Randy Pausch Dead at 47

My students and I talked about Randy Pausch at the end of this past school year as his book The Last Lecture stood atop the bestseller lists and he was named as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People.  He died Friday of pancreatic cancer.  

Along with millions of other people, I was touched by the ideas in his book.  They were very simple lessons about life but lessons which have been cast aside in most people's lives.  My heart goes out to his wife and young children.
