Los Angeles: The wife of late Hollywood actor Patrick Swayze, Lisa Niemi says that she continues to send text messages to her husband, who lost his battle to cancer last September.

The 54-year-old who was married to the `Dirty Dancing` star for 34 years said that she is used to sending him text messages and continues the habit, reported People online.

"I still send him text messages. I just put what I always did, `I love you`. And then I cried for a little bit to myself," said Niemi who is observing the first death anniversary of her husband.

"It (text message) didn`t come back. So either somewhere out there he received it, or someone`s going, `Somebody loves me!` And you know what? I figured it was a win-win situation," Niemi said.

Swayze died due to pancreatic cancer on September 14 last year. Next week will be the first anniversary of the actor who gained heartthrob status with hits like `Dirty Dancing` and `Ghost`.
