    I had the pleasure to meet Mr Brandveen in August of 1986 as a new corrections officer At FCI Petersburg. I knew, from day one, that I could learn so much from his wisdom and knowledge. He gave you the impression that he knew everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. There was never a conversation with Brandveen that you were going to win, he always had the last word, but in a good way. On the other side of that, was a man who was dedicated to his daughters, considered his parents to be his heroes and thought the world of his brothers. He loved his co-workers and believed in giving respect to all. I will always remember the conversations we had, and that laugh and smile . Heaven has received an angel.

    I wish to offer my heartfelt condolences to the Brandveen family in their family's loss. He will be missed by many. Brand was one of a few who talked more than I do. You all have been in my prayers, especially at this trying time. May you all find lasting peace in the reality that Robert is no longer sick, in and out of hospitals, endless medications and misery. Rest on my Brother rest on.
