June loved her family & friends and the Colorado mountains.  Following her wishes, the family will hold a private service.


We would like to thank the Hospice of Saint John in Lakewood for caring for her in her final days. 



She had selected the following poem to be read when the family scatters her ashes:


Remember me always but do not weep 

For I am around you and not asleep 

I am the Chinook winds that flow 

I am the diamond sparkling snow 

I am the golden fields of grain 

And the gentle drops of autumn rain

The love for my family will always be heard 

In the twitter and tweet that comes from each bird 

When you wake up in the morning hush 

I am the swift up-lifting rush of the birds in their quiet circling flight 

And I'm the moon and the stars that shine at night 

I'm the gold of the aspen trees each year 

And the bugling Elk if you listen you'll hear 

There's the snap - crack of lightening 

Bringing on thunders roar 

As the clouds come together like the slam of a door 

Mother Nature provided so that day or at night 

You may feel me or hear me though I am not is sight 

I'm all around you -- I did not die 

So remember me always and do not cry 

My soul lives forever on Earth, Air or Sky 

My love's all around you 

I did not die.
