Randy Pauch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer awhile back and was known for giving his "last lecture".

The video of his lecture is available below and is highly recommended.

I am so sad. I am thinking about his wife Jai and their children right now. She is strong; and he fought so hard.

We had become online friends this past year. He saw Heather's story and was inspired. Imagine that. His legacy is an amazing voice for how we can fight to the end w/o trying to determine when this is to be.

He was an amazing individual. I wish I had known him for even longer.
I am so sad. I feel as though I lost a long time friend.

His tapestry - its brilliant. It is full of the life he lived and the wonderful attitude that he chose to live it with.

Yeah, this was something. I recommend for everyone to watch the video he made. It was shown on Oprah, I couldn't understand his strength knowing he would soon die.

Diana was he a Christian?

I am not able to judge that for sure; but in our correspondence and with understanding from one of his very close Christian friends, he did not openly 'profess' faith. He did have a church family. He did not discuss his beliefs openly at all. He definitely gave credit to his father as the most Christian man he knew; but he seemed angry with God if anything from a few comments. He was open and clear that what he was doing was for his children. I think he was a believer in Jesus. He did not speak about faith openly as much as he spoke openly about his family. He knew that I prayed for him and he was always kind and thankful in his responses, but there was no engagement or response/discussion of faith. Perhaps his faith was deep and quiet and without being open about it. I do not know for sure.
