A Tribute to a Wonderful Man

Early this morning, Randy Pausch died. I wrote about him here at the happyluau in a post about bravery. There is nothing I can say to give him a fitting tribute. He was a man who lived his life to the fullest up until the very end. He will be greatly missed, and will not be forgotten.

I heard this morning ... watched his 76 minute lecture again twice today ... and shared on both my blogs as well. What an amazing legacy Randy leaves behind, reminding us all what really matters and how to live joyfully each day ... no matter what!
Hugs and blessings,

This was one amazing man! I, too, listened to the lecture again. This morning, though, I thought it said the lecture had been removed from YouTube! His message was so fabulous...if only more people could really hear it!

Thanks so much, Olivia! You have a delightful blog here. I will be exploring more.

Thank you, Kim. I'm thinking it will be back up. He is going to be on Oprah again on Monday (rerunning his previous appearance, of course) and I think that the interest in his attitude toward life will continue.

I am glad to have met you, Kim, and I enjoy your blog, too. And your pictures.

Blessings and peace, O

I knew the day would come when his life would end but even still, I am filled with sadness. I admire the way he made the most of his life and changed so many lives though his speech, his character and his attitude.

Me, too, Kristine. Sacredness today, O
