Steve Jobs 1955-2011

I just read the NEWS on my computer,
  today Steve Jobs died at the age of 56.

I love this comment, spoken by President Obama, "There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."

Apple posted this statement on their website:  "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.  Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.  Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

The nation mourns the loss of one of the geniuses of our time.  I can't imagine how different our lives would be without all of our iTOYS!  I am so thankful I was able in my lifetime to enjoy the fruits of his labor;  my Mac Book computer, my iPod, my iPhone, my iPad.

Across the globe other countries also mourned his passing...we felt like we knew him personally.  He was my HERO.  SO SAD.

This cartoon from  the internet is so apropos.  Steve would have loved the humor.   Words we use daily thanks to him!

God Bless You.

Ella, It is so sad. We all feel the loss even though we didn't know him personally...we felt like we did because we use all of his inventions DAILY! We have lost a great innovator. I always looked forward to the next great Apple product release and his enthusiasm...he enjoyed what he did for us. I'll miss his keynote speeches. I'll miss him.
