Brian,
I think of you often and I smile at the thought of your friendship. The last time I saw you was at my send off party from CSPD. Four months later you were gone. You made a profound impact on me and so many others with your genuine character and professional ethics. I will never forget you! You were THAT guy! The one that Always had a smile on his face and never a bad word about anyone. God gained an angel. RIP Brother.

Uncle Brian:

I was just thinking of you...I think of you often, but ended up on your page tonight. You are surely missed. I often think that you're looking down on us, keeping us safe from the skies. I wish I had been able to be here in Orlando the last time you and the family were here. I got to see your name on the Memorial wall in DC in August...you are forever a hero. I know I'll see you again..but until that day rest easy. Love and miss you more than you know.

It's been 2 years brother and it doesn't seem a week goes by that I don't think of you either in something or someone I see or sharing a story or two about "the old days". I don't pretend to know I understand God's plan on Earth but I do know I will see you again. Rest easy Brian, you will not be forgotten, only missed.

For the man who gave me my start in law enforcement:

"I Never Got a Chance to Pray"

Lord forgive me for my haste,
I felt I had not a minute to waste
I never got a chance to pray
Before my life was taken away.

So, forgive me Lord
Of all my sins and please
Make my death easy on
My family and friends.

Don't let them hate
Those who did me harm,
I knew the job
Before I took it on.

I pray my flag
Will dry their tears,
The badge I wore
Erase their fears,

The faith you give
To hold them strong
And give them courage
To carry on.

Don't let my death
Be in vain,
I would do my job again
Just the same.

It has been nearly 1 year and 7 months since you were taken. I recieved a token from a passing lady that read "Officer, thank you for protecting us. You are in my thoughts and in my heart 24 hours a day. Please be safe. Rebecca Davis, sister Constable Brian Bachman EOW 8/13/2012."

You're sister is still touching lives and keeping you're memory strong. I cannot thank you enough for the sacrifice you made protecting others. May you're memory continue to flourish and touch the lives of others. Rest peacefully brother, we will take it from here.

It's been a year since you were taken from us brother. I plan on looking everywhere I can today to do good and selfless deeds in your honor, as you would do every day while you were with us. I thank you for what your life has taught me about living mine, and I hope that I can give a small part of the Godliness and good will you gave the world. Love you and miss you.

Hi Brian,

I have had the opportunity to get to know you through your sister, Rebecca and brother-in-law Lawerence. They are spectacular people and miss and love you very much. Rebecca has taken this awful tragedy and is already working so hard in our COPS chapter to soften the road for others. You would be very proud.

You are remembered and missed every day. God speed Brian.

Hi Brian:
It is hard to believe it has almost been a year since you ended your watch. Your incredible “Dash” will live on forever. I always valued the great work you did as a peace officer; however, I have learned so much more about the contributions you made to your community. I will always cherish the time we spent together in Orlando. You are alive in our hearts and minds.

Hi Brian,

I attended the Orange County Memorial last night. It was beautiful but really sad. So many fallen officers and their families. It is very hard to accept.

I miss you so much! One of the Lieutenant's here lets me follow her around. I am learning so much about how you lived your life and I am meeting so many wonderful officers and their families. I wish I lived closer to you so I could have been part of your life. I feel like I missed out.

Mom and Dad and I are going to Austin. And Lawrence and me are going to Nationals. I have already seen your name at the Police Hall of Fame. I can't believe it is you.

I am so proud of you. Your "dash" is a big one that no one can match.

Hug my new friends Heroes.

Constable Bachmann's ultimate sacrifice exemplified his care for his community. There is no greater love than a man lay down his life for a friend. His sister is also a hero; in her grief she is thankful and prays for officers currently serving. Thank you for thinking of us.

Brian....My squad was eating the other day when your sister walked in and handed us a card with a silver metal angel attached by a blue ribbon. The card read "Officer, Thank you for protecting us. You are in my thoughts and in my heart 24 hours a day. My brother's EOW: 8/13/2012. I took him for granted. I can't get him back. Please be safe."
She went to the counter and order her food. We summoned her back and asked her who her brother was. She told us and we thanked her and we then looked you up on ODMP. Please know that you are not forgotten and your sister is keeping your name and memory alive. I have the card in my vehicle near my visor. Please take care of our friend and co-worker, DFC Brandon Coates.
