"Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow!"

Being an Apple, Inc. fan, my businesses have always used Macintosh technology, as long as it was around. So, I'm a fan of Steve Jobs. After his death, reading the various accounts of his personal life and relationship with employees and family, she seems a true enigma.  His sister, author Mona Simpson, was by his bedside with other family members when he died, and this is what she reports where her brother's last words:
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,” she recalled. “Steve’s final words were, Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.
Did he catch a glimpse of heaven and St. Peter's gate? Did he, in those final moments, confess and believe in Christ's redeeming mercy? Seems like that's possible. We don't know, but we can hope, as the Church does about all that die.
