Let the memory of James be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of James Hamilton. It is difficult for me to write this because he wouldn't want anything too cheesy or sentimental. James had many talents from snowboarding, playing guitar, and tattooing.

Over the last few years, his health had been in serious decline and he had tried to downplay it and mostly hide it from his friends.  He had told me many stories about many of you that had counted him as a friend. I encourage you to share your stories and memories.

We will remember him forever (even though he could be a cranky bastard but he was OUR cranky bastard).

In accordance with his wishes, there was no service and his ashes will be scattered in Flagstaff. I have some of the memorial cards I had printed left. If anyone would like one, please message me.

(This site is a major work in progress as I try to work through my grief.  As the shock begins to wear off, hopefully I'll get my brain back and I can fill this in some more).

"I just (forceably) signed up for FB messenger and while checking it out, found a letter from James telling me that he has been looking for me for four years, and that I was one of his rare true friends. He left me his phone numbers, and when I couldn't reach him, I looked for his FB page and thought it was a joke. I still cannot believe he is gone. Please tell me this is not real! I am beside myself with grief. I need to know what happened. He was too young and vivacious. He will be missed!"

"I took care of James from November 2014 until the end. Through multiple long term hospital stays and endless doctor visits. There was plenty of good food and video gaming in between. I loved, cared for, and fought for him as if he were my son and I always will."
