Though millions have seen Randy's "Last Lecture," he says he only wrote it for three people—his children. When they're old enough, Jai says they'll watch it and remember their father. "They're going to be able to see Randy at his absolute best," she says. "Randy was an incredible lecturer. He was a wonderful teacher, and they'll be able to see him in his true element."
Until then, the family is honoring Randy's legacy in other ways. Jai saysDisney World
, one of Randy's favorite places, recently invited the whole family down for a special ceremony.
"They dedicated a plaque to Randy in the park," she says. "The kids and I spoke about what Randy did, what his professional life was like and how his ideas would go on and live on. ... That's something that I think that he would have been very, very proud of."Did Randy Pausch have any regrets?
