Not sure what to say?

Your family continues to be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you.

I was just reading the Fall Wartburg Magazine and learned of this terrible tragedy for your family. I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you and praying for you as you deal with this loss in your family. I'm so sorry that you have had to go through this. Peace be with you this holiday season. With love,

My heart goes out to this family. It was such an unnecessary waste of a valuable life, thinking of you from down under in Australia


My condolences to all of you who have shared lovingly in Todd Bachman's life. I don't know any of you personally, but can relate to his story as my father also died suddenly and tragically. Your family closeness is also shared by our family. Words cannot express the pain felt after such a great loss. Your family will be in my prayers.

Someone told me to keep my eyes on the stars in the night sky and to think of them as porch lights waiting to welcome your loved one...

I am sorry to be so late with my sympathies. I was in Minnesota on a vacation for three weeks. The tragedy occured on my second day there. I always felt that the Lord moves in mysterious ways. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to be there for my daughter who has been devastated with this loss. Cherie, my daughter, had been a part of the Bachman family for many years. Barbara, she always spoke of your kindness and the loving family. I always felt that her...
