Novelist Mona Simpson wrote a beautiful eulogy for her brother's death. She read the piece at Jobs' funeral, and it was recently released to the media. Simpson said:
"He was never embarrassed about working hard, even if the results were failures. If someone as smart as Steve wasn't ashamed to admit trying, maybe I didn't have to be."

As an author, Simpson is known for her award-winning novels such as Anywhere But Here.
