    Yes,
    a great loss not just for NZ, but for the world.

    They don't make them like that anymore.

    We Brits ain't too bad:

    Everest hero to have UK memorial
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7196154.stm

    Sir Edmund Hillary, the first climber to scale Mount Everest, is to be honoured at a memorial service at Windsor Castle.
    The New Zealander died earlier this month in Auckland at the age of 88.
    Buckingham Palace said the Queen had offered his family St George's Chapel for a date to be agreed in April.
    The Queen's link with Sir Edmund dates back to the announcement of his Everest ascent on the eve of her coronation in 1953. He was knighted later that year.
    'Deeply saddened'
    The Queen will be represented by the governor-general of New Zealand, Anand Satyanand, at a state funeral in Auckland next week. A personal wreath from the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be laid at the lying-in-state before the state funeral.

    Very sad to see such a great NZ icon pass away. He has done a lot to not only NZ but the whole world in terms of conservation, his work with fundraising for the himalayas and other things.

    He will forever live in our hearts and on our $5 bill.
