Steve Jobs learned in February that he didn’t have much time left, and spent the last months of his life saying goodbye to the people who meant the most to him, reports The New York Times.

A "nearly endless stream of people" wanted to say goodbye in the last few weeks, but most were stopped by his wife, Laurene, who explained that he was too tired to see many visitors, the story notes. Jobs was so weak in his final weeks that he had trouble walking up the stairs in his house, the piece notes.

His final weeks exemplified his trait for remaining in "tight control of his choices," the piece notes. He asked his close friend Dean Ornish, a physician and preventative health advocate, to eat sushi with him at a favorite restaurant. Other people he saw in his last weeks include Disney chief executive Robert Iger; venture capitalist John Doerr; and Apple board member Bill Campbell, the piece adds.

Jobs also spoke with his biographer, Walter Isaacson, and offered Apple advice on unveiling the iPhone 4S, which was revealed Tuesday, the story says. Most of the time, though, he spent with his wife and children, the article notes.
