Randy Pausch R.I.P.

Randy Pausch, the professor with pancreatic cancer who gave "The Last Lecture" has died.

WaPo's Neely Tucker summed it up this way:

"Death was, as he had made clear that magic evening on the stage, both near and inevitable. But he had made sure his legacy was set. He had done all that a father can -- provide for his children and, at the end, let them know that all he really did in this life was to love them.

"Life is not complicated and it is not fair, Randy Pausch might have said. It's just hard sometimes."

Pausch's Last Lecture can be seen in its entirety right here.

He is now laughing with the angels. He earned it.

My Dad died from pancreatic cancer, and he suffered dearly.
