A hour of TV that might change your life , Welcome back Michelle, and other thoughts

Hi friends, it's me, your long lost buddy Lisa who used to be a J -land regular, but still tries to keep in touch with you all with my broken computer.I have been so sad after hearing Randy Pausch died yesterday of pancreatic cancer,I feel like a member of my own family has died, Randy really touched my heart with his words when he appeared on Dateline that time with Diane Sawyer,  He also wrote a bestselling book called The Last Lecture which is still a bestseller today.He had such love for his wife and his 3 kids, he was talking about a tv movie and he said something like "I do'nt know who would play my wife because she is so beautiful, he kept saying it was unfair that he would'nt be around to see his children grow up, Last night when I was watching 20 / 20 a preview for this Tuesday's Primetime aired and the show this Tuesday night will be about Randy and remembering him, If any of you never saw his Dateline interview with Diane Sawyer I urge you all to watch this show this Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. on ABC , be inspired by his words, I wish my own father had been that loving and caring towards his family as Randy was, the world lost a great man yesterday who forever touched my heart.I would like to wish my awesome friend Michelle a big welcome home :) She had a rough patch for a few days but is now back again , welcome back hon, so glad you are doing ok , and know that you were missed alot by me and many others, Hope you all have a great weekend, I'm off work till Tuesday, Thank God, this week between the inventory and Cyndie hanging around  like wet wash was not fun`, anyhow hope you all are doing well, I hope to be back here on a regular journaling basis soon, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

I too felt like someone close to me died yesterday. That man was amazing, and gave us all a true life lesson. I feel so sorry for his wife and children. I know they are just devastated.
Love U!

Lisa, it's so easy to get attached to nice folks on the tv.  I say high five every night to the nice weatherman on channel 2!  miss you!  love, rose

Nice to see you around, Lisa, at least for a bit anyway.  Randy taught in Pittsburgh so he was a semi-celebrity here from the beginning.  The University world in this area is grieving deeply.  He was quite a guy.  Love ya, Chris

Thank you Lisa for the welcome back!

I am so glad to be back.

I was so sad to hear Randy Pausch passed away too - he had just spoken at my cousin's graduation a few weeks ago.

I remember you were the one who told me about him.

I feel so badly for his family. What a beautiful man.

I am going to get his book and I want to see the show if I can.

Love you my friend,

I was sad to hear about Randy.  I had seen a shortened 20 min version of his lecture on Oprah a while back.  I watched the whole lecture (1.5 hrs.) on YouTube.  I have it as one of my favorites vids. I'm going to purchase his book.  I know it will be a great read.  Hope you can be online regularly soon.
