March 22, 2019 "May the God of peace continue to be with the family. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers." - Velesa Cole (Flint, MI)
March 21, 2019 "My deepest heartfelt sympathy for the loss of this truly wonderful man. My parents were both staunch Democrats until their deaths. They always supported and campaigned for Mr. Bayh.
During his time in the Senate, and in 1971-72 I was serving in the Vietnam war. I wrote to the Senator and asked for both an absentee ballot and a flag from our great state of Indiana. He happily sent both. Because of the Constitutional Amendment he sponsored, I had the chance to cast my very first election vote.
I am so glad I had the opportunity to help keep Senator Bayh in Office." - Roger Conn (Carmel, IN)
March 20, 2019 "To the Bayh family I extend my deepest condolence. After reading about his passing I wanted to let you know you're not alone in the loss of someone special. Keep the memories of him alive and know that as long as you do your love for him will remain afresh and ever apart of you allowing your love for him to never die. (1 Cor 13:8)- Gladys"
March 20, 2019 "Birch was a great friend, we worked briefly when he was at Venable. I first met Birch when he was nominated for the U. S. Senate at the Democratic Convention in Indianapolis, June, 1962. I was on the staff of Vance Hartke. Birch will be remembered & revered as one of the most outstanding legislators in the history of the United States Senate. A truly great American." - Wayne Collins (Bethesda, MD)
March 20, 2019 "Dear Evan and family,

He made Indiana proud to have him represent us.
Thinking of you and sending my deepest sympathy to you and the family.
Audrey" - Audrey Larman (Carmel,, IN)
