The last to leave...

In 1969, Cernan was the last man to leave the moon's surface and board the lunar module.  His parting words were "We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind," and he also wrote the letters TDC in the dust on the surface of the moon - the initials of his then 9 year old daughter Teresa Dawn Cernan.
