I had seen ALL of Randy's speech - and it left me "speechless." The man's attitude toward his own "limited" time was AWESOME. I was one of those who voted for him for this "award." To be soooo young, have a wife and children, and have a fatal disease, DOES seem so unfair. I am 60; I've lived my life. But I can honestly say I COULDN'T have faced the "end" like Randy did. As a Professor - he TAUGHT lessons you couldn't pay for - not in a million years. I am indebted to him for showing me "a way" of living, changing the way I look at MY life, and what do I have to do to change and be like him? I hope when MY time comes, I can face it with the courage and "liveliness" that Randy did. RIP, Randy, you deserve it.

I hope you do have a chance to hear his Last Lecture. If not read his book it is the greatest thing I have ever read. God blessed us when he created Randy!

I would like to hear the entire talk and not just the first three minutes. He seems to have some important comments to make.
