30 years ago today, a shaggy haired young man wearing a bow tie unveiled a product that would change the world – it was Steve Jobs and the now legendary Macintosh.

It seemed everything was going well for Taylor Smith’s life. She was known as being a super fun 12 year old who loved her family, her God and life.
