Another Piece Gone

Another piece of my childhood has gone.  With the passing of Neil Armstrong, a vivid childhood memory came back in to focus.

I clearly remember as a child, my father waking us at 4 or 4:30 in the morning to watch the Apollo missions.  Back in the Sixties, space exploration was a huge deal.  I was fortunate to have a dad who was just as excited about it as we kids were.

Rest in peace, Neil.  And per your family's request...the next time I see the moon, I'll send a wink up to you.
