You worked your way up to in rank and were there for some of the best moments in Star Trek history. 
I really enjoyed watching your friendship with Uhura and Sulu. You brought a lot to a character most people relegated a glorified background character. 
We lost Spock and Rand in the same year.  May she be remembered as fondly as he was because even if she wasn't on the show as long as he was, she was also a central part of the bridge crew.
