August 18, 1952- September 14, 2009Everyone has their movie that brings them back to a time in their childhood. Well, Dirty Dancing is that for me. All I wanted for my 4th birthday was this movie (on VHS, yikes!). My Dad and I would dance in the front yard and he would toss me around just like Jennifer Grey. Raymond even gave me the Anniversary edition a few years ago for my birthday. This movie encompasses everything I remember about my childhood, and I will always love Patrick Swayze (my Johnny!) for that. May he always rest in peace.
