Patrick Swayze

I was so sad to hear that Patrick Swayze finally succumbed to his pancreatic cancer. For a while there, he was the star of two of my favorite movies - "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost". I know he starred in a lot more movies than just those two, but in my heart, he will always be remembered for those specific two. Especially Dirty Dancing. He made that movie what it was.

Something else that always touched me about Patrick Swayze was the fact that he was one of the few Hollywood stars who actually seemed to be in love with his wife. Every interview I ever saw him do, he talked about his wife Lisa and credited her with his success and happiness. They met when they were young, teenagers I think even, and were married for 34 years. I can only imagine what his wife is feeling now, and my heart truly goes out to her. They didn't have any children, so losing him must be devastating.

This has truly been the year for celebrity deaths, hasn't it? Iconic Celebrities. Patrick Swayze was definitely an icon. Pancreatic Cancer has only a 5% survival rate within 5 years of diagnosis, but he fought the battle with the disease with honor. He will always be remembered, and he will definitely be missed.
