Jackie Horner,
story consultant, Dirty Dancing

To Mr. Patrick Swayze,
who is still inspiring—helping me through challenging times and motivating me to follow my dreams.
I am so grateful to have met you, to have your wonderful legacy of work to enjoy, and to have your amazing spirit—whose light shines so bright—as such an inspiration.
