Patrick Swayze's widow Lisa Niemi is preparing to spread her husband's ashes over their New Mexico ranch and grant his last wishes.
During a small ceremony, sometime before Christmas with Patrick's mother and brother present, Lisa plans to spread the ashes over an area where Patrick would often sit and watch his horses.
An insider reveals that this will be difficult for Lisa to do, but she wants to honor his final request. The insider says:
"Part of her was afraid that by dispersing his ashes, she'll lose that bond. The idea of saying a final good-bye was eating her up inside.
Lisa knows that Patrick absolutely would not want his remains 'in a jar on a shelf somewhere,' as he put it. He wanted to be in the place that he loved the most — outdoors on his ranch."
