Brandi Ann Thompson

July 19 1985 ~ February 21, 2007

My beautiful daughter was 21 yrs old.

She was full of life with so many dreams yet to make come true. 

She was a student of cosmetology, worked at the Snow Basin Resort and the American Legion in Huntsville Utah. She became ill with classic flu like symptoms and passed away in her sleep, on Feb 21,2007 of meningococcal meningitis. less than 24 hours, after her symptoms began. 

She was sure she had the flu and knew it would pass and she would feel good as new the following day. She was taken without warning. 

  My life has been turned upside down.  She was my only child and I am single parent. My heart goes out to the many families that have been stricken with a tragic loss of there loved one.

Brandi, this poem says it all. 
phenomenal woman
pretty woman wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
but when I start to tell them,
they think I'm telling lies.
I say,
it's in the reach of my arms
the span of my hips,
the stride of my step,
the curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
phenomenal woman,
that's me.
I walk into a room
just as cool as you please,
and to a man,
the fellows stand or
fall down on their knees.
then they swarm around me,
a hive of honey bees.
I say,
it's the fire in my eyes,
and the flash of my teeth,
the swing in my waist,
and the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
phenomenal woman,
that's me.
men themselves have wondered
what they see in me.
they try so much
but they can't touch
my inner mystery.
when I try to show them
they say they still can't see.
I say,
it's in the arch of my back,
the sun of my smile,

the ride of my breasts,
the grace of my style.
I'm a woman
phenomenal woman
that's me.
now you understand
just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
or have to talk real loud.
when you see me passing
it ought to make you proud.
I say
it's in the click of my heels,
the bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
the need of my care,
"cause I'm a woman
phenomenal woman,

that's me.
we love and miss you,
Anjulie & Joy Wheatley


Days keep coming and going, you being gone isn't getting any easier. It's almost Memorial Day and I can't help but think that last year at this time we were going to Lake Powell for the weekend. I never would have thought that a year later, we would be coming to visit your grave on Memorial Day. I hope you know that I think of you everyday and how much I miss you. There's so much that I wish we could talk about. You were always there for me when I needed a friend, someone to listen, to offer a hug and to try to make me feel better. I could really use one of your hugs right now!! Things have been really hard since you have been gone, there's an empty place in my heart and so many days are filled with sadness. But remembering you and all the good times we had help me through my days. There's not a day that passes that I don't wish you would come walking through the door with that bright, beautiful smile. I miss you Brandi... You are forever in my heart, forever my friend. I love you, Ashley

Brandi, We all struggle to exist in a world without you but our hearts are filled with love and lots of wonderful memories of great times together.  Thinking of You – Always – Thinking of You!

My beautiful angel, It has been two months since you went away.  Every time the phone rings, i wish it were you calling to say, "hey mom was' up" or "I love you mom have a good day".  when a little black mustang speeds by me I watch for your big beautiful smile and that crazy wave of yours.  and so often when someone is at the front door, I hold my breath in hopes it'll be you.  I just miss you so, so much!  I pray you are having the time of your life running through the daisy's laughing and playing!  till' we are together once again always remember i love you so much and not a minute goes by that you are not in my thoughts.  my unconditional love always & forever, Mom  

There is not a minute that goes by that I don’t wish that you were back with me.  Yesterday was one month since you left and I cried all day.  I went up to your grave yesterday and could not stop asking myself why God chose you to go back home………. It makes it easier for me knowing that God obviously chooses the best ones. He could not have taken a better person than you.

I never would have imagined that I would be standing over my best friend’s grave.  We were supposed to grow old together Brandi, but I know that you will always watch over me, and just because I can’t see you, does not mean that you are not with me. 

I am so thankful that you came into my life, and even though I am dying inside, I would not change our friendship for anything!  We have so many fun memories together and they will stay with me until we see each other again.  I love you Brandi, and I miss you more than words can express.

I love you always and forever, Kylee

I meet you about 5 years ago and you befriended my daughter when life was just starting to get hard for her.  you two were like sisters for a while and I don't know if I ever thanked you for taking such good care of Randi.  Even when you couldn't be around her anymore you still went out of your way to try and help her.  I will be forever grateful for that you  are such a sweet and beautiful young girl.  every time you came up to the house you made me smile when I was having a real hard time.  I love and miss you very much.  there is someone else that loves and misses you very much.  he has a real hard time showing his feelings but not about you.  he loved you so much,  he always said you were his Baby Girl.  you know I'm talking about Kenny,  no matter how hard he was sometimes when it came to you you did no wrong.  he would just light up when your name was brought up.  we will both miss you very much.  I do know we will see you again. I cant wait to see that smile of yours.
Julie and Kenny


Brandi your grandpa Steve was your first Daddy-daughter date, he still remembers that evening.  What a delight you have been to us, your grandparents.  We have always been so proud of you.  You were an angel sent from God, I guess he had a job for you to do.  Run thru the wild daisies with the children and make then laugh and smile like you did us.  Give your grandmothers and our mothers and fathers a big hug and kiss.  They are probably in awe at what a beautiful child you are.  What pride they have in you.  
We will never forget you,  we visit you everyday.  Forever in our hearts.  Grandma Janet & Grandpa Steve 

