Apple has launched a Steve Jobs tribute page displaying messages it has received from Apple customers and employees to remember the death of the company's co-founder.

"Over a million people from all over the world have shared their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve," Apple writes on the tribute page. "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."

Below the message, a scrolling list of notes is displayed remembering Steve Jobs.

"Steve, you are the man of the era," one message reads. "We really miss you." Another person, wishing "condolence to Steve Jobs' family," called Jobs "one of the greatest minds of all-time."

Apple's tribute page launch follows reports that the company has decided to temporarily close some of its retail stores today as part of a celebration of the life of Steve Jobs. The event, according to a leaked memo to employees, is scheduled to take place at Apple's headquarters at 10 a.m. The employee-only event will also be available via Webcast.

Steve Jobs passed away earlier this month after a long battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 56. Soon after the announcement was made, people around the globe took to social networks, including Twitter, to remember Jobs. Many of the people that worked with Jobs over the years, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, also commented publicly on his death.

Now, Apple is offering another outlet for people to share their memories of the Apple visionary. To submit a message to Apple for display on the Jobs tribute page, users must e-mail the company at "rememberingsteve@apple.com."
