When Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away, Apple immediately paid its own tribute to its talismanic leader by posting a memorial page on its website, also asking those that wanted to pay their respects to email a specially created email address with their thoughts and tributes to Jobs.

In the weeks that have passed since Jobs’ death Apple has received over one million tributes to its Remembering Steve email address, taking them and posting them on its Steve Jobs website page for visitors to read:

Over a million people from all over the world have shared their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve. One thing they all have in common — from personal friends to colleagues to owners of Apple products — is how they’ve been touched by his passion and creativity. You can view some of these messages below.

And share your own at rememberingsteve@apple.com.

Apple website visitors can still send their tributes, which will in-turn be posted to the website should they be approved.

Steve Jobs died on October 5 after a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Apple Stores will close for an hour and a half today as a mark of respect to the Apple co-founder during his memorial service.
