Randy Pausch passed away yesterday morning (7/25).
I keep thinking about my kids and what he said during his interview with Diane Sawyer.
"There is a sadness that comes when I think about my kids...and it's not so much a: I won't get the experience of being a dad...more that they won't have me for them...The metaphor I use is someone is going to push my family off a cliff pretty soon and I won't be there to catch them and that breaks my heart." - Randy Pausch - Primetime Live Interview
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
