Mourning this Morning

The world feels a little less complete today, as we have lost a man who has defined an era.  Apple has been a part of my life for over fifteen years since I was a teenager.  Apple talk has been a glue of sort bonding my father and me.  We have always been the computer geeks in our family, well Apple geeks to be specific.  We love talking about our Macs or some new Apple product and watching Steve Jobs talk online.  We just watched him for hours a few months ago talking about the iCloud and all the changes that are happening now.  While the Apple icon lives on, its creator has left us far too soon.  We truly mourn the passing of this incredible person who we feel we have gotten to know over the years.  He has created not only a brand built on creativity and ingenuity but a brand that represents joy and family and home to me and my father, and I think it holds a similar meaning to so many others.  We are grateful for the vision of this one man, and the incredible products that Apple has given us.  He left the world a fairly young man, but left a legacy that has changed the world as we know it. My deepest sympathy for the loss of this husband, father, friend, colleague, visionary, mentor and icon.
