He's like the wind

As a child product of the 80's I am not going to pretend that Patrick Swayze's death has not affected me.
He was Johnny, afterall.

Like many other girls my age I absolutely loved the movie Dirty Dancing. Jennfer Grey was pretty, but had a funny nose- like me!
Her real name in the film was Francis. As we know- everyone referred to her as "Baby".

I had a Cabbage Patch Kid who came with the name Francis. I sent back the adoption forms in order to "legally" change Francis' name to..... you guessed it- "Baby".

To remember the Swayze in all his glory- ridiculously-sized mullet and all- here's him alongside another man who's untimely death affected me. Enjoy.

Pancreatic cancer is a son of a bitch. I am sad he is gone, but thankful that he is finally at peace. Did you know he filmed "The Beast" without pain killers?

Great post man. I love the Frances story. My old officemate was named Frances and her boyfriend's name was also Francis.
