Neil Armstrong - the Courageous Moon Walker

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, age 82, has died of complications from cardiovascular surgery.

Neil underwent cardiac bypass surgery earlier this month after doctors found blockages in his coronary arteries.

Neil Armstrong and fellow Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. 

These men are the true American heroes. They travelled 384, 400 km to the moon, under primitive circumstances. Computer technology was a joke in 1969. It was nothing like it is today. 

Father, place Neil on the stairway
to heaven. 
These men were the bravest of the brave. They put their lives at the greatest of risk. 

Family members have stated that Neil Armstrong was a reluctant American hero, who had served his nation proudly, as a navy fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut.

They also stated: “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."

Let us pray that Neil Armstrong is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
