RIP Patrick Swayze  
I'm still at a loss about this. I saw The Outsiders as a teenager in school, my mom, my sisters, and I watched Ghost and Dirty Dancing together countless times, and he's always been a family favorite. It was heartbreaking to have read this fifteen minutes ago.

Rest now, Patrick. You've earned it. And watch out for my Nana. You may just get a kiss on the way in the gates. You were her favorite modern actor behind Richard Gere. :D

I think this has just broke the camel's back. He was just 57. :(

But it's like a catalyst for something as I'm suffering an emotional meltdown over here. I'm like a flaily!flail fish of hormonal proportions.

Oh, sweetness, why do you have to be an ocean away? *snugs you long-distance and covers you with kisses* Don't cry, Rae.

:( And I don't swim that well. Only when I'm flat on my back.

*Hugglesmishes supertight*

I know it sounds stupid but it just hit me, he was 57, my Mum is 52 and she had cancer. She's in remission now *Knocks on wood* but it could have been her. It's like I suddenly get reminded that the disease does kill people.

What with the emotional cartwheeling of the weekend, I'm just done. I'm done with all of it.

*snuggles you tight, rocks you, and hums*

I've been there, honestly been there, and I know what you mean, love. It's tough and cancer does run in my family, too. It's not easy, and it will never be easy, to deal with the aftermath of the disease. All we can do is try to cope.

And if I hadn't given my condolances on your u7ncle yet, let me do them now. I'm so sorry, bb. it's an awful, awful thing.

If you're coming to San Diego CC in 2010 we shall have merry joyous times. I'm still trying to tally costs but it is looking like a 95% triumph. :D It's only dependent on me having somewhere to stay. >>Hotel obviously but I wouldn't even know where to begin about looking for one.

It feels like every bad emotion I've ever had is jacked up in that one word; cancer. Someone says it and I fall into a whirligig of emotional turmoil. It only lasts a little while but I'd rather do without it.

*Hugs more* This is why I love you, you totally get what I'm trying to say and don't make me feel stupid for saying it.

It's such a stupid disease MN's. It affects the males like once ever 7 generations if at all. How messed is that? No rhyme or reason more than that. No one deserves that disease and I feel horrible saying it but I just wished it had picked someone else. Someone not related to me y'know.

It is sad times we live in, sad times.

Wow, that's really sad- he was so young too.

This is almost freaking me out though- it seems every time I go on the computer another famous person has died. And on top of that three people at my Mom's work recently passed away... I'm sure this is just coincidence but still, weird.

I know what you mean. I'm almost to the point of going and locking Margot up in a medical facility just for her own safety. That's the one I keep praying for as so many pass. *is horrified by the thought of that one and pushes it away*

It scares me just how many of them are passing lately. It seems like most of my childhood is drifting away forever. :(

Oh, how sad. I've also loved his work, along with Richard Gere, too. Way, way too young to go.

RIP Patrick...
