R.I.P. Patrick Swayze (1952-2009)

Can’t say as if I’ve been following Patrick Swayze’s recent trials and tribulations, especially his fight with cancer. Celebrity tabloid stuff like that bores me, and I never want to be one of those people who feed those hovering vultures that survive on exposing celebrity dirt. But I did know that Swayze had been sick for quite some time, and that it has hampered his ability to appear in movies and on TV. Which brings us to this sad news: Patrick Swayze has lost his two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, and has passed away at the age of 57.

Patrick Swayze is survived by his wife Lisa Niemi, brother Don, and and his mother.
