2. My condolences to all...

He was an amazing man who raised another amazing man in Neil.

Cyril will be missed in this world that sorely needs others just as strong...

4. It's hard to lose a parent, even when they've lived a long life.



🍷Raise a glass of wine to Cyril DeGrasse Tyson's life. I am sure Neil would approve.

6. It is not surprising that he was such an impressive man.

He certainly raised an impressive son. Losing a parent is hard, no matter your age.
