Sir Edmund Hillary

Truly a giant, Edmund Hillary was the first man to stand on top of the world. And by all accounts he was an ordinary, humble man. No wonder the people of New Zealand are so saddened today.

But that was only one of his many achievements throughout a long life, and his lifelong friendship with the people of Nepal has been one of the most touching parts of the many obituaries that have flown forth today.

Edmund Hillary and Tenzing NorgayEdmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay literally conquered the world. Today they have been reunited at an even higher level. The rest of us can only marvel at their achievement.

Hi Tim,

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
The site is completely free and open. Please feel free to add comments and share your thoughts.


Thanks,
