My second note today.... The sadness lingers! So very sad to have to face the fact that he is no longer here!
Such an icon...

We should all send an Apple card to 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino.

He handled his leaves and his resignation gracefully, trying hard to do the best thing for the company he loved. He hung on as CEO until a month before his death, just long enough to see his company become the most valuable in the world. He probably also helped Tim Cook prepare for his first public appearance as CEO -- there seemed to be some Steve in his performance. I'll bet he participated in design and strategic decisions until just about his last day. He considered it a privilege to go to work each day, and was having the most fun of his life in his job. He hung on as long as he could. Namaste, Steve.

I dreaded this day; Steve Jobs was my hero. However, he was very loved and his time was very fruitful, and needless to say he has put his mark on the planet forever. Steve Jobs, you're an inspiration!

Every once in a while a revolutionary 'product' comes along that changes everything.
Steve, this is you. RIP

I can't believe I'm writing these words ....
I don't believe in Heaven, but I hope there is one for people like Steve.
Rest peacefully, Mr. Jobs ....

I got my first Apple computer in February 1993. It was a Macintosh IIvi. It had a 16 MHz processor and 4 MB of RAM. Ever since, I have had at least one Apple device in my life because my life was always improved in some way through owning one. Steve's company and products improved a lot of lives and he will be very deeply missed.
Thank you, Steve Jobs, for all that you gave the world.

We all think and feel the same sadness, we all know his accomplishments, but although I never met him I am truly saddened by this news. Feels like I lost a favorite uncle. In some small way maybe it would make him smile that I first read this on my iPhone 3GS.
I live in Silicon Valley and it rained today and raining tonight. Silicon Valley cries.
I feel very happy that I've actually been on Apple's campus in the past and ate lunch in their cafeteria with someone who worked there.
For all the memories and pushing us past flip-phones, DOS, and manila colored computers (and a lot more), thank you Mr. Jobs. Respect!

What's interesting is that until now I'd only thought of my attitude towards Steve as admiration and appreciation for what he'd accomplished.
But I feel kind of sad, like I feel like I personally lost something. It's interesting how people can touch and affect those the've never met.
Take care, Steve. See you in the next.

But most of all, thank you Laurene, Reed, Erin and Eve for sharing your husband/father with the world. As you continue this journey called life, know that everywhere you look you will be able to observe the difference your husband and father made in this world.
We all mourn the loss of our great innovator but our thoughts are with you who have lost so much more. God bless you.
