The best way to honor Neil Armstrong

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The family of the late Neil Armstrong released a brief but touching statement earlier this afternoon, to recognize the passing of the former U.S. astronaut. The entire thing won't take you more than a couple minutes to read, and definitely warrants your attention, but we found this, the closing paragraph, to be particularly moving.

Rest in peace, Neil. Tonight, we look upon the Moon and think of you.
