This is the hardest thing I have ever written in my life. Today Steve Jobs has passed away. What follows is the statement from Apple, the company he started from his garage.
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.
His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
Steve Jobs was said to have passed while surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife and four children. My heart and prayers go out to them in this tough time.
