Steve Jobs last words before death – Your theories?

It has been almost a month since Apple’s Co-Founder Steve Jobs passed away. Many fans of the company have been expressing their deepest condolences and paying tribute to the great man himself by leaving their comments on his memorial page and posting some of his now famous quotes and comments on things like Twitter and Facebook. Now Jobs’ sister Mona Simpson has revealed what his last words were before his untimely death.

The revelation came in a eulogy she had written about her brother which was shared during a memorial service for Jobs on October 16th and later published by The New York Times. It describes Simpson’s hopes and aspirations before meeting her brother for the first time and what he was like as a person, as well as what she thought of him when she met him for the first time.

The biological siblings did not meet each other until 1985 as Jobs was adopted. Having grown up with an absent father, Simpson wrote how she’d longed for a man to love who could love her back. She’d wished for her father to be ‘rich and kind’ and to come into her and her mother’s lives and help. Her wish came true through her ‘rich and famous’ long-lost brother.

‘My whole life I’d been waiting for a man to love, who could love me. For decades, I’d thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother.’

Simpson also explained in her eulogy that Jobs’ love for his wife and family ‘sustained him’ meaning it kept him going. She described the goals he had set that he had hoped to achieve before his death, including the launch of a boat he was building and his son’s graduation, explaining that he was unable to achieve all of them. Details on what some of his other goals were can be found at Apple Insider.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the eulogy was the part revealing his last words. Simpson said ‘he seemed to be climbing’ as his breathing slowed, then he is described as ‘gazing’ at his wife, children and his sister Patty, then over their shoulders saying ‘OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.’ What are your theories on what these resounding last words could have meant?
