Again, for the final time, I was ready to leave, for good. When my aunt was dying, my uncle was there the whole time to hold her hand…when he left the room for 5 minutes to feed their birds he got called back immediately cause she was breathing in a very scary way. We also fought, pushed ourselves beyond stress, and tested the limits of our relationship. In Dirty Dancinghe was Johnny Castle, a summer-camp dance teacher from the wrong side of the tracks, who falls in love with one of his pupils, Frances "Baby" Houseman, a teenage girl from a posh, uptight family whose world is rocked by Johnny's steamy dance moves. I am now making donations to PanCan in his memory — the least I can do for him. After that, as time goes on, it becomes merely the recounting of a story.
Patrick wanted to dance with me.

You all have such love and courage. Keep putting one foot in front of the other…and remember, your Buddy is with you every step!

Keep taking step after step, Lisa, and hopefully the next few days will turn out to be better than the past two!
