It's hard to say how much I respect and admire you. It feels like not so long ago that you were here at Christmas and were so happy and full of life.

I loved that despite what held you back you faced the world with a wild ferocity and lived your life how you wanted to live it.

I love you and miss you, but will never forget you. I hope you have found peace now.

Love always,

Dearest Jamie, I remember when Ian first brought you home to meet the family and I was blown away by your beautiful smile and big sparkly brown eyes. Right the next day I told all my friends about how beautiful Ian’s new girlfriend was and how happy and comfortable he was around you. I knew right then that Ian had met his match. The two of you shared a very special kind of love filled with quick witty humour, a dash of sarcasm and the ability to let loose, be silly and not take life too seriously. Seeing the two of you together always filled my heart with such joy that you two found one another.

Over the past 3 years you and I have become close friends and I’m so very honoured to have had you standing beside me at our wedding last year. I’ll always cherish the memories of us up at the lake playing hockey on the frozen lake, to us dancing the night away to the same song on repeat up in Penticton, to our walks and coffee dates with our pups! Ps thanks for teaching us all that we know about how to be a good pet parent, Kaiser wouldn’t be the pup he is without you and Sammy showing us the reins.

Your strength, perseverance and zest for life is truly inspiring. You never let anything get you down or hold you back, no matter what life threw your way. You always lived life to the fullest and made every moment count. We miss you so much already baby girl and you will forever be in our hearts.

Rest in Peace sweet Jamiekins. We love you and know that we’re here taking care of Ian and your fur-child Sammy.

To all of Jamie’s family, our thoughts, prayers and love are with you.

All our love,
Lissa and Clint

Jamie, we're relieved you're no longer suffering or in pain.

I remember holidays together, always a few years apart, but as if no time had passed; camping in France, spotting horses in America, and trips to the pub in London.

You were so bright and positive, even when many people would have given up on making plans.

We all miss you.

My darling daughter, loved more than mere words can describe. Always ready to light up the world with those beautiful brown eyes, captivating and wise way beyond your years. My world is torn apart but I know that peace has come your way and that you rest easy in the knowledge of the immeasurable love that fills the void you have left. Thank you for teaching me about life, to do the right thing always and for allowing me to have the absolute honour of being your dad. I miss you Jamie and will love you forever. Dad.

We were lucky enough to have Jamie visit us a few years ago and it was wonderful really getting to know her. We will cherish our memories of her wonderful spirit and beautiful smile. We take comfort knowing that our husband and father, Gavin, will be looking after her. Our hearts go out to everyone who knew her. May you rest in peace, Jamie.
We will always love you.
Helen, Tara and Erin

We were never lucky enough to know Jamie as we live in Johannesburg South Africa and our paths only crossed when she was a little girl. But any person who loves dogs and horses and whom little children naturally go to has to be someone very special. To all our family our love. thoughts and prayers are with you at this hard time and always. Taken to soon but will live in our hearts for ever,
All our love
Pam, John, Kim, Ryan,Carrie and Cole

Beautiful Jaime was a blessing to our family, more importantly, to my little girl. Jaime was my daughter's first SEA and the bond between them started immediately. As a parent of a child with special needs you don't often come across those whose desire to help is rooted in sincerity and love. Jaime's was. From the first day, I thought I would have to stick around the classroom and help Adriana adjust and transition but Jaime kicked me out and said " I've got this" and I never worried again. Adriana grew so attached she would cry everytime Jaime would leave for her break and try following her. She loved and supported my daughter in ways a mother could only dream of. She saw the best in her and believed in her. She never once treated her like less, Jaime saw her as so much more than a diagnosis. I wish I got the chance to know her better and for longer. I wish Adriana had the chance to grow up with Jaime by her side. She made a difference in my daughter's life that can never be erased. Jaime left an imprint on our hearts and our lives and we will love her every single second of forever! I hope she checks in on us every once in awhile and plays with Adriana in her dreams.

I am deeply saddened and shaken by this news of your passing.
Although we went our separate ways after high school as many do, know that my fondest memories of growing up will always include you. I can still feel the warmth in the room when ever you laughed or smiled, it was contagious.
I am so sorry the end wasnt the outcome you deserved.
From many of us who lost touch with you, please know that we thought of you plenty and will love you always.
Run wild and free among the horses.

It’s been years since I’ve spoken to Jamie, for one reason or another, I’ll never know, but I think of her often and hearing this news tore out a piece of my heart. Jamie is a beautiful soul. I will always remember our hilarious memories, eating cheese, sneaking out, ordering endless amounts of pizza. We hung out a lot and when she became unwell a little less. I’m so sorry for your loss. Taken too soon, a beautiful angel now free. Miss you Jamie.

Dear Cheryl and Neil

We have known Jamie-Leigh since August 8, 1990, and witnessed her grow into a lovely young lady, determined to achieve whatever she wanted to. Her eyes lit up when speaking of horses, and dogs, and Kyle, and Ian (not necessarily in that order!), and enjoyed her career, always ready to help.

It was a real pleasure knowing her, and it is so painful to know her life was cut short so young, but we will remember her as always smiling, whilst merrily walking on her toes as a young girl with a glint in her eyes! We have many photos and memories as an infant, a little girl, a teenager at birthday parties, and a beautiful young and responsible adult.

Cheryl and Neil, we will continue to keep Jamie and both of you in our prayers and thoughts. May your hearts heal, and be filled with pride, for Jamie was a special individual that you both raised.

Thinking of you both and all her loved ones, and wishing you strength at this very sad time. God bless,

Cheryl and Jonathan
