Patrick Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi says she still sends text messages to her late husband.
Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer a year ago, and Niemi has been keeping up the couple’s tradition of texting each other before she steps on an airplane.
She told People: “I just put what I always did – ‘I love you.’ And then I cried for a little bit to myself.
“[The message] didn’t come back. So either somewhere out there he received it, or someone’s going, ‘Somebody loves me!’ And you know what? I figured it was a win-win situation.”
She adds that she’s still grieving, but feeling a bit stronger about her “overwhelming” loss.
“I know he wanted me to be OK,” she said. “And I am stronger now. The fact that I’ve had some good days definitely gives me hope that I can have more.”
Strength and honour to you, sweetheart!
