"As a boy, because I was born and raised in Ohio, about 60 miles north of Dayton, the legends of the Wrights have been in my memories as long as I can remember."—Neil Armstrong
"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."—the family of Neil Armstrong
"Neil Armstrong was the spiritual repository of spacefaring dreams and ambitions. In death, a little bit of us all dies with him."—Neil deGrasse Tyson
 "Neil Armstrong was a hero not just of his time, but of all time. Thank you, Neil, for showing us the power of one small step."—President Barack Obama

    1. Thank you so much Doug. :) I immediately thought of "Goodnight Moon" when I heard of his passing. Every time I read about Neil Armstrong, just can't help but get goosebumps and a bit teary eyed.
