A Good Person, A Sad Loss

This is how I will remember Patrick Swayze.

A man who loved Arabian horses. He had the Straight Egyptian Stallion, Tammen until the horses death in 1999. I believe he did the top poster for charity. I know he was a successful actor, but to me he was Tammen's person.

  1. I loved him as an actor. I loved him more for being an actor who was also a decent human being.

  8. I didn't know he was a horse person. I knew him for his singing, acting, and dancing. I loved his movies. I also admired how he lead a decent private life. He and his wife loved each other and were a real couple. Nothing trashy like so many of today's so called stars. He was a good a decent man, one that you could see being a neighbor. He will be missed by many.

    My deepest condolences for his friends, family, and his many fans.

    Thanks for posting those photo's, I've seen many of him, but never those.

  9. I always thought that Patrick was a class act. Handsome, talented & respectable. When he became involved in Arabian horses, it was the icing on the cake. He left his mark on the hearts of many of us. Even though I did not know him personally, I felt like I did.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
