Sad news via the Associated Press:
LOS ANGELES – Patrick Swayze, the hunky actor who danced his way into viewers’ hearts with “Dirty Dancing” and then broke them with “Ghost,” died Monday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.
I would find this quote maudlin and humorous, except one of those hearts was mine. He lived like a loner, fought like a professional, and loved like there was no tomorrow. Patrick, you will be missed.
