Samantha, you are certainly going to be missed :( It was such a pleasure to work with you and get you started on your Bachelors degree. I'm glad that we connected in the way that we did. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I was just thinking of some of the conversations and interactions while you were in the office and I felt so heavy :( I wasn't expecting this.
To the Bachand family: Be encouraged and may the Good Lord, who knows our beginning and our end, give you strength.

Every opportunity I had to work with Sam at Animare was a pleasure. I looked forward to every shift when Sam was working! Having such knowledge and experience with life she taught and shared with me so many things. Her experiences made her such a beautiful person on the inside and out. To the Bachand family and extended family if Sam was any bit of a product of her environment, you all did very well. Our Beautiful Angel will be missed.

To the Bachand and Mitchell Family..I did not know Samantha but I know what a terrible tragedy this is. Loosing a grandchild and a Niece is a very difficult thing to deal with. The Lord will be with you during this time of trial. Just trust that he will help you get through it.
I am here is you need anything at all from us.

Words cannot describe what a loving and great person Sam was! I miss her so much, we worked together at Animare and I still remember our talks we had at the end of our shifts :) You always had a smile on your face and positive attitude. Rest in peace, you will always and forever be in my heart and thoughts! Love you girl!

May you find strength from each other and thoses who have had the privilege to get

Samantha was one of my daughter's roommates at DLI in Monterey, CA. She had such a magnetic, upbeat personality. One time, when I was visiting my daughter, Caitlin, she and Samantha said they wanted to take me to the ocean so I could watch them surf. So, we went to the beach, the girls donned wetsuits and I was preparing myself to be impressed-until I saw the plastic double-wide air mattress. Apparently, the girls determined that "surfing" was defined by

I was lucky enough to see Sammy almost every day for 2 years while we were in California and Texas together. Sammy had a HUGE personality that could fill up a room. I'll never forget how happy of a person she was and how she would spread it to others. I rarely see a smile quite as contagious as hers. It was impossible to be in a bad mood when she was around. She cared so much for people close to her and was a perfect example of unconditional love.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Samantha when we both worked at Animare. One thing is for sure, that job made us close *She knows what I'm talking about ;)* Samantha was one those good people that you can have a deep, meaningful conversation with and that is why I call her my friend. Never seen her sad or angry. If she was, she could've fooled me because her face always so radiant and voice so calm. I will cherish

Sam had a smile that lit up the the whole room. You alway knew it was real. Going to miss her.

Samantha was one of my roommates at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, Ca. She was vivacious, loving and an amazing friend. She will always be apart of some of my fondest memories from that time in my life. I will always miss her. Thank you for having been my friend and making my life a little brighter, Sam.
