We think about you daily. We miss you.
james your missed everyday that passes u are always thought of ....
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
By Christina RossettiThe Poetry Foundation
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Merry Christmas James - I see the pictures of different Christmas years on the photo album and it's still weird to think that was only a number of years ago. That picture of you, Mary and your mom is beautiful, taken only a few months before. I still think about you all the time. Hope you're doing well baby James, take care of your family. Always - Tarra
I still think about you everyday, even though it's been a year i'm still having a hard time believing that your gone. I miss you so much James, keep shining down on us, love ya.
I can't believe it has almost been a year.I think of the family often and hope the memories are keeping them going. With love, Patty (Jan's sister)
Its coming close to a year of your death sweetheart.. and your 22nd birthday was just a number of weeks ago... remembering you day by day is easy. we miss and love you very much - its still weird, after a whole year has gone by, that you're still gone. we know death is permanent, but that doesnt mean it gets easier to understand. take care of mary and your parents james, they deserve it. with love from minnesota ~ Tarra
James, In the short amount of time I got to know you, you got me through some of the hardest times of my life and was there for the best times too. Your fearlessness was contageous and I thank you for that.
I have not met any of James' parents, although I did meet Mary once. James used to come to my house every day while he was at Elk Grove High. I have not seen him in a very long time but when I heard of his passing it hit me very hard. He was a great person who I will always have fond memories of. R.I.P James

Julie, Jim and Mary.
We would like to express our deepest sympathy and offer our hearts to you and your significant others. Our thoughts and prayers shall include James always! What a wonderful, spirited young man! We had the pleasure of sharing only a few special moments with James, but what a joy James brought to everyone in our family. We shall cherish the wonderful memories of walking on the beaches of Cambria, fun around the Christmas tree in New Jersey, and those quiet, shared moments.
You're loved, James! Rest in peace.
Love, Skip & Kathy Edwards (parents of Andrea Edwards)
Jim, Julie and Mary...
No words can take away the pain you must feel. My thoughts and prayers are with you. While everyone was there saying their goodbyes, I spend my time here in Arizona reading all of the wonderful things everyone wrote about James in this guest book. It's nice to know the people around the world feel the same as I do. I have many memories of my life of 40 years in Elk Grove and your family is in alot of them. I will never forget them.
Everyone comes into our life for a reason, it's our job to figure out why.
Julie, Jim, and Mary,
I can only imagine the grief and loss you must be feeling. I remember James' sweet smile as I held him as a baby, that same smile playing with him as a toddler in Crystal Lake, and seeing it again at the Thanksgiving party. What a fine young man. May you find some comfort in God's same infinite Grace that has welcomed James into His embrace.
Jim, Leona, and Eric
Jim,Julie and family,

I am Andrea Lemus's son, I am sorry to hear of your loss. May god heal all, take James into his arms and hold him close until we are all brought home to join him.
Dear Jim,Julie and Mary, Please accept my most sincere sympathies for your loss of James. Remember that we are the Ressurection people and especially here at Easter, we celebrate our immortal souls. Let our collective love and Spirit embrace you at this difficult time. We cannot know our Father's plan. Hopefully we turn to Him, not away. Peace always, Vince White
To The Carbine Family,
Our deepest condolences and prayers are with you. Our daughter Cydney Tonkin had gone to school with James since the 5th grade and was friends with him through junior high and high school. I know his peers just loved him. We would hear lots of funny stories that included the name James Carbine and that made us feel as though we knew him too. James touched many people directly and indirectly. Our family is deeply saddened to learn of James passing. Cydney will be saying good-bye to James tomorrow at his service with a heavy heart.
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child, and siblings. We are praying for your strength for the days ahead.
With Deepest Sympathy,
The Tonkin Family
James you were the cutest white every!!! I love you, and you will be in my heart forever. I will never let the impact you made on my life be forgotten. You will stay with me forever. Please stay by my side until we meet again.
James was one of the most wonderful friends in the world to have. The energy that he dispalyed was truly one-in-a-million.My heart dropped when I heard James was no longer with this world. My thoughts and deep prayers go to Jim, Julie and his beloved sister Mary. He always thought so much of his sister when he had talked about her while living in Minnesota as my roommate for 2 years. I feel like I know alot about you Mary. Your brother will always be a true medal in my heart. Many tears and prayers are being felt in Minnesota. Bless you James. James had a sticker he had left in his room in our river apartment before he left to go back to Sacramento. It read:"Were all in this together" with an Earth symbol next to it. He truly believed that.......
Dear Julie: We are terribly saddened to hear about your loss and will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Jon and Barb Martin
Jim, Andrea, and Family
Please accept our sympathy in your time of sorrow. May God bless him and keep him safe.

I did not know James very well, but whenever I would see him at school he was always very nice and always had a big smile on his face. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
May the Good Lord give you strength during this tragic time of your life..you are in our prayers.
I just recently met your son, he had been working for my employer. Even though our interaction was brief, James made enough of an impact on me , that I felt compelled to write you today. James had a firm handshake, an aura of confidence and he was exceedingly polite. It was apparent that he was raised very well. I can't imagine your grief. I pray for your family to be comforted in the future.
Jim, Julie, Mary & Family,
I am so sorry for your loss.
I had not seen James since he was a little boy in Crystal Lake until I had a brief chance to meet him at our annual Thanksgiving party. I could see why Jim was beaming with pride; for it was obvious he and Julie had raised a friendly, confident and kind young man. My thoughts and prayers are with all who knew and loved him.
May God bless your family and give you strength during this time of sorrow. Doug & Linda Rice

