Travis says I was entertained by the films I saw him in.

Thomma Lyn Grindstaff says RIP, Patrick Swayze. He was a fine man, a good actor, and an inspiration to so many.

Brooke says It's a shame that he had to leave this world so young yet, at least he isn't in pain anymore...

Once upon a time, I had pictures of Patrick Swayze up on my bedroom wall. He was dressed in Civil War-era finery as Orry Main from the 1985 miniseries 'North and South'.

Imagine my shivery delight as a young admirer - when I discovered that he was also a classically trained ballet dancer!

In honour of Patrick Swayze following his passing on Monday, I wanted to share these lasting images of his vitality, powerful grace and inner joy.

I'm sad at the loss of Patrick Swayze. I always liked his movies. Especially, Dirty Dancing. At least he's not suffering with cancer anymore.

What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful man, husband and actor. He was a great actor, dancer. May he rest in peace.

I had a huge crush on Patrick Swayze when I was a teen, I had pics of him up all over my room and Dirty Dancing was my fav movie. RIP

*sniffs* His poor family. I saw the interviews with them a few months ago. They were being so very brave. I can't imagine being that brave in that situation.

They were displaying old photos of Swayze on the news.....I had forgotten how handsome he was when he was very young. Through the years he began to loose his looks....I'm guessing it was the 3 packs a day. :-/

Have a beautiful day....

I too loved Patrick Swayze. Saddened that his time here on earth was cut short, but happy to know he isn't in any pain anymore.

Your WW matches my post from yesterday. So tragically sad. I'll miss him, despite his being a celebrity, I totally loved that man and felt like he was a part of my youth!

Amy said...

He's one of the few celebs who has passed recently who I have honestly felt sad about their passing... Dirty Dancing has been one of my favorites since a very young age. I lost my granddad to the same cancer. At least he's no longer in pain... :o(
