Patrick Thomas O'Malley Jr.
June,1978 to October 19,1997

Patrick was killed in a car accident at the age of 19.
He was ejected from the car and not found for 17 long
hours. He laid along the side of a busy highway to die
alone. Patrick didn't have to die. His friends ran, they
chose to save themselves instead of him. I do not know
who wrote the poem below, but when I read it, it's as
if it's from him.....

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not
there to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me....... I wish so much you
wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking
of the many things we didn't get to say.... I know how
much you love me...... as much as I love you, and each
time you think of me I know you'll miss me too.....
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to
understand, that an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready
in heaven far above, and that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away,
a tear fell from my eye, for all life,I'd always thought
I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for and so
much yet to do... it seemed almost impossible that I
was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the
good ones and the bad... I thought of all the love we
shared and all the fun we had........ If I could relive
yesterday, I thought, just for awhile, I'd say goodbye
and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully
realized that this could never be, for emptiness and
memories would take the place of me..... And when
I thought of wordly things that I would miss come
tomorrow I thought of you, and when I did, my heart
was filled with sorrow... But when I walked through
heaven's gates, I felt so much at home... When God
looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden
throne, He said, "This is eternity and all I've promised
you", today for life on earth is past but here it starts
anew... I promise no tomorrow, but today will always
last... and since each day's the same day... there's no
longing for the past.... But you have been so faithful,
so trusting, so true... Though there were times you
did some things you knew you shouldn't do.... But you
have been forgiven and now at last you're free.... So
won't you take my hand and share my life with me?So
when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're
far apart... for every time you think of me, I'm right

here in your heart.
