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."

VIRGIL FAMILY Thank you for filling in a few holes of this family. We are related as I am the GGG Granddaughter of Daniel Southworth Virgil who was a brother to Erastus whose wife was Sophia Hancock. I would LOVE to get in contact and converse more as have been tracing this family for many years. email@example.com
The reason I ask is that Louise Stovall of Quinlan, Texas has/had a copy of her great-grandfather's marriage license. His name was William B. Stovall. My great-great grandfather was William B. Stovall and he, too, was supposed to be buried in the cemetery at Sumpter, AR. There is no record of him or his daughter, Amanda.
When I saw this notation for Iva, I wondered if there could be any relation. I would love to hear from you. Please let me know.
Virgil Family More Virgil Family? My Great-Grandfather Frank Virgil came from Fabius, New York to Michigan in the 1870's. Growing up we only knew of our Michigan Family; now that I'm researching our family roots I'm learning of more and more Virgil Family. Where do you connect with the family? I look forward to hearing back from you. Claudia
Note for Charles Hunter Thank you so much for the wonderful words that you left for my Uncle Charles. I loved him so much. God Bless you and yours. God Bless Texas and every cowboy and horse that ever watched the moon come up over Texas...
