I am so sad to hear what happened. I used to talk with Alan on almost a daily basis when I worked for Huff Lumber Company. He was a very nice man as was the rest of his family and employees. My heart goes out to Charlie, Mary and the rest of the Bohnhoff family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I just can't believe this has happened to such kind and loving people. Jamie was a friend of mine, he always hopped on the forklift and got my lumber ahead of other orders. I talked to Charles this morning, he said his only son died right in his arms. This is such terrible news, my stomach is in knots. My heart goes out to all you guys down there and the families. My deepest sympathies.

My condolences go out to the family of Jaime Sanchez and to the the family of the other victim. This young man is survived by his Father, his mother, his two sisters, and a wife. His family will miss him. This is a horrible tragedy and I ask that everyone pray for these two families. Jaime was much more than just an employee at the Bonhoff lumber yard, he was a son, a brother, a husband, and a Marine. His family and friends grieve for him. Keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.

My condolences go out to the families of my good friends Jaime Sanchez and Alan Bohnhoff and also to friends and Employees who used to see them every day, Jaime and Alan was two key pieces on this company and good human quality persons, one on the fork lift on the yard and the other one in the office, this is one of the few companies where you don't see new employees all the times, this company was like a family same people all the times and when I heard about this I couldn't think about who can be the gunner, but sadly Saul Moreno was the bad guy.
I will never forget them; I'm just have to learn to live without them.

Jaime Sanchez was my cousin. I remember him and his sister very well and fondly. Jaime has a father who is my uncle and a great man. Tio Manuel was always there for his kids and loved them very much. Its gonna tear me apart to see him this weekend when he arrives from Mexico due to this tragedy. Please pray for him too. Lets not forget the father who was always there for his children throughout the thick and thin of life....<quoted text>
Your right John, this is your cousin Aracely from your tio Juan, who passed away 19 years ago this year. Its hard to loose a loved one.

Invisible, meaningless, christian illusions. Your prayers mean nothing. The execution of the christian shit-swarm and every other religious scam will result in the realization that life shall continue with or without your ancient laws. Trample the church. Laugh at your tragedies. Mock with disrespect. Solace is achieved not through your man-made "lord", but through desecration, domination and human manipulation.
No matter what your beliefs are please have respect and leave your opinion off this blog.Two people have had their lifes cut shot unnecessarily. So please find another blog to express your opions on and leave the people her to express their loss.

Thin, short hair, and always proudly flying a USMC flag on his lift. Like someone else said, when you walked up to him with what you needed he treated you like you were the only customer on the planet, just a great friendly guy to deal with.

Alan Bohnhoff was my 2nd cousin. His mom Mary and I are 1st cousins. Yes, as everyone has said, Alan was a great guy and a lot of fun to be around. This has been such a shock to the entire family, I don't think we have actually accepted it yet. I still miss Mary very much and it will be very difficult to say goodby to Alan. My condolences to the Jaime Sanchez family also. I know you are hurting as much as we are.

Bohnhoff Lumber was one of my favorite customers when I was in the lumber industry. Alan was the nicest, most sincere person I have ever dealt with and enjoyed everyone there. When I left to go to another industry, Bohnhoff was one of the customers that I was regretting not having contact with anymore. I hope Mike and Charlie and all know how many people are saddened by this event and will always remember Alan and Jaime. I am so sorry for your families

I know the Bohnhoff family personally. I would guess Alan had over 600 people at his funeral, it was a beautiful service. As far as the company surviving, of course it will. They will celebrate 100 years in 2010. Something Alan was so looking forward to. Saul Moreno crushed the hearts of three families and many extended families. But, everyone will survive, because they have to, and will move forward, because that is what Alan and Jaime would want most....

I am Mrs. Alan Bohnhoff and your right Alan was a very kind , good, generous man. I will miss him deeply as will his father, and childern. This was a senseless crime. Alan was taken before his time and I /we will never be the same.
