  Yes, sad news. As a NASA employee I watched the Apollo 11 liftoff from 
KSC and was elated beyond description at their accomplishment. On the 
35th anniversary of that historic flight NASA held a commemorative 
celebration in the Nation's Air and Space Museum in Washington. All 
three astronauts were there along with numerous dignitaries, including 
Walter Cronkite. In turn, each astronaut spoke to the assembled guests 
about those days, with films of the voyage from liftoff to recovery 
shown on a five story high Imax screen. It brought back many wonderful 
memories. A grand party of food and spirits followed, which Debbie and I 
thoroughly enjoyed and will fondly remember. RIP Neil.

PS. Happy Birthday, Phil. :-)   Many happy returns.
