Thanks Steve

 

thanks for changing my life and making it better.
 
your own striving for perfection was also mine.
 
your machines changed my life.
 
they let me create in new ways.
 
they let me build a business that started in 1995 and thrives today.
 
your machines helped me feed my family and pay the bills.
 
to call them machines is too small a word, but its the best one I have.
 
to Steve's family, please accept our deepest condolences on your loss,
 
however trivial these words may be on the screen please know there are real people behind them that share your grief. 
 
the pain will eventually pass, and hopefully you'll be able to remember Steve as a person who changed the world for the better
 
who's invention gave jobs to thousands of people directly, and millions indirectly.
 
we all thank you.
