John Glenn Has Passed Away!

It is with a heavy heart that we must share the news that astronaut and former Senator John Glenn has died at the age of 95. He was an icon and pillar of strength and inspired so many kids to want to travel to the moon. He died at an Ohio hospital earlier today, per the hospital, less than 20 years after he returned to space at the age of 77. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012, an honor bestowed upon him by President Barack Obama and leaves behind wife Annie as well as two children, John and Carolyn. Our deepest sympathies are with all who knew and loved him. 2016 has not been a good year for famous people as the list just keeps adding up as to whom we have lost! #RIPJohnGlenn
