Rest in Peace Mr. Jobs


Yesterday, I had heard that Steve Jobs had died. My first response was,"who's he?" I had never heard the name before, and couldn't understand the media attention. Then, I listened and watched the commentaries, the stories of his life, and the amazing things he had done. I had no idea. I heard him compared to Edison and Einstein. One of the greatest inventors of our time. I had no idea that not only was he a co-founder of Apple, but he also was the mastermind behind Pixar.
Pancreatic cancer took a great man. He brought technology to the world with his genius and determination. Steve, you will be missed. Rest in peace.

Very nice post Laurie. I probably would not have known if my husband wasn't such a news buff, I can't help but hear everything. Hugs, Diane

It just goes to show that no matter how famous, or how much money you have - this horrible disease {cancer} can and does affect anyone and everyone..God's speed, Steve Jobs..
