Death of any kind reminds us of our own mortality. The death of a brilliant and very wealthy person reminds us that nothing can shield us from death’s grip. I’m encouraged through my faith that there is something beyond this life, and excited that Mr. Jobs has shown me how to leave a legacy that will never be forgotten. He did this by living his life fully, taking risks and filling his 56 years with purpose and meaning. My wife compiled a portrait of all the Mac products we have owned as a tribute to this man’s impact on our lives. I wonder what my portrait will be. What will yours be?
