FAMILY STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEATH OF NEIL ARMSTRONG

The following is a statement from the Armstrong family regarding the
death of former test pilot and NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong. He was
82.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed
away following complications resulting from cardiovascular
procedures.

Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.

Neil Armstrong was also a reluctant American hero who always believed
he was just doing his job. He served his Nation proudly, as a navy
fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut. He also found success back
home in his native Ohio in business and academia, and became a
community leader in Cincinnati.

He remained an advocate of aviation and exploration throughout his
life and never lost his boyhood wonder of these pursuits.

As much as Neil cherished his privacy, he always appreciated the
expressions of good will from people around the world and from all
walks of life.

While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his
remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people
around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be
willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a
cause greater than themselves.

For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple
request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty,
and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon
smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.

      No dai non è vero.
      Il mitico Buzz è sempre sulla cresta.
      Al massimo hai un poco di ragione su Collins ma dai, l’americano dé Roma …. 😉
      L’unico “Italiano” (beh, quasi) che è stato sulla luna (beh, quasi) !
