Our family was sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was really an interesting and wonderful person. I enjoyed visiting with him at your retirement party. His stories of the orange juice on Hwy. 5 and livestock brought back memories of growing up in the fifties and other family members. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and your family. Mike Petefish, May 4, 2008 Donna, we just met you at the Golden Corral in McKinney with Ms. Denison. When you told us about your Dad, I felt for you. Time heals all wounds. June Gibson, April 20, 2008 Dear Donna, Thanks for calling me about your father's death. You and Jack have been in my thoughts and prayers. I know Jesus and the angels were happy to welcome him home.

Kelly & Sharon Shobe, April 18, 2008 I really enjoyed dancing with your dad on Thursday nights. He was such a quite but sweet man. He had such a kind smile. I am sure you will be lost and sad with out him, but just remember you will see him again with a healthy body and a sound mind. Jean White Jean White, April 18, 2008 I met Ted through Donna. He was a very kind man and had a great smile and wonderful personality. May you rest in peace, Ted. You'll be missed. Julie Lovelady, April 7, 2008 I had seen Mr. Biggs on a few occasions at Plano Super Bowl while his daughter, Donna, bowled in the league we both were in. Freddie must have been a super individual given that the personality and character of the siblings are usually shaped and influenced by the parents. I suspect, based on observations, that Donna and Freddie had a loving and respectful relationship where Donna worshipped her Father and Freddie always considered Donna his little girl. I wonder if Freddie passed his coon hunting prowess on to Donna. May God Bless all the Biggs' family. Mark Alan Phelps, April 4, 2008 For Donna: During my yearly visits to Texas, I spent some time with your Daddy. I remember his wonderful sense of humor - and you could always make him laugh. I'll never forget how kind he was to Lauren. Take comfort in knowing you'll see him again. Mel Melanie Anne Ledgerwood, April 4, 2008 I only knew Ted through Donna at the bowling alley.
