A Final Farewell to Patrick Swayze

We just learned the tragic news that Patrick Swayze lost his bout with pancreatic cancer. He was 57 years old. It is heart-breaking to have watched someone who was once so full of life, lose a hard fought 20-month battle to this insidious disease.

I will always have a special place in my heart for Patrick Swayze since he starred in two of my all time favorite movies of the eighties and nineties - "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost." Who can forget his infamous line, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" or that final dance number at Kellerman's, or that unforgettable pottery wheel scene with Demi Moore?

In honor of his passing, we scoured the Internet to find our favorite film clips featuring Patrick Swayze. So get ready to remember the moments when so many us fell in love with this truly gifted performer...

Nobody puts baby in the corner...

What an amazing dancer...

Loved this scene from Ghost!!!

Our heartfelt thoughts go out to Patrick Swayze's wife, lifelong dance partner and soulmate Lisa. While he may be gone, his memory will live on for generations to come.
