Apple’s website today showcases a “Celebrating Steve” video, featuring famous moments from Steve Jobs’s life and career, plus a statement from his family.

Ten years after the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, Apple has turned over its website’s homepage to two memorials. An almost three-minute video tribute, and then a personal message from Laurene Powell Jobs and the rest of Jobs’s family.

“For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together,” begins the family’s message. “Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.”

“Each of us has found his or her own path to consolation,” it continues, “but we have come together in a beautiful place of love for Steve, and for what he taught us.”

“Celebrating Steve” features Jobs in stills, video, and voiceover as it charts his life and includes both key thoughts of his, and famous moments. There’s the unveiling of the original Mac, the iMac, the iPod, and the iPhone.

“When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much,” says Jobs in the video.

“But life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact,” he continues. “And that is, everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you.”

“And you can change it,” says Jobs. “You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use.”
