How unbelievably sad!!
Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who made the epic "one small step" on the moon back in 1969, has died.
His family has yet to confirm when or where he died.
But they will say he passed away due to "complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures."
In an extremely beautiful statement, they say:
"We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures. Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.
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."
He was 82.
Armstrong was a hero and his legacy will live on forever.
Rest in peace, Neil…
