What will your Final Lecture be?

Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose "last lecture" about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47.
I have read this book and I can't even begin to say how much it touched me. (I've already chosen it as the first read for my upcoming book club!) I laughed and cried the whole way through!
I hope you'll all get a copy and let it touch your heart the same way it did mine.

I'm saddened by the loss of such an incredible man. His story hits home to me and I know all too well the pain that his family is going through.

I haven't read his book yet but look forward to it. I've kind of been putting it off but now I think I'm ready. Thanks for lending it to me:)

You have me intrigued... I am now going out to purchase the book immediately. I will be ready for the first meeting of "Between the Pages"...

His story was on "Primetime" last night. What an incerdibly person. Now I want the book too.

Bev - I watched that too...or I should say, cried my way through it! He's a great man with a wonderful family that delivered a fantastic message that we could all take something away from!
