Steve Jobs’ Sister Celebrates The Life of Her Best Friend
If reactions around the web are any indication, the legacy and words of Steve Jobs will continue to live on for quite some time. This past weekend, the world got to read the celebratory words of one of Jobs’ greatest champions – his sister, Mona Simpson. On Sunday, the New York Times published the eulogy Simpson delivered at the late iconic inventor’s Ocotober 16th memorial service.
During her intimate tribute to her brother, Simpson shared that Jobs was an “intensely emotional” man and that he “cultivated whimsy.” An accomplished writer, Simpson did not meet Jobs until they were both in their 20s, as Jobs was adopted as an infant. “Even as a feminist, my whole life I’d been waiting for a man to love, who could love me,” shared Simpson. “For decades, I’d thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother.”
Simpson made sure to let everyone in attendance at the memorial service know that Jobs’ final words were “OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.”
Of course, the published eulogy has people all over Twitter talking.
