Good Bye Patrick Swayze

You were one of my first crushes...

I loved you as the caring older brother in The Outsiders.

Was afraid for you in Red Dawn.

Loved your man in uniform look in The North & The South.

Wanted to take dancing lessons from you in Dirty Dancing.

And Pottery Lessons after watching Ghost.

Considered surfing because of Point Break.

And just adored looking at you in Road House.

I even enjoyed your performance in To Wong Fu Thanks For Every Thing Julie Newmar, but had a hard time looking at you as a woman...

I will continue to watch your movies every chance that I get.

(August 18, 1952 - September 14, 2009)

You will be missed...

My condolences to your lovely wife, Lisa Niemi.

I forgot he was in North & South--oh how I crushed on him in that!

Very sad. :-(

I loved him in the Outsiders. Knew exactly, the moment I saw that picture that that was the movie...

He will forever make everyone, male or female for ages to come, want to be a better dancer...all because of Dirty Dancing.

For sure!
