I only knew David at UES.... but I knew that he was such a great guy. While we split apart because of going to different schools  in WWP... I can only see the David brought nothing but good to his family, to his friends, and to the love of his life Carolyn. I know that you are still with everyone of us David... and you will always be in our hearts. <3

Dave was one of those rare people whose mere presence made you smile.  While he is sorely missed, memories of Dave, especially during baseball season, make me smile even today.

05-19-2010 6:34 PM -- By: Maria Leibowitz,  From: Mitch played American legion with David  

We remember David's uniform was always impeccably clean....we also remember how he always had a great smile on his face along with some awesome pitches that year (2008) at American Legion when he was one of the youngest pitchers on the team. I also remember sitting near his parents and how much they supported him.

We wish the best to his family and friends.

We are so fortunate to have been a part of such a special life.  I know it mean't a lot to Ryan that David took him under his wing and mentored him last season.  David will be missed, but never forgotten.  Always in our thoughts and prayers.

David's memory lives on.  Beautiful tribute.

05-04-2010 1:45 PM -- By: Louise Williams,  From: Fairfax, VA  

A beautiful tribute for such fine young man.  David played baseball with my son on the Mid-Atlantics Rookies.  They became fast friends and I was always so impressed with David's smile.  He had great talent, but he didn't take it all so seriously that he missed what was around him.  Our family is grateful for having known David. May he rest in peace and continue to smile for all of us.

Rhonda, David was so handsome and so "busy" (a term I used for my son Whitney). What a beautiful tribute to him, and the many memories you have will bring you comfort in your sad and dark days. Trust that I know how you are missing him because we never wanted memories, we only wanted our children......

I am so very sorry for your loss.

I never met you, but after viewing this wonderful website in your memory I feel like I got to know you and your mom did an excellent job. You are an outstanding young man, son, brother and friend and the world is that much more empty of a shell without you in it. Look over your mom, dad, brothers, sisters and friends who love  you so much and constantly have you in their thoughts.

 To David's Family,

My deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of you. Unfortunately you now belong to a club that none of us want to be in. I lost my son at age 20 almost two years ago. Not a second goes by that he is not on my mind. I am sure it is the same with you and David. This is the greatest pain any parent can experience. Labor was a cake walk compared to this! Know that you are not alone in your grief. There are many parents out here feeling the loss you now are experiencing.

May Peace be with you now and always

We know that time never erases the memory and loss of losing someone so dear to our hearts.  Our hearts truly go out to you and I know that each day is hard, but I also know that God is more powerful than our hearts.  PLEASE pray to Him for strength and direction to make it through each day. What a wonderful photo!  A picture is worth a thousand words, and these pictures of  David say a thousand times that he was  happy, full of life and full of love.  Please mediate on those beautiful memories to help you.

To the Family of David Bachner ~ My heart truly aches for you and your family.  Being a mother, I can't begin to even remotely imagine what you have gone through and how hard this past year has been on you and your family.  Losing someone we love is never easy, but to lose someone so tender in age and innocent can some days feel unbearable. But do know that there are people who care, and there are people who are praying for you, and there are people who want you to endure and make it through.  Just remember....one moment at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time. Don't rush yourself or feel you have to feel a certain way by a certain time.  Yes, you will have days when you miss David dearly.  And it is OK to feel that way. I know that the prayers of your family and friends will continue for you.  James chapter 5 verse 16 says that "...A righteous man’s supplication, when it is at work, has much force...."  So prayers are being said on your behalf.  And the power of prayer to provide us with comfort is so powerful.

When the time and situation allows you, please look up these scriptures to provide you with some comfort of the hope that you will be able to see your wonderful David again. - John 5:21, 28 & 29, Revelation 21:4, Job 14: 14-15

Dear Rhonda,

I wanted you to know that your family and your beautiful David are in our thoughts and prayers.  It's been such a very short time since your life has changed, Rhonda, and you've already honored David in so many ways and I know he is so very proud of you for everything you are doing.  I read some of the articles on David and you have an amazing son and truly a blessing to so many people's lives.  He made the world better even in his too short years and will continue to do so by your sharing him with us.  Thank you.  Peace and Love

honoring your loss

04-16-2010 8:08 PM -- By: Alan Carnahan,  From: Indianapolis, IN  

Bachner family,

So sorry for your loss of your son, David. What a handsome young man and great athlete. I know that you are still adding to his memorial site that you are making for him; but, I know that some have asked this question.....how did this strong, loving child die? There are so many parents here that have made memorial sites for their children. I am included in this family.

I lost my 18 year old son in May of 2007. He was 3 months from turning 19. David was 5 months from turning 19. My son was a healthy young man and was 2 weeks from graduating high school when he contracted an awful disease that took his life within days of him contracting it. So sudden. We have started a scholarship this year that is similar to David's that you have in his memory. Our son wanted to go into Automotive Technology and Design. His scholarship is for this degree. To view his memorial site that I have made for him; just click on his picture that I leave here.

Again; I'm sorry to see David's memorial site added here. So many young adults losing their lives. This is just one of many memorial sites and there are so many listed here. To think that there are also many parents that have lost their children and haven't made memorials to them......we have to ask ourselves the question....why? We will never know.

From one parent to another that has lost their precious son;

With only memories left of them.......

What a nice tribute..... beautiful!

04-16-2010 5:48 PM -- By: Karen Smith,  From: Canberra, Australia  

Thank you so much for sharing David's life with us, Rhonda. What a beautiful, strong, talented man. How could this happen to him? How could he be snatched away from Carolyn, his friends, and family? I don't understand....The world is not the same without David Bachner in it. My prayers are with you and your family. Much love, Karen xxxxx

You did a FANTASTIC job on the memorial!  I LOVE it!  The pictures are amazing and the songs are perfect!  Ryan's favourite is the one playing on "David and Friends" page! =]

You're becoming quite the tech savvy mom!
Great job, girl!  LOVE you!
