'Rest-in-Peace,' Sgt. Biggs, I was in the Hospital waiting room with My 'EMS Med-Flight' Flight Paramedic Al Thompson, along with Your Wife, Trooper Warren Kegley, and other Troopers from Your Area, when They came to say You had passed away. It was a dark day for the Virginia State Police, it's Members, and I can only imagine how dark it must have been for Your Loving Family! So, 'Rest-in-Peace,' Sir, You've Served the Department, as well as Your Fellow Man, with Pride, Integrity, and Honor, and You Shall not be Forgotten!
