Sad, sad news… It has just been reported that the fabulous and oh so talented Patrick Swayze has lost his battle to pancreatic cancer.
I am just shocked right now. Dirty Dancing was my best friend from high school & my favorite movie! We even quoted it on our senior pages! Do any of you have as fond memories as Patrick as I do? Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Point Break, Donnie Darko…
but he’ll always be Johnny Castle to me!

This is so sad… I was hoping he’d beat it. After all this Kanye crap I wish they could be trading places… Patrick Swayze was a great talented man. RIP

🙁 so very very sad.
I was 8 years old when Dirty Dancing came out. my mom thought I was too young to watch it – so my aunt rented it one weekend that I was spending the night and hooked 2 vcr’s together and made me a copy! lol. Literally ever since that night DD became my absolute most favorite movie of ALL TIME and ALWAYS WILL BE.
I am so very very sad. 🙁
happy though that he is no longer in pain.
Rest in Peace, Johnny.

I am so sad to learn of this, especially sad for his wife who has been by his side for over 24 years.
A big loss, but he left a beautiful legaciy of work, life, and love behind him.
RIP Patrick. <3

So sad – but he really put up a good fight! They gave him 6 months to live, he made it over 2 years! I guess he is Dirty Dancing in heaven now!
