Elisabeth Kübler-Ross devoted her life to death, dying & learning from it.
Patrick Swayze kept saying he was OK. He lied. Honesty = dignity.

Google-me-bitch!    

it's so immature and dumb when people rejoice at someone's death. people have families and loved ones . if you have nothing nice to say why don't you just keep quiet? how would you feel if it was your husband/son and someone says burn in hell to u? gosh! makes me sick!

Hope his family finds comfort with good memories

pancreatic cancer and bone cancer 2 that are a death sentence. a matter of when not if. All that smoking didn't help the situation, either.

What is with comment #33 Jane? Where are you comming from to take time to send a comment like that? You are inappropriate and should be removed. Perhaps that is where you will be headed.

What a difficult last few months the family has had to deal with, this is a most difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Patrick is with the Angels now. We will miss you, Patrick. Thanks for sharing your talent with the world.
