Funny, outgoing, intelligent, and kindhearted are just a few words to describe Max Carbone. He was a hard worker who loved and cared for others. He was a selfless person who would do anything to help someone. There was never a time that you would be greeted by him without seeing his big beautiful smile. Max was truly an incredible person loved by so many. This fund has been created for a memorial scholarship in honor of our beloved Max Carbone.

Sharing today's sunrise as we remember Max on his 20th birthday.

Thanks to your generous gifts, Max’s Scholarship Fund has raised over $100,000! A beautiful legacy we will be able to share with the community - and kids like Max.

I have posted the individual picture videos from Max's service for those interested. Go to vimeo.com/search. Type MXC in the search field and then click the Channel button to the left.

Thank you for your ongoing love and support.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. I know you have a unique level of empathy for me and I wanted to thank you for your ongoing support.

This week in Max’s bureau, I found a Mother’s Day card Max had written for me (well in advance - impressive in its own right). I am so grateful for such a beautiful gift and will treasure it forever. I wanted to share it with you as it exemplifies Max, and also our relationship.

The beauty is that Max felt that way about all the special relationships in his life. He loved deeply and openly. That made his life rich and meaningful. If you were special to Max, you knew it.

Pay it forward this Mother’s Day.

With all my love,
Jen Carbone

On April 6th, we got the call that every parent fears. As the traumatic events unfolded, our community immediately rushed to help us in our greatest time of need. Stunned and grieving our unimaginable loss, we were lifted up by each of you, and your love and support. The overwhelming outpouring of compassion and generosity surrounded us and held us together as we began to face the reality that Max was suddenly gone from our lives forever.

We were so fortunate to have Max in our lives. He was a special kid; sweet, loving, happy, thoughtful and kind. He loved his life and everyone in his world. He was surrounded by a community who loved him dearly. Thank you for giving him that incredible gift.

We will never be able to adequately express our gratitude for your generous donation to the Max Carbone Memorial Scholarship Fund. We are so pleased to share your gift with future Swampscott High School graduates to help support their academic pursuits and dreams. We look forward to awarding the first annual Max Carbone Memorial Scholarship to the Swampscott High School Class of 2020.

I remember how excited Max was when he was awarded scholarships at his Swampscott High School graduation. Your donation will give other kids in our community that same pride and promise - a beautiful legacy for Max. I can just feel Max smiling his big, beautiful smile down on us. He would be so happy to pay it forward.
We will be forever grateful for your love, generosity and support.

We love you all so much!
Jen, Marc and Julia Carbone
