    I want to thank you all for coming today to help us celebrate Jaylene’s life and share our grief at her passing. My name is Michael Playfair and I became a part of Jaylene’s family about 21 years ago when I got together with her twin sister Gaylene. I first met Jaylene on a summer afternoon in 1994 when Gaylene brought me to her home in Mayland Heights. I was welcomed and made to feel at home by Jaylene, her family and the legendary Arbie Fisher, Jaylene’s Mom who happened to arrive at the same time as us, and under full sail. I remember a lot of laughter, loud voices, food, beer and a future Mother-in Law glaring at me quizzically. It was a rich first impression of my new Calgary ‘family-to-be.’ Jaylene and family eventually moved up to Marlborough where they bought a house. The door there was always open for visits, hanging around in the backyard, garage, gazing under the hoods of cars and always a cold beer. There were family ‘occasions’ and holiday dinners with huge food undertakings and always the dogs and cats adding to the chaotic scene. There were often new faces showing up – friends of the kids, co-workers, neighbours. Jaylene was like a Mom to everybody. She was a good listener and inquisitive, wanting to know your details but in a caring kind of way. She was a caregiver herself in many ways who offered counsel to those who needed it. She put everyone ahead of herself. A few years back, she even took in a friend of Josh’s, Lance, for a few years after his Mom had passed away.

    Something else I always admired about Jaylene was her strong-will and ability to manage everything she did with work, home and family. She had routines for keeping things running smoothly and a strong work ethic. Her hard-working, nature was instilled in her at a young age. Her Mom Arbie and step-Dad Billy Sim were both industrious and gave the twins chores to do teaching them that helping out around the house was part of the drill in the household and would also result in getting paid an allowance. They also helped out with their Mom at Billy’s furniture store.

    Later, in High school, the girls found themselves on the way to being self-sufficient by working on weekends at the top of Calgary Tower with their Aunt Lynn who managed the revolving restaurant. After high school, Jaylene moved quickly into the full-time working world and became established as a dedicated employee. She used her skills in management in a few different jobs before starting a long career at Carewest Dr. Vernon Fanning Centre in Food Services.

    Jaylene was disciplined, efficient and organized in her working life but home life was where her heart was. She and her daughter Amanda were very close and best friends and she loved her son, Josh. Rocky’s daughter, Shandi, older sister to Amanda and Josh was an integral part of the family also. Her children meant everything to her and they were the central focus of her life. She always said “I’m proud of my kids.” Jaylene had a tremendous Drive to Live and she lived life the way she wanted to. Even after years of cancer treatment, Jaylene stuck to her principles and did what she wanted to be doing. Giving up was not a part of the plan. She kept on going and going, exhibiting unbelievable strength. If I were to take something from my observations of Jaylene over the years, it would be to work hard and live your life the way you want to. Sometimes you will run into obstacles but with perseverance you can maybe overcome them and be free. Jaylene battled for this but unfortunately had to leave us in the process. I will always remember her for her free spirit and courage in the face of tremendous adversity.
    Thank You
