Mourning the Loss of Patrick Swayze!!

When Patrick Swayze was originally diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January of 2008, I offered up prayers for him and did a post asking others to pray and sign a public get well card for him. Swayze fought the deadly cancer and continued acting and living life, but unfortunately, lost his battle with cancer yesterday at the age of 57.

Dr. Jeffrey Hardacre told Fox News that Swayze defied the odds because most people that are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only live 3-6 months, and Swayze lived for over a year and a half.

I think many viewed Swayze as one of the "good guys" in Hollywood. I know I did. Any woman that was a teen in the 80's fell in love with him in the movie Dirty Dancing. My other favorites were:
--The Outsiders
--Point Break

Also, no one will ever forget his hilarious SNL skit with Chris Farley. Its hard to believe that they are both gone now.

May God comfort his family and friends during this difficult time. My prayers and thoughts are with them. He will be greatly missed!
