Patrick Swayze penned his memoir "The Time of My Life" in the months after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis. The actor made peace with his fate, saying, "It's been an amazing ride. So this is okay."
Swayze also wrote about his 34-year marriage to wife Lisa Niemi. "How grateful I am that you chose to love me," he wrote. "I know that because of you, I've found my spirit. I saw the man I wanted to be. You are my woman, my lover, my mate and my lady. I loved you forever, I love you now and I will love you forever more."
"The Time of My Life" is scheduled to be released Sept. 29.
