The sadness that you feel is because you had so many good times, and you will miss Andy -- all of you. Especially Bette -- 70+ years of memories! So glad Kim got him involved in that LangHundHaus -- his last architectural work :-).
I will always treasure the memories of the Bach Reunion in Huntsville -- you were great!
Much love and our prayers,
Bill and Shirley

So sad to say farewell to a dear, dear friend. Andy was a special part of our life for over 50 years and loved by all of our family, as well I think by all who were lucky enough to know him. Some of the happiest times of our lives were when we were spending time with Bette and Andy.

Love from the Smiths, Joan, Homer, Todd, Drew and Jill.

To the Anderson Family:
May you find peace in knowing that you had Andy for a long long time. It doesn't make it any easier when a love one dies, no patter how old.
You all will be in our prayers as always.
Terri's cousin Diana & Ken Spegon, Homewood, ILL.

It was so great to have Andy and Bette visit in Alaska back in the '90s. And I am so glad that I attended the Bach Reunion in Huntsville in 2011 and got to see Andy again and in good health. What a blessed life to have such a wonderful career, a great wife and wonderful children and more. My condolences to all of the family, especially Bette, and may God give you comfort. Love, Cousin Suzie

Bob and I are so sorry to hear about uncle Andy. He was such fun to be with on our visits to your home.
Our sympathies also to Craig, Vern, Kim and all the many other loved ones he leaves behind. Aunt Betty, we love you!!! Bob and Nan Bach

I take this occasion to extent my sympathies on the death of your husband, father, and grandfather Andy. He had a good long life and was healthy for most of them. What more can we wish or hope for our aging relatives? On the other hand, this fact doesn't dull the grieving and sense of loss at his parting.
Ten years younger than Andy, I could not recall a time when he wasn't a large part of our family. I was fond of pointing out to my fellow students the various buildings on the U of IL campus that my cousin in law helped to design. Andy was quickly and easily assimilated into the Bach clan when he married Bette, and I can't remember when he didn't have some part in the Bach reunions over the years. I rarely saw Andy and Bette outside these reunions -- Kim's wedding was one of the few exceptions -- but each time we saw each other we would pick up where we left the last time we were together. Andy was justly proud of his wife, his children and grandchildren. I was so happy to see both him and Bette at the Huntsville family reunion in 2010 and happier still to have the "memory DVD" that Craig and Kim produced after that event. I hope there are martinis in Heaven; Paradise wouldn't seem the same to Andy without them.
