Niemi still sends text messages to Swayze’s phone

The actor/dancer lost his battle with pancreatic cancer a year ago (14Sep09) and, as the sad anniversary approaches, Niemi admits she finds herself following her long-standing tradition of texting Swayze before she steps on an airplane.

She tells People magazine, “I just put what I always did: ‘I love you’. And then I cried for a little bit to myself.

“It (text 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.”

Niemi admits the grieving process is still ongoing but she’s more confident about her future without Swayze.

She says, “I know he wanted me to be OK. And I am stronger now. The fact that I’ve had some good days definitely gives me hope that I can have more.”
