PHOTOS: Neil Armstrong Remembered At Private Memorial

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, was remembered at a private memorial service in Cincinnati on Friday. Armstrong, who died last Saturday at the age of 82, flew on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, and spoke one of the most memorable sentences of the era. As he placed his feet on the moon's surface, Armstrong said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Among those paying tribute to Armstrong at Friday's service were former astronauts John Glenn, Jim Lovell, and Michael Collins, who, with Buzz Aldrin, flew on the Apollo 11 mission with Armstrong.
