ForeverMissed
In memory of our dearest Brandi
We will remember her forever



Brandi passed away on Friday, March 17, 2017 leaving behind her children Christopher and Rebecca Wyckoff, brother Michael McCauly and parents Colleen and Steve Caldwell.
 


Those we love remain with us 
for love itself lives on, 
and cherished memories never fade 
because a loved one's gone. 
Those we love can never be 
more than a thought apart, 
for as long as there is memory, 
they'll live on in the heart.



There will be a viewing at 6:00 pm on Wed, 3/22 and a Memorial Service at 4:00 pm on Thursday, 3/23.  Both will be at Lake Havasu Mortuary and Crematory located at 2225 Kiowa Blvd. North, Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403

In Lieu of Flowers, you can make a donation to one of these charities, which are topics that Brandi felt strongly about: The ASPCA (aspca.org) or The Joyful Heart Foundation (joyfulheartfoundation.org).

Hi Brandi. Its been 5 long years since you left us. I miss you everyday. You are always somewhere in my thoughts. I am not as angry but I still don't understand any of this. I have to know in my heart that you are at peace and in a happy place. Hearing your laughter in my head and seeing your beautiful smile brightens my day when I am feeling down. Hope you are peaceful and happy and keeping everyone hopping. Missing you! I miss your Mom! Its like part of me is missing. We only live an hour and a half away from each other but we are old and it is not as easy for us to see each other. She is always in my heart. Love you girl!!!! Auntie Sue

Hi, my dear Bran. Happy Birthday sweet girl. Missing you so much, I'm sorry it has taken me all day to come here and write this. I don't like coming here because it is painful and horrible for me, but I cannot let your birthday go by without you knowing how much I have always loved you from day one. You would have had your 48th birthday today. Amazing and mind-boggling at the same time. I wish I had a place to go visit you and talk with you, but I don't so I have to depend on the universe to get my message to you. I hope that your Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Vonna gave you one grand Birthday party. See you again someday. Love you beyond it all. Love, Mom

Hi Brandi, Happy Birthday. Still missing you. Still pissed off. You were taken too soon. When I am having a bad day like today, I just go to my memories of you, your crazy great smile and all the laughter. You truly left your mark on my heart. Hope that you are at peace. Missing you girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Love you always. Auntie Sue

We went to build a bear today. Your two girls, just like we all used to do. I hope you were there. But then again I always do. I hope you’ve met all of my friends and you know just how much they love you and wish they could have met you. I hope you hear every story I tell about you, and every time I try hard to remember the stupid jokes you used to tell me. I’m sorry I can’t remember them all. Anyways, I miss you and I hope you’re here. I could use a dumb mom joke right now. I guess all I’m trying to say is.. I love you.

Brandi,

As I think of you today, I am here, missing you, yet knowing that you are here too. The world has changed, but our thoughts of you have not. For through our daily joys and fears, laughter and sadness, happiness and tears - we are together still.

Rest well and send us lots of rainbows and magnificent sunsets - I know that within them you will be. For all of us. Together.

Love, your Dad

Hi Brandi,
Well its been 2 years since you have been gone. I am missing you today. You could always make me smile even when I was mad at you.Remember the giant black trash bags that i threatened you with every time I came to visit if your room wasn't clean? One of the funniest things that happened was when you called me and said
"Can you come over because Mom is installing a screen door and that she was so frustrated she said the "F" word and Mom never says the "F" word. I came over and we got the door installed. I don't know why I remember that so clearly. But it always makes me smile when I think of it. Your Mom and I can't even talk on this day. I just send her love and hugs via text. I love her so much and can't imagine my life without both of you in it. I love you Brandi. I know you are smiling. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Auntie Sue

Bran, it's been one year since you left us, and in that time you came to me in a dream and told me you were okay; that you didn't hurt anymore. I so hope this is true, and that you have found the peace. I love you my dear daughter and there hasn't been a single day that I have not thought about you. You will be in my head and my heart every single day, for the rest of my days.

