Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, died today.  I lost a hero today.  Our country and the world has lost a humble hero, a brave, quick thinker and a friend with a life-long, pristine reputation.  I watched the Moon landing from the hospital where my wife had just given birth to our first son.  Twenty years later, I had the privilege of meeting him and I will always cherish the photo taken with Neil and the Apollo-11 Team at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in 1989.  We will always remember you Neil Armstrong….the lasting impression you made upon the Earth and your first impression on the Moon.  Godspeed and RIP.
