Steve Jobs

I am not sure why I am so saddened about the
death of Steve Jobs, the face behind the name APPLE.
Yes, he was only 56 and had pancreatic cancer which
is one of those that, as of yet, there is no cure for.
That in itself is enough to make me saddened
but there is more to Steve Jobs than this and
that he led Apple to stardom.
He was a leader of our world, never letting
others doubt stop his vision.
When other companies were folding because
of the economy, he believed in "slow and steady"
not comparing APPLE to others.
He was there when Mac and the sayings
"Once you go Mac, you never go back"
Yet, again it is none of this that makes me saddened
by his death.
It is the man people said he was.
Although he was an icon, he still always spent time with
all even the lower man on the assembly lines.
When things got bad for Apple he received a pay check of
a dollar until things picked up.
Now that is a quality of a man that is just not seen that often.
To us, he was an Icon, no one we knew specifically but
a household name we all knew who was.
To his family, he was only a daddy, a husband, a son,
a brother.
For those family members, I wish them peace.