Thinking of you today and every day. Not a moment passes that I don't wish you were here. I find solace in your peace, knowing you are with your god and everyone who has been loved and lost. I am doing good with my life and I hope your are proud. I will always have my pictures and memories, but I will forever long to feel your hand in mine. I love you, mama.

It's been one month to the day. It wasn't supposed to be this way, I should have been the one to leave first. You still had a lot of life left in you. You always had a lot of life and it was so beautiful. I don't think that you ever realized how much of a difference you made in people and their own lives. LYBT. Mom

I am so sorry for your loss, she seemed like a lovely woman. I have a brother and sister on one of these websites Earl and Patricia Grubb they meant the world to me and I understand the true feeling of loss. I pray you find peace and comfort some way. I find it in this website. Again I'm sorry for your loss and my prayers arewith the family

My Dear Brandi,
I never met you but I heard such wonderful things about you from Michael and Sheldon that I felt I knew you.
Rest in Peace Lovely Lady. You were loved very much.

Girl, I can't believe you're gone!
We just had a fb conversation the day before. I was at a loss as to what I would write, then today in my fb memories you popped up in them, twice and I knew. I will miss our conversation via fb and messenger. I always looked forward to our banter and the twisted way we saw things, sharing recipes and asking my thoughts on stuff. We had so many things in common. The others being your Bro, 'Rents and of course our animals. You made me see things in a different light and usually could get a good laugh out of me. How I will miss and cherish that. I will always remember your silly face a couple of years back, when Thanksgiving morning you showed up at my door with cofree after driving the night before from AZ to Big Bear to see Gary. I'm so glad we were able to celebrate Michael and Dusins love, together, It was a glorious day and we were all so full of love and happiness. You are and will always be part of my family.
I will miss your witt and sassiness and twisted take on the world. Until we meet again.
P.S. Make sure you keep God on his toes, he seems kinda boring and wound a little too tight.
Love ya, Kid

Dearest Sweet Brandi....
You are truly one of the brightest, most brilliant, colors of the rainbow. You are loved, and will sorely be missed. Rest peacefully.....

Brandi,
I remember meeting you, at the salon in Temecula at the mall, you did my hair and we laughed for hours, little did I know then we would be friends till one of us passed on. so many wonderful memories with you, for laughs at silly things and just nothings, to marshmallow fights in my apartment and water gun fights right after. Oh boy did we laugh for hours while cleaning it all up with everyone.

I remember meting Becka and Christopher for the first time as well, They just looked at me like I was some crazy person, waiting to see what I would do next, but I won them over a little nail polish for sweet little Becka, and tossing a ball with Christopher.

You were someone I talked to through my moves and my pregnancies and so much more.No matter your mood you took time to make sure I was ok and anyone around you was ok. Hell we ended up in the same state with the so crazy of lives that I only got to see you once but you would always check up on me, my kids, and keeping me posted on any other major events that have happened with our friend your kids and more.

I miss you so much honey. I know your in heaven with no pain, and no worries watching all of us who love you so much, Till we met again you will live in my heart for ever.

Thank you for being one of the best friends I could have ever met.I love you.

"Birth" Day

Shared by Colleen Caldwell on January 26, 2018

You were born at 1:25pm on 1/25. I still remember everything about our day; the beautiful blue sky, the temperature, the hospital, the nurses and the best moment when they handed you to me, you looked up at me with those big blue eyes. Our first formal introduction. And every year on your Birthday, I would call at 1:25 and wish you a Happy Birthday. I will always make that call. So, my dearest Bran, it is 1:25, you have a call on line 1.

Brandi.  Happy birthday in heaven.  I'm thinking about you on this day, a day that should have been so much different...

I know you are with us always even as you are in the arms of the angels, but I miss your presence and bubbly spirit!

Just know that I'm loving you, missing you and celebrating you from this side of heaven.

Dad
