the time of my life

So, another famous person died this year.

Patrick Swayze passed away today from pancreatic cancer. (Read the story here) I know he has been sick for a long time, but it is still sad. Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies of all time and I think Swayze was a wonderful dancer. He was inspirational.

I know that I didn't know him personally, but my heart goes out to those who did. It is sad that he died so young. I hope someday soon we are able to find a cure for some types of cancer. I have had some people in my family diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and luckily we have been able to catch it early. Unfortunately, some people, like Patrick Swayze, are not so lucky.
