    He was in my top 10 favorite celebs. I was holding onto hope that he'd make it through.

    Didn't he amazingly manage to play one last role in a series despite being desperately ill? Originally he was only given months to live but survived much longer and managed to work . That's an incredible achievement for such an ill man. All best wishes to his family at this difficult time.

    RIP Patrick. I loved him in Donnie Darko and To Wong Foo.

    I believe I read that they didn't renew it for a second season because he was sick and they didn't want to do the show without him.
