The family of Steve Jobs apparently held a quiet funeral service for the co-founder of Apple today. No public service is planned, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Time Cook, Apple chief executive, told company employees on Wednesday that Apple is planning a “celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life,” for staff but didn’t say when. Meanwhile, fans are still leaving tributes to Jobs at Apple stores.

No further details of the “small private gathering” funeral service were available.
