R.I.P. John Glenn. A true American hero.
This year can't end fast enough.
Another surprise, and not a good one. An American Hero, for sure.
Yup, Hero with a capital H. To millions, for generations. RIP.
RIP John! Thanks.
Jeeze. This sucks. One of my boyhood heroes. I used to get up early and watch all the Mercury launches.
RIP John Glenn
BTW, Do you really think 2017 is going to be any better in this regard?
R.I.P. the original Starman
The last of the original seven.......
At 95 years young . What an amazing journey his life was !
What a life!!!! He left this mortal coil for the final time.
I loved Ed Harris' portrayal of him in the movie version of 'The Right Stuff'
A pioneer that lived an amazing life, thanks Mr. Glenn.
RIP Mr Glenn.
Not good. RIP. But led a great life and was loved by everyone.
95 years is a long life....and a highly distinguished life at that.... Rest In Peace sir.
What a life to have lived.
Could imagine the job interview?
So..We want to strap you to the biggest baddest machine ever built by humankind. And then we want to light it on fire!!
Whaddya say John?
RIP Mr Glenn
An amazing human. So inspirational to so many in the aerospace field.
Exactly. I don't understand why anyone would be surprised or saddened.
His was a life well lived and one to be celebrated, not mourned. Imo, of course.
