Patrick Swayze – Our Neighbor

                          I have always loved Patrick Swayze – I first met Patrick and

                            his lovely wife “Lisa” at an Hollywood Star “Arabian Horse

                           Benefit ”  – Patrick & Lisa were so nice to my daughter and

                            I – Actress Heather H – we bonded immediately- because

                            my daughter – has had horses since the age of 5 – and

                            Trains horses when she is not on a set-

                               We lived in the same area as Patrick & Lisa in Southern

                            California – and one afternoon – when I was cleaning out

                             horse stalls –  Patrick & Lisa and brother Don – were

                             riding their horses by our ranch. Patrick stopped his

                             horse – and said “I know you” – and we all talked for

                              a while –  they were all wearing their “North & South”

                               jackets that morning – ( my girlfriend ) was the Casting

                               Director on that film.

                               About a year later – I saw them riding again – Patrick

                                asked me if I was “From Texas” and I told me – my

                               Dad was –  he told me  –  I reminded him of his Mom-

                               what a compliment-

                               Years later – I got to meet his incredible mother –

                                  Patsy Swayze – and my prayers go out to her and

                                her family.

                                One of the Hollywood Agencies I worked at represented

                                  Don Swayze – Patricks great brother- I loved working

                                 with Don.

                                  My daughters publicist in Hollywood- called us yesterday

                                   and reminded us of how much Patrick liked our family.

                                      Heather reminded Patrick of a young Lisa –

                                  I am sure Patrick is riding one of his beloved Arabian

                                    Horses in Heaven –   carollyn de vore

                                   My husband stills teases me – he says the only time I

                                    cleaned out horse stalls – is when Patrick was out

                                     riding (  p.s.  he’s right)
