Aw, Patrick…

Dear Patrick Swayze,

You could sing, you could dance and you could act. I grew up watching Dirty Dancing and wishing I had been cast as Baby (even though I was six when the movie came out). Best of all, you uttered my favorite line in movie history:


Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

I’m sad you’re gone, but I’m happy you’re no longer suffering.

Love, Shannon

    The words we all wanted to say.

    And he uttered that line SO WELL.

    RIP Swayzdog.

    🙁 My thoughts exactly.

    I know it has nothing to do with his career, but I have this special affection for any actor who, by all appearances, at least, has a stable and faithful marriage. Patrick Swayze is one of only a handful that I can think of who, to the best of my knowledge, falls into this category. I have always had a special soft spot for him because of it!

    You say it well, Shannon. He will be missed and well remembered, but his suffering is finally over.

    RIP to a man who truly deserves peace. What an amazing person he was.

    The good die so young. I liked him in Roadhouse, and Dirty Dancing. It’s not fair he couldn’t heal, but he’s in no more pain.

    We’ll miss you Patrick. 🙁
