    Apple today announced that Board member Jerome "Jerry" York has passed away after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage Tuesday night.
    As we noted yesterday, York was hand-picked for his director's position by Jobs in 1997 when Jobs took on the "interim" CEO position after the ousting of Gil Amelio. In addition to his director's position, York was also serving as Chair of the board's Audit and Finance Committee.

    The whole thing sounds very sudden, must be a shock for the family - sounds as though he was working away without complaint until yesterday. RIP.

    And that was it!

    One moment alive and the next minute.... gone!

    That is why we have to be happy and specially shre with others.

    There is a saying I always remember because is a law:

    "The only pain you should be afraid of is the love you hold" because after the person is gone is gone.

    This gentleman was part of Apple and he mande many things possible and he made us happy too. Best wishes to his families and friends and I am sure he will be well remembered.
