Farewell Patrick

It has been over a week know since the passing of amazing entertainer Patrick Swayze who lost his 20 month battle with pancreatic cancer at age 57.

We will remember him as the star of some of the most famous movies to hit cinemas, from the great dance flick Dirty Dancing where he played Johnny Castle to the tear-jerker Ghost where he played Sam Wheat.

Patrick will greatly be missed by all.
