Dear Ms. Feverfew –
Steve Jobs passed away today. FoxNews: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/10/05/apple-says-founder-steve-jobs-is-dead/ CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/05/us/obit-steve-jobs/index.html?iref=BN1 MSNBC http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44794300/ns/business-us_business/t/apple-says-co-founder-steve-jobs-has-died/?gt1=43001#.Tozx_HFXQXU
I wonder, did his father Abdulfattah John Jandali ever get to meet him or was he denied that opportunity? Will he be invited to the funeral? He is a father, an old man who will mourn for the son he has lost a second time. I hope compassion was extended to him in the late hours of Steve Jobs life, but I don’t hold out hope that it was. First fathers aren’t real fathers after all, just like first mothers are not considered to be real mothers, either.
This whole thing makes my heart ache for first parents across the world.
Will anyone bother to tell me if you die?
Updated October 7, 2011: It appears that Steve never reached out to his natural father and passed without ever allowing a meeting. http://m.christianpost.com/news/steve-jobs-death-biological-father-left-with-unfulfilled-wish-to-meet-him-57520/ A tragedy for all involved.
