What a beautiful way to remember him. Whenever we think on Patrick Swayze, we always remember him as the sexy Johnny Castle standing tall and dancing sultry to the music with Jennifer Grey.

Lisa Niemi unveiled a new wax statue of her late husband, and joined him in balancing on a log over an imaginary lake – recreating the famous scene from Dirty Dancing when Swayze teaches Jennifer Grey's character the importance of balance in dance. Two years after his death, Niemi was honored to unveil the statue. "It became clear to me that someone had put a lot of love into this, for a man I loved so very much," she said.
