R.I.P Sir Edmund Hillary

Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to conquer Mt. Everest and one of the greatest New Zealanders to have ever lived, died yesterday at the age of 88.


It's hard to describe what Sir Ed meant for our country. Words don't do him justice because he was a man of so few.

He climbed mountains.

Enough said.

Hi,

We have created a memorial page to pay tribute to those loved ones who have passed away and to pay tribute and remembrance to those who have touched our lives. A special page has been created for Sir Edmund Hillary at http://www.people-to-remember.com/wiki/index.php/Sir_Edmund_Hillary

Thanks,
Josh
