I wanted to do a little tribute in memory of Sir Edmund Hillary our very famousic iconic New Zealander who died on Friday 11 january 2008 aged 88 years.
To me Sir Ed has always been my idol. I look up in awe of what he achieved not only in being the first man to climb Mount Everest but also for the work he did for the people of Nepal as well. We all looked up to Sir Ed and he will always be fondly remembered by all New Zealanders.
Rest in Peace Sir Ed.
