Steve Jobs' biological sister, Mona Simpson, wrote a moving and highly personal eulogy for a private funeral service for the fallen tech titan that took place a few days after his death in early October.

An acclaimed novelist, she delivered a beautifully written description of Steve Jobs' life, illness and death. She said his last words before he slipped into unconsciousness for the last time were, "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

Simpson grew up as an only child with a single mother, and only met Jobs later in life when he tracked her down.

"Even as a feminist, my whole life I'd been waiting for a man to love, who could love me," she wrote.

"For decades, I'd thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother."

Read "A Sister's Eulogy for Steve Jobs," Mona Simpson's moving tribute to her brother, published in Sunday's New York Times.
