    Default 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 here.

    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.

    2 things are wrong with your statement:
    1. that isn't provable because if they're very close to passing, they won't be able to tell you anything because they'll die before they can
    2. because you can't prove it, your first word, "Often" is not valid

    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!
