Steve Jobs

“OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW”, the final words of Steve Jobs’ life Mona Simpson, Jobs’ sister has revealed.

A moving eulogy published in The New York Times on Sunday, by novelist Mona Simpson hailed him as a loving, tender soul.

The eulogy was delivered for her brother, on 16 October at his memorial service at the Memorial Church of Stanford University.

Recounting their relationship and Steve’s last minutes with his family, Simpson writes about meeting her brother for the first time, the day Jobs met Laurene, his kids and when Steve became ill.

Simpson shares the emotional last few days leading up to his passing, “Tuesday morning, he called me to ask me to hurry up to Palo Alto. He started his farewell and I stopped him. I said, “Wait. I’m coming. I’m in a taxi to the airport. I’ll be there.” “I’m telling you now because I’m afraid you won’t make it on time, honey.”