Dear Julie, Mary and loved ones of James,
James was a very special young man and even though our encounters were brief they were very memorable.
May the warm memories you shared with James soothe you in this time of sadness and help you find peace.
My prayers are with you.
Dear Jim, Julie and Mary,
It's so hard to find words for something like this. I can't even begin to understand how difficult this is for all of you and the rest of the family. I will remember James as a baby because I used to bounce him around in the dining room as we made funny faces in the big mirror. We spent many holidays together and he was always so much fun to be around. Anyone who knew him, will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I hope somehow, you can take comfort in knowing that he is in a much better place and I'm sure by now "Pop Pop" is holding on to him tightly. God bless you all and fill your hearts with love. Michelle
My name is Sandy; I am the mother of Kyle Van Vleck. Kyle is presently in Kuwait, but already heard the news of your loss, and is deeply saddened. He called his sister, Vanessa, who is currently living in Los Angeles, and she called me. I know that Kyle would want me to let you know that you are in his thoughts, and in mine.
I am very sorry for your loss.
HI JULIE & MARY
AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY,
MAY GOD GIVE YOU PEACE DURING THIS TIME AND THE YEARS TO COME. I LOVE YOU JULIE, YOU WERE THE BEST JOB SHARE PERSON EVER. BE STRONG.
James, what can I say. Everyone in Minnesota will always forever love and miss you. you left such an impact on all of us - i remember the days we rode the bus together to high school when you were here. I remember the days we used to live together in minneapolis and caused trouble :) remember the week i stayed with you and mary and julie over spring break? we had so much fun! We truly love you James and will always remember the goofy kid you were. always smiles and full of laughs are just a few things that come to mind when we think of the "great james carbine from california" We really feel honored to have known you james, you had such a good heart and your spirit till holds strong with us. thank you for that.
love you James, see you soon
You will forever be in our hearts.. You were always around, just when I needed company..I always remeber you jogging or skateing around the park.I remember when you got your car and you came over to show it off.. OR that time you woke me in the middle of the night bang'n on my door looking for Jammie..You were so eager to apologize the next day..Thanks for all the nice things you did for me.. As well as being sweet to my kids.. You will never be forgotten.. I wish you didn't have to go....
I dont know what to say except for I cant believe this is real...it feels like a dream so far from reality...Julie and Mary i dont know if you remember me but i dated James for a few months about 3 years ago and words cant describe how sorry I am. James was a great person and he will be missed a great deal...i love you James rest in peace...
I never knew him, however I am a Carbine too. My family wants to pay our respects. Stacey Carbine ( my mom), Mike Carbine (my granfather) Genevieve (patsy) Carbine (my grandmother). We have been looking for more Carbine's and I am sorry Ihad to find them like this. Best wishes to the family. Genni Gutierrez ( Carbine ).
Julie,Mary and family,
My sister Jan called me on Friday and my thought's have been with all of you ever since. My heart goes out to the family. I know how close James and David were and I know how much James will be missed. Much love,Patty ( casey )
To Jim and his family,
I knew James only briefly, and I immediately thought he was a wonderful kid. He radiated kindness. My heart goes to his father, Jim, an old friend, whose love for James was so apparent. I wish I knew the words to comfort the family. May the love that surrounds them help them heal.
You always brought laughter to our house. You were a very special young man and you will be missed very much.
The Raposo family
Dear Julie, Jim and Mary.
There are no words to describe how sad Trudy, Jeff, Justin and I were after having heard about James. James was one of a special club of youngsters that grew up on Voos Court. James and Mary are mentioned and remembered frequently by our family. We watched James grow up and were sad to see the Carbines move from Voos Court. James loved living on Voos Court and we loved having him and his family here. Memories will keep James alive in our hearts and minds. I have tears for James as I write....tears for a Special Kid. Stay strong and hug each other alot. The Toll family will never forget James.
Radiant within the darkness,
there is a place of light-
where memories are cherished,
where joys are celebrated,
where LOVE will always dwell.
In the memories you cherish, may you find peace.
In sympathy and caring-
To Jim, Andrea, Julie, and Mary - along with all others who had the priviledge of knowing James.
I only had the opportunity to meet James once, but he was the most positive, generous, and warm hearted young man that I had met in a really long time, and that's saying a lot because I teach high school. His father, Jim's, fiancee is my sister, and James welcomed me and my family into his family with open arms and a barrage of questions wanting to get to know us as well as he could. I was immediately impressed, and knew that this young guy would share many memories and great times with me. Also, from knowing his father, I know just how large a part he played in both Jim and my sister's (as well as Mary's) lives. Jim lives for his kids, and I wish more than anything that I could do something to take away the hurt that he is feeling. I wish so much that I had gotten to know James better, but I take comfort in knowing that he is in a good place, and that he had a hugely positive influence on many.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his mother, Julie, his family, as well as Rachel and his other friends. I am honored to have known him.
All my best, Rachel Edwards
Julie and family,
Although I have not seen you for some time, I am deeply sorry to hear about James. I remember many, many fun times with your family when Josh and James were young and we are both really sad to hear about James. I know there are no words that can express enough sympathy for what you are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
YOU WERE A GOOD KID JAMES AND I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS. YOU HAD SUCH A GREAT LIFE AHEAD OF YOU HERE ON EARTH BUT YOU WILL HAVE AN EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE LIFE IN HEAVEN. AS YOU KIDS WOULD SAY, PEACE OUT JAMES. WE LOVE YOU AND ONE DAY WE WILL ALL SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN.
I feel privileged to have known this man since he was an infant. He is the son of two people who I am lucky to count as my friends. James had a great knack with people. He had a warm and generous personality that invited people to him; his compassion poured out of him. His vibrant soul will be missed. I feel very fortunate to have witnessed him become a positive, loving and generous man. Our world has lost a great human, in mind, spirit and soul.
We are very sad for Jim, Julie and Mary. May you find some peace in knowing James left a HUGE impact on us. God's peace be with you all.
