I'm crying as I type this. He was such an amazing actor. I watched Dirty Dancing as a little girl, even though I probably shouldn't have, but I loved it so much. Ghost was so amazing. I saw other films of his which names escape me right now. I am very happy that the Lord has brought him home where there is no more pain and suffering but I am so sad that we have lost a true legend. He was truly amazing and will live on forever in his classics. God bless his family. RIP.

Deepest sympathy to his family.He will be surely missed!His career surely was wonderful!! He always seemed to maintain his dignity, and humility,even when he was so ill.If a few other hollywood types would try to see his example of what a real star should behave like, it would certainly help. He was a class act!!
His sex appeal was graceful, and exciting on screen!His movies/tv series will always be bitter sweet to view. May God bless you Mr. Swazye, from Houston, Texas we love ya!
