The New York Times ran Steve Jobs’ sister’s eulogy this morning.

It’s a beautiful recollection of the 27 years Mona Simpson knew her biological brother, and it paints Jobs as an endless romantic, a creative genius, and a loving person.

Simpson ends the eulogy by recalling Jobs’ final moments.

“Steve’s final words, hours earlier, were monosyllables, repeated three times,” she says.

“Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them.

“Steve’s final words were:

“OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.”
