Author of "Last Lecture" has died

Did I mention that Randy Pausch died (of pancreatic cancer) on July 25? I've been heartened by his cancer journey and recently viewed his graduation address to Carnegie Mellon University alum. Check out his life at: http://www.cmu.edu/homepage/beyond/2008/summer/an-enduring-legacy.shtml. As you can imagine, I am quite saddened by his death leaving me quite reflective of our own family's experience.
