Neil Armstrong passed away this afternoon. 

Here’s his family’s statement, which ends with these words:
“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.”
Tonight, wink at the moon. Feel free to leave your memories of Neil in the comments section. 
Rest in peace, Neil. Always loved, always missed. 
“Goodnight, Moon.” Mike Collins, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong wave to crowds, 1969.
