You can tell she's an author. Well written, makes us feel as if we were there.

I've had the honour of being there for 2 loved ones who were in their final moments and there is nothing as hard nor as precious as saying good-bye.

As have I... I have never thought of it as honour or as being precious, I guess I am just not that poetic about death.

I should have been more clear - its not about the actual death per say, but the sharing in the raw emotions between 2 individuals in what is a final moment. There's a certain finality that, to me, adds another level.

Been there too. As hard as is it was it was better than not being there.

Only Steve knows for sure but from the description of looking at his spouse, his kids, and his sister and then letting go - "Oh Wow" three time seems to me an affirmation of life will continue and these very important people are here with me as I expire.

What a life he led. And to me, given everything I've read about Jobs and his manner(s) "Oh Wow" seems so very Jobsian.
