"Geologists have a saying: rocks remember."
For his final task on the Moon, Neil left a small package filled with items memorializing previously deceased pioneers in space exploration, including Soviet cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, and Apollo 1 astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee.
Now it's Neil's turn, and our turn to memorialize him.
His family released the following statement:
"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."
God bless you, Neil, rest in peace and Godspeed.
