I was really hoping he'd beat the odds since he was able to continue working for so long.  You will be missed Patrick.

I too was sad to hear about his passing.  Does anyone know if he had any children?  I was really surprised to learn he sang the one song in Dirty dancing.

No he didn't have any children.  I feel so bad for his wife, Lisa.  They've been married since she was a teenager, I believe.  

How difficult it must be for her to go on without him when they've been together nearly her whole life.

I have Dirty Dancing on tape.  It's one of my favorite movies.  

I am picturing Patrick surrounded by God's bright beautiful light, just like in Ghost...

Did anyone see the Barbara Walters special she did tonight on Patrick Swayze? It was beautiful. What a beautiful love story. The love he and his wife had is rare indeed. I wish her well. I can imagine she is heartbroken right now.

Pancreatic cancer is a horrible cancer.

I have mixws feelings, because I liked him as an actor, especialloy in "Ghost". On the other hand he was an irresponsible individual who was intoxicated on June 1, 2000 when he landed his 1978 Twin engine Cessna 414, N414PS, in a housing development, smashinhg down a few light poles, nearly killing a family walking along the road. Then he paid some construction workers to hide the booze, and disappeared for 24 hours to get his alcohol level down. His explanation of the "crash" was absurd. He stated he "lost pressurixation". Fine. Continue the flight. You don't require pressurization at the altitude he was flying anyhow. The NTSB gave him a lesson by entirely dissambling his airplane, which, with a few on site repairs could have been flown out. This wasn't a minor mistake. His conduct warranted imprisonment. but, given his star status, the only people charged were the poor construction workers who got rid of the booze.
