He knew that he will live only for few months. He knew that his kids will miss him. He knew that he has to leave her to spend the rest of her life without him. And he gave his last lecture. You might have already listened to his lecture, but try to revisit it through his book "The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch" with more experiences...
