Neil Armstrong Dead at 82

This article appeared on Yahoo news today;

Neil Armstrong, one of the astronauts on Apollo 11 and the first man to ever step foot on the moon, has died at the age of 82, according to NBC News. Armstrong had heart surgery about three weeks ago. Things were fine at first. Carol Armstrong, his wife, told NBC News he was "doing great" a few days after the surgery. But MSNBC reports today that his death was caused by a complication that arose from the surgery.

I am saddened by this event as I was able to watch the Apollo 11 mission live on TV and remember it like it was yesterday.

I saw a good posting the other day that was about Neil Armstrong. It said:
It WAS one small step for man, But it was taken by a Giant man.
