Steve Jobs funeral is quiet family affair
'Small private gathering' on Friday, October 7
Always an intensely private person in matters involving his personal life, Steve Jobs' final event was also a private affair.
According to an unnamed source speaking with The Wall Street Journal, there was to be a small family gathering at an undisclosed time and place on Friday, October 7.
Jobs died on Wednesday, October 5. No cause of death has been disclosed, but Jobs revealed in an email to Apple staff on August 1, 2004, that he had undergone an operation to remove a cancerous islet cell neuroendocrine tumor from his pancreas. After that surgery, the prognosis was good, but his health visibly deteriorated in recent years.
In an email to all Apple employees on Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote: "We are planning a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org."
No date for that celebratory event nor details as to what it might entail have yet been provided. ®
It certainly wasn't a flash affair...
Nice to know the WBC c*nts didn't get a chance to go through with their threats
Oh, you're so going to hell for that....
....and we're all coming for laughing.
Pleased to see this.
It is good to read that the family were able to mark his passing with dignity and in private. In business he polarised opinion and was a great publicist, but outside of commerce he was quite private and an enigma. As a significant public figure his life will be poured over and debated, but his family deserved the opportunity to take their leave away from the public glare if they so chose.
If his coffin was oblong with rounded corners?
