I got to know Raylene in 2018 when she moved to London. I had just started a new position at work, and I asked Raylene for mentorship. Despite hardly knowing me, Raylene gave her time freely. It was the first time as an adult that anyone gave their full attention to how I was feeling. She taught me the power of voluntarily facing my problems, and talking them through together. I knew she always had my back. Her openness encouraged me to be open, and vulnerable. It begun a personal transformation that I am still going through today. Raylene, thank you.I recently spent time with Raylene at a conference in Malta. I didn't know she was coming and it was a wonderful surprise to see her. We ended up spending two days together in a small close-knit group. She was so happy, and her smile and laughter were infectious. As always, she radiated warmth, intelligence, and mischief. They will be my lasting memory of her.

I am shocked and saddened by the news of Raylene's passing and I would like to send my deepest condolences to her family and loved ones, especially to Steve who adored her more than anything. It was clear Steve and Raylene were - and will always be - soulmates.Raylene, Steve and I are former colleagues and traveled together to various events around the world in addition to seeing each other in London when they were in town. I have many memories of the experiences and laughs we had together, but would like to share some specific memories of Raylene from our time in Bogota. During this trip, Raylene invited my camera man and I to join her for lunch in the hotel cafe while the others were in meetings, she was so kind to us and we had a great time just chatting the afternoon away. One evening we all went to a fancy Michelin Star dinner and she and I laughed all night long at the shenanigans going on around the table, I will never forget that night. We also went on a coffee tasting together in Bogota, I recently found a picture from this activity and its all big smiles, especially Raylene's.Smiling, laughing and having fun are the most beautiful things in life and this is how I will always remember Raylene. I am so very sorry. Lots of love from London, Becky xo

Raylene helped and held all those that had the privilege to know her, I am beyond grateful for the years and memories of fun and mischief we shared, so many stories that end with riotous laughter… she was the truest of friends to me and all people blessed to call her friend…her smile lit up the darkest of rooms, her wise counsel a guiding light. Raylene was a mother, partner, wife, daughter, sister and friend to many. My sincere love and condolences to her sons Zaine and Tallen, soul mate Steve, father to her children Mark, her family and friends. I deeply miss this beautiful one of a kind soul, till we meet again my friend, love Karen x

Very sad to hear of Raylene passing. I worked with Raylene a few years ago and we had chatted socially as well. Raylene was always very pleasant and smiling. A lovely person. My thoughts go to Raylene's family at this difficult time and I hope this brings you some comfort.

We first crossed paths with Raylene few years back, yet it feels like we have known her for eternity. Her smile was mysterious and inviting, her laughter was contagious while her deep brown eyes cast sparking gaze. When she spoke about her children, she radiated happiness. When challenged, she could get fiery too, passionately standing for what she believed in.But what we admired the most is the incredibly deep and loving bond she shared with her soulmate Steve. Even after she passed, this bond remains unbroken, a testament to love that endures beyond the confines of time.Although we’ll never be able laugh together again, we will always cherish the moments we shared, as she left a lasting impression on everyone around her.With deepest sympathy and love, Matej and Barbara
