In Memory Of . . .

 Cathy (Drake) O’Leary

January 1, 1960 – June 16, 2010

Please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
   
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
   
I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
   
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers, of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
   
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
 
 When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
 
 I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, I'm everyplace!

We love and miss you so much!

Melissa, Michael, Brian, Mom, Dad, Trish, Kenny and the rest of your family and friends

  1. A life well lived is one that is remembered even with the passing of time. Your sister clearly must have lived such a life and therefore you are blessed to have had her as a part of your life. Always give thanks to God as you thing of her for the time you had with her for many have not been so fortunate.

  3. I'm so sorry about the tragic news. I cannot even imagine how you must be feeling right now. I wish moments as these would never come to people's lives. I don't know whatelse to say.. I'm truly sorry.
