Goodbye Professor

Several months ago John and I watched a program about Randy Pausch.  He was a professor of computer science, but most importantly he was father and a husband.  Randy was diagnosed with terminal cancer.  Facing this terrible disease he gave his "last lecture" at his university.  This inspirational lecture was made into a book.  I bought John the book on CD for John for Father's Day.  It is uplifting, hopeful, and it just wants to make you a better person.

Randy Pausch has lost his battle to cancer.  I am sad for his wife and small children.  He has left a wonderful legacy for them.  Because of Randy's motivational words I think a lot of people feel like they have lost a friend, myself included.

I'm so sorry to hear of Professor Pausches passing. I saw his Last Lecture on tv a long time ago. It made me cry. While his family will mourn his passing, he has left such a wonderful legacy for his children.
Now, let's see that new "do"
