If I were to be lost,

In a more pleasant spot,

The forest is where I’d like it to be.

With the sound of the wild,

And the rustle of the trees,

I could stay there eternally.

For with blue jays blending so true,

And the green grass reaching my eye,

I could be lost there eternally.

Or at least until I die.


Private family services are planned for a later date.

Memorial contributions can be made in Patricia’s memory to the Jehovah’s Witnesses church of Lakeview, 1520 N 2nd Street, Lakeview, OR 97630, or to the charity of the donor’s choice.
