    I have not seen it, but apparently Dr. Pausch's "Last Lecture" created quite a sensation. I plan to watch it tonight (assuming I can get through, that is -- it looks like the sites with the video are getting a lot of traffic today).

    He left behind three small children. According to one article, the "Last Lecture", though delivered to his university audience, was meant for his children.

    Thank you for your post. I saw him on Oprah and went out and bought his book after listening to his wonderful words. I don't know where I put it at the moment...the books are upside down again due to a crazy few months. (Spending the summer organizing). I recall that he seem to always enjoy life and his family, but seem to do this even moreso after his diagnosis. He was a good man and gave his family and world a wonderful legacy.
    This might get you to the lecture as well:
