Thanks for being an all American hero and an inspiration for all. I wish your family all the best in coping with this loss. RIP Neil.
You have inspired generations and people all over the world. For that, I will never forget you. RIP Mr Armstrong, you will be missed.
As a kid growing up remember being glued to the screen during all the lunar adventures. Like all boys I wanted to be an astronaut too. Although I didn't become one, I have been inspired no end by these awesome guys. Thanks Neil, RIP.
