I am so very sad to hear this news. I have so many fond memories of Brandee. We travelled together to Chicago a couple of times to visit friends and just had the absolute best time. She was so fun to talk to (and argue with). She was a true light in the world. I miss you so much Brandee.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Brandee. She will be greatly missed by a lot of folks. I am a retired Range Conservationist in Oklahoma, and worked with Brandee on numerous occasions. I also attended several Range or Grazinglands meetings in Florida and made sure I visited with Brandee every time. As has been said by so many before me, her work ethic and willingness to help in any situation was astounding. I was always so proud of her and her accomplishments.
There are never enough of the right kind of words to express the sympathy and the love we all share, but rest assured that you all are in the thoughts and prayers of many, many people. It breaks my heart that I cannot be at the Oklahoma service, but I will be there in spirit. God Bless you all and Brandee, we will all join you soon.

Like others have said before me, I met Brandee while working together for FL-NRCS. The most fond memories I have of you is your upbeat attitude, smiles, warm hugs, and your faith in Jesus.

I enjoyed our time on earth together and I'll see you soon!

Jeff and Leisa, wow, what an amazing daughter you raised! I learned even more about Brandee at the memorial service. She was definitely a go getter! So many accomplishments, so many lives touched, and such an impression left on many about her love for our Father (my favorite part).

She will be missed by all who knew her. She leaves an empty space where her sweet smile and loving heart once were, but we fill that space with our wonderful memories of how she was a special part of our lives. AND, we look forward to the amazing reunion we will have with her and Yeshua one day! Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!

I love you both. Love and continued prayers for His comfort and strength.
Love, Cindy

Leisa and Jeff,

Brandee and I attended Texas Tech University together and Brandee later provided some career guidance. She was a lovely person - always kind and joyful. I am saddened to hear of her passing and look forward to the day we meet again.

Dear Leisa and Jeff Williams,

I want to Thank Brandee (RIP), and each of you for Brandee’s 17.5 years of service to NRCS, it’s customers and her work with numerous partners.

Within NRCS and the Range Management field, Brandee was a highly respected Range Specialist for NRCS. She did some great work with some of our partners in conservation and was also highly recognized within the Society for Range Management and the Florida Grazing Lands Coalition.

One of the things that we will remember Brandee was for her willingness to help. Sometimes she would focus greatly in helping Field Offices with their workload, before working on her own set of goals, and was always more than willing to lend a hand to those in need whether at the workplace or at a personal level.

For those that worked with me at the Area Office, know that even thou she had some health challenges, I always set the same expectations to Brandee that I did for any other employee. Not once she said no to me and she always came thru.

And I have the utmost respect of Brandee for that. But also, the upmost respect for Leisa and Jeff as I know there was a lot of support from behind the scenes to help Brandee be successful each and every day. I don’t think I can describe or put into words the amount of love and dedication that we witness from you as parents.

Brandee made great contributions to NRCS, its customers, and her impact on our conservation efforts will not soon be forgotten.

Hi, my favorite two memories of Brandee and Leisa are at church when we learned to sign language The Great I Am! What an impact that had on the church. Quiet folks yelled out amen!! I enjoyed that time spent with them. Laughing and praising the Lord!! My next favorite memory is painting the sanctuary!! Just us took on that whole job!! What a honor to beautiful the church together!! I will always hold those memories close to me!! Love you all!

To Leisa & Jeff
We love you both and we are so sorry.
Brandee was a very special young woman and we will miss her so much. She was witty, smart, very determined, very much her own person. She was so courageous through all of the challenges she faced. She was a true inspiration. She was so very passionate about the things she believed in.
Love,
Tony and janet

Brandee was not only a co-worker, but a prayer partner and prayer warrior as well. I will sorely miss our biblical discussions and impromptu praise dance breaks. She was such a blessing. My heart is with the family. I'll see her at the cloud party.

Brandee and I were in the same class in grade school. She was kind to everyone, friendly, funny, smart, and sweet. I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for peace and comfort for your family.
