Patrick Swayze died.

We all knew he had cancer, but I was hoping, you know? I fell in love with him when I saw Dirty Dancing in theaters, when I was a very impressionable 13 years old. (I saw it with a friend from the local stable where I was stabling my horse, Fred, a girl a year or so older than me. We were both mesmerized.)

I then watched North & South when someone was re-airing it in the post-Dirty Dancing Swayze popularity rise. I saw Ghost, Roadhouse, Point Break, and pretty much everything else he did in the years to come. I bought Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights sight unseen, because I knew he had a cameo in it.

I will miss him. :(
