    A Sister’s Eulogy for Steve Jobs


    Steve Jobs' sister Mona Simpson delivered a touching eulogy to the New York Times.

    If nothing else, read the last few paragraphs...chilling, yet wonderful.

    That is so beautiful. I'm tearful as I write this. Having lived through my own sister-in-laws death from lung and kidney cancer, I'm glad I learnt about him before he died and not after. My enduring memory of him will be his announcements of his babies, his iPhone, iPods and iPads. Oh, yes, and especially his - And Just one other Thing.......

    Despite Jobs' father's failure at being a genuine father, his genes served his children well. Steve was pretty special, as we all know, but his sister Mona is one amazing writer. Thank you for sharing this.

    Yes that was just so beautiful, thank you Rich so much for sharing that. I had heard little snippets of it, but to read it in full, gives a much fuller image of the man he was and he was such a special man indeed. So superbly written too.
