I have to welcome the end of what must have been the worst kind of suffering imaginable and I hope the end was peaceful.

RIP Patrick Swayze

Just heard the cancer got the better of him. He had roots here in ATX - some of my neighbors took dance classes from his mom. RIP.

I'll miss him. Hard not to enjoy watching Patrick on the screen. My favorite Swayze movies: Point Break and City of Joy.

Ask Steve Jobs. He has barely survived the variety he had... of course, it certainly makes it easier to purchase a new liver when you are a multi-gazillionaire - which Patrick was not.

I'm going to take the organ bank at their word when they say Jobs was the most ill person on the list when a matching liver became available.

Just heard this on the drive home. I will miss Mr. Swayze. The last of the Chunkindale Dancers has shuffled off this mortal choir.

Sorry to hear this. My uncle died of pancreatic cancer, my aunt told me just enough about the end to know it's truly excruciating.

Nobody puts Swayze in the coroner.

Sorry, I had to. He gave me some great memories and I hope the end was as pleasant as possible for him.

Swayze's brand of pancreatic cancer was not treatable. Jobs' was.

Jobs was essentially very, very lucky.

Patrick swayze-RIP

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/6619295.html

LOS ANGELES — Patrick Swayze personified a particular kind of masculine grace both on and off screen, from his roles in films like "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" to the way he carried himself in his long fight with pancreatic cancer. Swayze died from the illness on Monday in Los Angeles, his publicist said. He was 57.

Patrick Swayze (second from right) served as a father figure as Darrel in 1983's 'The Outsiders'
