Your tributes to Sir Edmund Hillary

725 comments

Twelve days have passed since Sir Ed died at Auckland City Hospital, and his farewell will be New Zealand's largest state funeral.
The funeral at St Mary's in Parnell is the culmination of two days of official mourning, which began yesterday with the lying-in-state of his body at the Cathedral of Holy Trinity.
Led by his widow, Lady June Hillary, and Prime Minister Helen Clark, family, friends and dignitaries will gather at St Mary's and at the cathedral next door for a private service.
Hundreds of thousands more will gather in front of outdoor screens in Auckland and around New Zealand, and countless others will share the occasion around the world.
