Yesterday evening I received a text message on my phone from a friend telling me that Patrick Swayze had passed away. I have been a long time fan of Patrick, and always admired the actor for who he was in the movies as well as who he was outside of acting. He was a gentle and caring person, and was different from so many other actors.
I will never forget his performance in Dirty Dancing...my all time favorite movie EVER. Man, the guy could dance!
Thank you Patrick for entertaining our movie screens with fantastic performances and great movies like YOUNG BLOOD, GHOST, DIRTY DANCING, NORTH AND SOUTH and many, many more! You'll be forever in my heart and memory. RIP Patrick.
