I noticed the other centeredness of Randy.  He didn’t want his last lecture to be about him and his cancer.  Even the small example of singing happy birthday with all the people in the audience to his wife showed his concern for her.  I believe one of the reasons it seems he was a successful as a professor is that he had learned the lesson that it is better to give than recieve.  He wanted to help give his students open doors and bright futures.
