Rest in peace Patrick. Swayze had died yesterday, September 14th 2009, at the age of 57, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. My thoughts and condolences go out to his wife, family, and friends.
He was one of my very first celebrity crushes because I was only about 7 or 8 years old when I first watched Dirty Dancing. My (now deceased, RIP) Nanny was babysitting me one afternoon and we were watching television together. Well, she had fallen asleep in the lazy-boy chair while I continued to watch TV on the floor. I watched the whole thing of Dirty Dancing. I probably shouldn't have been watching that at my age, lol. But since then, Dirty Dancing has remained my #1 favorite movie. And mostly because of Patrick Swayze being so sexy dancing in that film! I always wished that would happen to me one day. I would be Baby, my family would go to a boring summer camp, and then get my fling on with a very sexy, masculine dancer, and fall in looove.
Anyway, that would be my most prominent memory about Patrick Swayze. He will most definitely be missed.
