Patrick Swayze's Ashes To Be Spread Over New Mexico Ranch By His Wife

| Filed under: R.I.P.Patrick Swayze


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."

So sad.

    …ashes have to go back into the universe or the soul feels trapped. And yet I keep my dog's ashes in a cherry box. Mybad.

    R.I.P. Patrick~ What a fantastic celebrity marriage/romance. Such a rare thing in Hollywood. These 2 were together since they were 14 & seemed to know the true meaning of marriage. More celebrities should take a cue from Patrick & Lisa before taking the plunge! (hint, hint, Khloe Kardashian/others)

    Good one about the cigarette ashes! LOL.

    seriously, Lisa, spread 94% of the ashes, and take the rest and put them in a locket or something, or inhale them, or rub them on your chest, or keep them in a thimble or whatever. we're all just atoms.

    I say screw it. Scatter some of his ashes, and keep the rest if you need his remains close to you. (I certainly would not want to lose my husband to the four winds.) He was a great guy and all, but he's not going to know whether he's sitting on the mantel or out on the desert with the horses. The remains are for the living. If it's causing Lisa more heartache to scatter the ashes, she should keep some.

    Beautiful! Honor him, as he wished.

    Patrick aka Buddy would want to be at the place he loved the most. It is hard to let go but we still need to remember how difficult this is for Lisa. The holidays are the hardest when your loved ones are no longer with you.
    Be Strong Lisa……………………..
