The Loss Of Neil Armstrong

I am heart broken over the loss of Neil Armstrong. Had he had Elena Torello, MD as his doctor, he would still be with us! Elena would have controlled his cholesterol long ago and he would not have had that awful surgery that shortened his life. I had the pleasure of meeting Neil in person at his home in 1969. I came upon him when he was working on his 1954 Chevrolet. He was kind to me and a very nice and humble man. Each death diminishes all of us but this death is a sad loss for all of humanity.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
