WSJ: A Final Farewell

How Randy Pausch, a 47-year-old college professor, came to teach his family about love, courage -- and saying goodbye

May 3, 2008; Page R1

Saying goodbye. It's a part of the human experience that we encounter every day, sometimes nonchalantly, sometimes with great emotion.

This is a follow up article about Randy Pausch and The Last Lecture.

Recommend both this story and the video.

A few other sites to visit are The Last Lecture and Randy Pausch's Update page.

A few notes from the article. As you read, think about what they mean.

  • Pittsburgh Bureau chief
  • $850 airfare
  • 300 mile drive
  • Bottle on a beach
This is a very touching story.

What struck you about this article, the book or the Last Lecture presentation?
