The man who conquered Everest who's quality's are as much a part of our make up as the ANZACs as died. For those non NZDers Hillary is held in the same regard as Don Bradman is in Australia. Ed is on the NZ five dollar note.

RIP NZ will always be proud of Sir Edmund Hillary.

He was a much beloved and revered person in NZ history and world history as well.
My heart goes out to my adopted counrty.
