Three years after his death, Patrick Swayze‘s wife of 34-years, Lisa Niemi, has started dating again. The 56-year-old has been spending time with Albert DePrisco, 57, a very successful jeweler, and things have gotten serious enough to where Lisa has met his parents.
A source close to the couple said the pair hit it off immediately. “Lisa and Albert were introduced by a mutual friend at a California gathering late last spring. From the moment they met, there was an attraction between them.”
After their first date they both decided Albert, from Boca Raton, FL, should extend his stay in California, to be with her. Since then the couple have been carrying on a long distance relationship, but since Lisa is a pilot, it hasn’t been a problem. She simply flies to Florida and visits Albert when the couple want to spend time together.
It’s great that Lisa has moved on with her life despite the horrible loss she suffered. Some people can never find the strength after such a terrible tragedy, but she has, and I think it’s fabulous. You only live once. Like they say, get busy living, or get busy dying. And clearly, Lisa has chosen life. You go, girl.
