      Sad occasion - but great to see Michael and Buzz marking Neil's life and achievements - especially their shared fantastic voyage of discovery.

      I'm 58. Grown man. Neil's departure made me cry. This picture of Mike Collins and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin makes me happy and I still have wet eyes. The Apollo flights gave me life, hope and reason for studying mathematics and physics. Thank you Neil, Buzz and Mike. Because of you people I learned something of our universe. Eternal gratitude for being mentors and eye openers.

      This is a lovely picture. Just as I would expect it. Thanks to Neil for inspiring us all, and for Buzz and Michael for being a part of such an historic time in the world's history. I am glad they were together to celebrate his life.

      Since his first epic step upon another world, Neil Armstrong has been much more than a brave astronaut and a genuine hero. His life has epitomized all of the great qualities that all humans should strive for; a humble persona, quiet dedication, incredible courage, and an indomitable can-do spirit, something that will serve as a guiding light for the many future explorers and spacefarers to follow. His name and his achievement are burned indelibly into the pages of history for all time. On the day he was memorialized it is quite fitting and appropriate that every human can look up at a bright 'blue moon' and think of him standing there. I must admit I cried a little today... the world has lost a true giant.
      Rest in Peace Mr. Armstrong.
