Patrick Swayze 1952-2009

Patrick & Lisa: A Love Story

Soulmates and life partners, Swayze and his wife were each other's pillars of strength during 34 years of marriage


"We've always been a team. We raise horses together, run a music business and a wildlife preserve together," Patrick once said of Lisa (on vacation in Rome in 2005). "We have an unspoken language after all these years." Though the couple had hoped to have children after suffering a miscarriage on Valentine's Day in 1990, it wasn't to be. "We just missed our window; we got so focused on our world and our careers that we missed the boat," he told PEOPLE in 2007.
