The New York Times releases Mona Simpson’s moving eulogy

You may have heard that Steve Jobs sister Mona Simpson gave a heartwarming eulogy during Steve Jobs  memorial service on October 16 at the Memorial Church of Stanford University. Now the New York Times has published Mona Simpson’s eulogy for her brother, Steve Jobs.

In her remarks, she recalls her experience of his final days and hours, including his last words to his family.

A part of the speech can be found below, but we really recommend you as it is very powerful.

One time when Steve had contracted a tenacious pneumonia his doctor forbid everything — even ice. We were in a standard I.C.U. unit. Steve, who generally disliked cutting in line or dropping his own name, confessed that this once, he’d like to be treated a little specially.

I told him: Steve, this is special treatment.

He leaned over to me, and said: “I want it to be a little more special.”
