  • Steve Jobs' Last Words: "OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW."



    Steve Jobs' sister Mona Simpson wrote and delivered the eulogy for her brother's funeral at Memorial Church of Stanford University on October 16. Without a question, it is the most touching tribute I've had the pleasure of reading since Jobs' passing.

    Published today in the New York Times today, Simpson's perspective is uniquely positioned deep within the reality distortion field far away from its influence. She never had to experience too much of Jobs the businessman. Simpson experienced her brother the husband, the loving father, and the sibling.

    Simpson's words do her brother justice more than any pundit, journalist or friends could. Which is why you should read it here and realize why it makes so much sense that Jobs' last words were "OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW."

    Read the eulogy in its entirety.

      Beautifully written, though I am not sure how much of it is truly accurate versus embellished.

      Often, when someone is very close to someone passing, they receive a glimpse of the other side. My take on it would be his amazement of whats to come.

      Think about it , he looked around the room at his kids, at his wife, then beyond them! That's when he said it. Many many people that are ready to pass see their deceased family members coming to get them. Life is a journey and that journey will surely end! Until that day may god bless his family n especially his wife!

      Because he was high as a kite in morphine. I know some are getting this vision if him saying oh wow and then drifting on to the here after.... I'm a nurse that has many, many end of life situations under my belt and the movie ending scenario just never happens. He was a man......

      Hey rkswat... Have you had a near death experience yourself?? I seriously doubt it. I have. There is a bright and warm light, I did see a couple family members that had past long before.. Until you know what your talking about don't act like you do.

      Quit trying to desensitize the situation. My great grandmother was 105 when she passed and before she died she claimed to see her parents and siblings waiting for her. What I found most odd is that she never learned english, she only spoke spanish her entire life, yet her last words to me were in English as she told me she would miss me.

      In case it seems odd why she would speak english, it's because I was just about the only member of the family that never learned Spanish. But I would visit her with my mother very often. And she would tell me all kinds of great tales and stories of how her husband used to ride with Pancho Villa and how life was back in the day... With my mother translating the entire time. So when she said goodbye to me in English, i knew it was special and it was meant for me.

      That was a beautiful eulogy for steve.
