Unhappy Professor Randy Pausch Joins the Great Man in the Sky - 07-25-2008, 02:42 PM

Do you know what date his death was...

I would like to put an honorable mention in my current project at the help/credits screen

I stalled on my project, but this inspires me to continue on...

The date was "last night" - which was either July 24 th or July 25 th - depending on your time zone.

Look at the links, or your own news, for the story of a really inspiring person.

I read his book. An amazing man. So many lessons I learned from him in just 4 short days of reading his book.

Thanks to Randy MILLIONS of children will have more love, support and fun because this wonderful man shared his beautiful vision and wisdom with their elders.
Thank you Randy, to quote a cliche;
"The world is a better place because of you." Long after you are gone your Last Lecture will keep on transforming lives.

the gifts Randy gives to us, is that we'll probably have a lot more time to spend with the ones we love.

Thanks a lot, Randy.
