    Pure, unadulterated class.

    His humility allowed him to fly near the sun and not have his wings melt away.

    One of the last, great heroes, with genuine humility and bravery. God speed on your journey! Thank you for raising our eyes and hearts to the skies.
    I'll never forget that day in '69 or you.
    You hand flew that craft to the surface of the moon! Only people who have piloted airships can truly appreciate that skill and grace. Amazing. Amazing.

    He, and all of the other astronauts, fired my imagination when I was young. But it was his humble and unassuming life after the moon landing that made this man a great man in my view. He did his job and went on to teach others. Humanity at its best.

    Second star to the right, and on until morning..
