Randy Pausch finally passed away from Pancreatic Cancer

If any of you have heard of "The Last Lecture" I strongly encourage everyone to read it. The best book I have ever read. Anyone who reads it, will be able to take something out of it. A very inspired and fantastic view on life.

I am sorry about your loss. I really apologize if this thread brought back some unwanted feelings. They all are and were true heroes for having gone thru all this.

I should have worded my first post better.....duh....lol.
I meant it was sad because he was so young. I like his video, for me it helps me even if I am having just a bad day or feeling down....his lecture motivates you whether you are going thru a loss, an illness....or heck, just a crappy day. Lol.

My mom lived for three years after her diagnosis....but she would be the very first one to tell me to get out there and not be sad, and to enjoy life and have fun....so that is what I do.

He was an amazing person to have done that.
