A Final Farewell Update

There could be worse things


WOA… very powerful. Reminds me of the feelings that got stirred up when I read “Tuesdays With Morrie”. Did you read that book?

This was absolutely incredible Thank you so much.

Did you all see his Final Farewell Lecture?

Here it is if you have not, amazing.


article in Journal is very good to read. Thanks for posting it here… He says very important things to us all I think

I was crying while reading the article… especially the part when he said that Chloe not yet 2, may end up having no memory of him…
“But I want her to grow up knowing, that I was the first man ever to fall in love with her.” - such a loving father…

Hi Karen,
I went to lastlecture.com on youtube and watched his whole lecture. The article in the paper was really excellent. I was actually surprised to read such a nice article from a reporter, but he truly nailed everything right on . The lecture is life changing for me. I am deeply grateful you have brought us the article and the chance to hear the lecture. Thank you

everyone should bookmark Randy Pausch’s Website as he posts almost daily as to what is going on with his care and his life. He is an amazing man who shows you that life is for living!

Wow, thank you so much for sharing this.

Thought it’d be a good idea to share the video here:

Also, not sure if you know this, but Professor Pausch made the TIME 100 List.

I read his update from 5/2 and his cancer has spread, very sad :frowning:

Update :slight_smile:

Yesterday, the book by Prof. Pausch jumped at me while browsing in Border’s.

If you click on the cover image below and end up purchasing the book, you will also be helping the Diabetes Hands Foundation.

From Good Morning America:

Inspiring Professor Randy Pausch Dies
Carnegie Mellon professor, 47, succumbs to pancreatic cancer.

ETA: the world was a better place for having him in it.

thank you for sharing this.

Very powerful and touching. It makes us think twice about how we view life and it’s exsistance. Once you think you have it bad, look over your shoulder and you will see someone that has it worse. I try to live life to the fullest not knowing what this horrific disease has in store for me and my loved ones. Again, thanks for the uplifting story.


Thank you for sharing this… it brought me to tears and was a good reminder of all the things that we can be thankful for!
