image HOUSTON - "It is with deep personal sadness that I, along with this nation, mourn the death of Neil Armstrong. Neil was a humble and personable man who although he was the first man to walk on the moon, he never asserted his own ego into a conversation. Neil will always be remembered for the inspiration he gave to all of us to press on and to achieve our own personal greatness. He was the personification of the Giant Leap for mankind. Neil was not only a gentleman he was a gentle man. Thank you Neil for a life well lived. You will always be an inspiration."
