I was mighty sorry to hear of this...One of the heroes of my middle years.

RIP, Neil Armstrong.

It seems like we've been losing a lot of our heroes and entertainers lately.

When he retired, he never cashed in on his fame. No books, public appearances, etc. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I remember being at a group picnic (my Dad's Lion's Club I think) and everyone brought a radio. Being at a lake under a tree on a blanket listening to that first moon walk. I was young but it was not lost on me at all. Those famous words became his legacy and yet he remained humble till the end.

RIP Neil Armstrong.

I am related to Buzz--the two of them made history together. R.I.P. Neil.

I know of someone who took his first steps on Earth to get closer to the television when Neil took his first steps on the moon.

Neil Armstrong inspired so many. I'm sad to hear of his passing.