My heart was shattered the day you where taken from my life.  We had so many adventures we were going to take.  Our silly dream of driving for NASCAR racing team, cruising on our Harley's with the wind in our hair  & the sun on our face's. I am so lost & empty without my best friend! I know you are having the time of your life and free from the cruelty the world is filled with. I hope you are getting that place next to you ready for the day we will be together again. you are in my heart forever and always. Not a minute passes that I'm not thinking about you. you put the beat in my heart, the light in my eyes & the smile on my face. there are no words that could express how very much I miss you! Your Loving Modre'  

To the love of my life, you mean more to me than life itself. I know you are in a better place but now my life will never be the same. I will cherish the time we shared together for that was the best time of my life. I pray one day we will be together again, I love you.   Brady


 It still doesn't seem real that you won't be coming back, I will never hear your laugh again, never see that beautiful smile. Words can't explain how much I miss you everyday. A part of our family is missing forever now that you are gone, you brought so much happiness into our lives. I thank God everyday for the opportunity to be able to know you, to love you, to share so many memories with you. We had some good times didn't we? I wish we could do it all again. I am so thankful that you and Brady found each other, we fell in love with you the first day he brought you home with him. Since that day, you have been such a big part of our family, you always will be. I hope you know how much I love you and how much I miss you. You were like a little sister to me, someone I could always lean on and confide in, a true friend. I will forever cherish the times that we had together and the memories that I carry with me everyday. My life will never be the same without you, I will always have a special place in my heart for you. I hope Dax and Herc are keeping you company, give them a big hug for us! Thank you for all that you brought to me and my family's lives. I wish I could bring you back...even for just one more day... but I know what it would do, "it would leave me wishing still for one more day with you". You truly are an angel, the most beautiful of all. Your smile will continue to brighten our days. I love you forever Brandi! You are forever my little angel. This isn't a goodbye but until we meet again... Love always, Ashley  

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane,

I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye.

You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness and so many tears still flow.

What it meant to lose you, no on will ever know.

But know we know you want us to mourn for you no more,

to remember all the happy times; life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten, we pledge to you today, 

a hallowed place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay.

Brandi, not a day goes by that I don't think of you and all the good times we had. I still have a hard time thinking that I'll never get to see you again or talk to you. I don't understand why you had to go, you were so young and still had so much to live for. It angers me that you were taken so soon, I just don't understand "WHY YOU". There was so much that was left unsaid and I wish I could have talked to you about some things, I've heard that things were rough before you left us and I just want you to know that I LOVE YOU and I am so glad you were such a big part of my life. I'm glad you came to live with me for that little while, I loved having you around. I wish Gahndyn would have been able to know you longer, you were so good with him and other kids. You are such a great person and I've always admired you for your beauty. Whenever I'm having a bad hair day I always think of you and wish I could call you up to come help a cousin out. Just know that you are always in my thoughts and I Love you sooooooo much. You were like a sister to me. Cousins by chance, Friends by choice.

It seems only a few years ago that your Mom and her curly headed sidekick would pass by us in that red pickup truck, you grinning and waving. As the years flew by that cute little kid turned into a beautiful and wonderful young woman. Your Mom also so proud.  As the old saying goes " You did your family proud". You will be missed so very much.  We love you,  Bill and Donna Spinks

Whenever I think of you,
I feel a smile
deep down inside my heart.
It happens when I remember your
adorable baby grins and your funny
little waddle when you were learning
to walk.
It happens when I think about the
wonderful woman you became right
before my eyes and again when remembering
the thoughtful, kind and caring thing you always
did for me and many others--
All through your life you gave me so many
reasons to smile...
Always remember that I have been nothing but
very proud of you...
My Beautiful Daughter.


I love you and I miss you more than you will ever know!  I will never forget all the great memories, two days before you died we joked that we would never forget each other no matter what happened.  I will always stay true to my promise, I look forward to the day we will meet again.  I love you Brandi Ann. 


Love always and unconditionally

Kylee Marie


It has been almost a year since you went away. My heart feels the pain as if it were yesterday.  I struggle to make it from day to day this emptiness is here to stay. I miss you so very much! I slip away into my own little world and I see us talking, laughing, joking and hanging out. I miss all those Mom & Daughter dates when we would go to the movies and out to dinner, or to a concerts and from time to time go have lunch you with your Jack & Coke me with my Crown & Coke. I miss my beautiful daughter, my very best friend! 
                 Mothers and Daughters never truly part
                 bound by the love in each others heart..
Forever you will be in my heart. I will always, forever & unconditionally love you!  MOM

Brandi, my precious daughter, It has been 11 months since you were taken from me.  I struggle to exists in this world without you.  I think about you everyday, all day long.  every morning and every night sometimes several times in between I talk to you, I hope you can hear me!  i love you so much!  sometimes I like I'm going insane.  you are and will always be my life and  my whole world.  never forget how very very much i love you.  "A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER NEVER TRULY PART, THEY ARE BOUND BY THE LOVE IN EACH OTHERS HEART!" Unconditionally Mom


We cherish our precious memories of days when you were here.
Remembering you is easy, we do it everyday but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.

It’s been a long year with out you here but not one of those days did you ever leave our hearts or our thoughts.

That smile of yours is etched in our minds and when we have the really hard days; it’s your smile and all the wonderful memories that carry us thru the days.

What I wouldn’t give to here you come thru the door and here your voice ask me how my day was, or just to sit with you and share a vanilla coke and listen to your stories you use to share with us.

We miss you so much!  GB
