Aww! I'm so sad to hear about this. ): I really love him; not romantically or anything, but I admire him. It's really sad that such a nice person has died. I loved his show The Beast on A&E, as well as several of his movies.

Especially To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything. :) That was a very funny movie.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this challenging time. I'm glad he is a happier place now.

Rest in peace, Mr. Swayze. You will be missed.

Well, he was seen smoking in his last days yes. But, for many sad folks quitting smoking seems to be impossible ~ even when its putting you in your grave. Patrick was highly talented person and will be missed by his family, friends and fans of his films.
