On Monday, MacGeneration got hold of an e-mail which notifies Apple’s employees that the company will be celebrating Steve Jobs’ glorious life on 19th October, starting at 10:00 a.m. This private celebration is to be held in the outdoor theatre of Apple’s Cupertino (California) campus.
In the e-mail, Tim Cook (Apple’s CEO) expresses how broken he feels after the death of Steve Jobs. At the same time, he says he is extremely touched by the tributes and condolences sent by Steve’s lovers from all over the world.
This event has been organized for Apple’s employees exclusively and the company does not plan on holding any public memorial.
Apple has requested people to send their messages and condolences for Steve on email@example.com. So make sure you do!
Here is the message that was included in the e-mail sent by Tim Cook to the employees of Apple:
Like many of you, I have experienced the saddest days of my lifetime and shed many tears during the past week. But I’ve found some comfort in the extraordinary number of tributes and condolences from people all over the world who were touched by Steve and his genius. And I’ve found comfort in both telling and listening to stories about Steve.
Although many of our hearts are still heavy, we are planning a celebration of his life for Apple employees to take time to remember the incredible things Steve achieved in his life and the many ways he made our world a better place. The celebration will be held on Wednesday, October 19, at 10 a.m. in the outdoor amphitheater on the Infinite Loop campus. We’ll have more details on AppleWeb closer to the date, including arrangements for employees outside of Cupertino.
I look forward to seeing you there.
