Author of "Last Lecture", Randy Pausch, has died at 47

If you have not seen his Last Lecture, it is amazing. It brought tears to my eyes.

The Last Lecture

Very sad. May he rest in peace.

I liked his concept of the brick walls that we run into being indicators of how much we really want something … Are we willing to put in the time, creative effort, and hard work to overcome the obstacles in our way on the way to reaching our dreams?

I pray through the mercy of God, that Randy Pausch be granted the eternal happiness for which all of us should strive as infinitely surpassing any dream in our temporal world.

May he rest in peace.

I can’t believe how this man remained so positive about life right up to the end. He truly must have had great love for his family.
