    I remember someone telling me when I was coming out of a theater after watching Next of Kin,That I looked like Patrick Swayze.I just remember feeling so good that day.I mean theirs not alot of men who can say that they have been told that they look like one of the most sexyest men in Hollywood.When Patrick  passed away,I felt like I truly lost a brother.I’m just the kinda guy who always lets his heart get in the way,all the time.
