To the family of Steve Jobs

It is not my way to write to those who have died. So, I write to those of you who are alive and feel the heaviness in your hearts at the passing of Steve Jobs. I wish to tell you our story in hopes that it will bring you all comfort and solace knowing how his dedication to innovation and his inventiveness impacted lives for the better here in Tennessee. My name is Jennifer McDougal and I am the owner of McDougal Design, a small graphic arts company in Cleveland, TN, operating since 1985. Along with my husband, Terry, we began our graphics company at a time when the application of graphics arts as I studied in college, was on the way out. We were a pre-press graphic shop that began in the pre-digital age using Varitypers, a process camera, and my skill of "cut and paste". We made a good living in our small shop, mainly producing real estate magazines for publishers all over the US. Terry, who is our R&D guy among all the other responsibilities he manages for us, soon realized that the way we produced our work was about to change drastically. He read everything he could find about Apple computers. In 1990, we purchased our first SE. I was a reluctant adopter, thinking there was no way a computer could be as fast and efficient in page layout as myself. It only took me two weeks to change my tune! Terry and I were "self-taught" on the use of our Apple computers and became quite proficient with them, thanks to the intuitive nature of their use. As upgrades came along, we would upgrade the office, as budget would allow. And we were never disappointed with an upgrade, only amazed at the increased speed and efficiency we experienced. We were among the Apple enthusiasts who were deemed "different" because we chose not to embrace the Windows platform. We have never been sorry for doing so. Terry believed in Apple so much that he purchased stock in the company back when it had lost value at $6.25 a share and $12.50 a share. Now to the part of this story where we both give you all our personal thanks. Running a small business is not without its challenges, especially in this economy. As the real estate and print industries have suffered, we found ourselves needing to change our business plan and move away from pre-press graphics and into the world of web design and internet communications. In abandoning our old business structure and metamorphosing into the new, the Apple brand continues to be a vital part of our new venture. We do much of our business via our iPhone and though we haven't been able to upgrade yet, we continue to use our iMacs and G3 and G4 computers in house. And though it has been tough to do so, to get us by, Terry sold off some of his Apple stock, which has allowed us to keep our doors open and pay the bills when so many businesses around us have folded. We are thankful that we have this wonderful relationship with Apple. We are thankful that Steve Jobs was a visionary, truly dedicated and successful at blending form with function through his Apple products. You see, his success has been our success and sustainability in business for over 25 years. We know he did not do it alone, so we thank each of you who have had a part in his life and his legacy. Our prayers are with you during this time of grief. We truly hope that our heartfelt appreciation for the contribution Steve Jobs made to our lives will, in a small way, bring you much comfort. Sincerely yours, Jennifer and Terry McDougal
