Patrick Swayze’s Last Words
Patrick’s health had been declining ever since he received his diagnosis, but it was pneumonia that seemed to push the actor out of this world and into the next, as per his complicated religious beliefs. He spent his last few days at his California ranch home.
Despite Patrick spending his final days in his favorite place, those days were not easy for him. He had been described by a close friend of the actor as “sickly”, “riddled with injuries”, “emaciated”, and in “excruciating pain”.
