I am sad to learn that actor Patrick Swayze has passed away. However, it's good to know that he's no longer suffering from his cancer. It's odd because of the past celebrity passings that I have heard about, only two have really touched me. Those two being, actor Christopher Reeve and actor Patrick Swayze.
Both lived such a short life, yet both have accomplished so much in this world. I believe the world will miss Patrick and his "The Outsiders", his "North and South" and especially his "Dirty Dancing." It's funny because in my life I had a Patrick Swayze, who always reminded me of him when he smiled. I've moved on since then, but I've always remained a Swayze fan and I always will. Rest in Peace. Patrick.
