Reflections for Sergeant William King Biggs, Jr.

Still, 2yrs later, not a day goes by that I don't think of you, Bill. My heart may be scarred from your death but my life will always be touched with your presence. That's the way it will always be. I miss you my friend.

Please know you and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers on this unfortunate anniversary. I think of you often and find comfort that you are all together. Keep a special watch over your family. You are never forgotten.

Just thought I would stop by. I know the next anniversary is coming up and how sad it still is. I also wanted to tell you I enjoyed spending the COPS Sibling weekend with Alyson, Catherine and Jimmy B. We shared some laughs and we shared some tears. It felt good to talk about our Bill's. I am thinking about all of you and please know you are in my prayers.

Well Bill, you and Tom have been gone now for almost two years. There is still a void where you two were that has not been filled and the hurt and pain is still there for a lot of us, even though we may not show it. Just wanted to stop by and let you know that you are never far from my thoughts. Your perpetual smile and laughter will always be missed. You brought calm and a sense of order that no one else could. Rest easy Bill ...

Well i did it, i am where i want to be. I am sure that you know this already. We finaly became full time floridians. I know that i should have left missouri on better terms with everyone but you saw what was going on. The good news is that i am happy now. Our reasturant is now open and the people love what i am serving them. I am putting all my heart and soul in this, not that i wasnt before. I think that you would be really proud of what I have accomplished here in such short time. I know that there are issues up north that need taken care of but that will work out in time. I have met a really cool police officer down here, his name is officer jose raplee, he reminds me a lot of you and we have really hit it off, he remembered hearing about the whole thing and even took my menu and posted it at the police station with your story. I hope that you will continue to watch over me and karen, I really need your support right now. Bo does too, following in your footsteps and becoming a officer like you. I know he will do his job as well as you have. I want you to watch over him, i cant stand the thought of losing him too. I miss you and love you so much. I hope that you can help me with this family situation, sorry i havent written in a long time, i wont let that happen again.

love ya dad

As I remember the loss of U-City's Sgt. King this weekend, I'm also thinking of your family & Officer Ballman's and the losses they suffered in 2008. These tragedies shook our community so hard last year, and I can only imagine how it shook your family and friends.

I think about you all frequently. No matter how much time passes, I hope you always know that the police community will never forget your service or your loved ones.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Sergeant Biggs and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever.

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Biggs, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Sergeant Biggs is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

It was their duty to serve; it is ours to remember.

Sgt. Biggs
I was honored to have meet both your sons at the NPW 2009 and learned about your heroism. Your son, Cody gave me a pin with your badge number and every time I see it I think of your family. May God continue to give them strength to move forward and remember the honorable person you are. Your blue family and other surviving families will never forget the courage you faced daily. With that said thank you for your efforts to keep this nation safer.

SGT Biggs,

I had the honor of escorting your family and friends around DC one night during Police Week and they were a great bunch of people. We only got lost once or twice, but they were a kind and caring group of people. I know God will comfort them during this difficult time. You are not forgotten sir! Rest in Peace...

To the Entire Biggs Family,
I will be thinking of all of you and Bill this week as you travel to DC for this special honor for Bill. Although it is very unfortunate, it is an incredible and well deserved tribute. Bill will truly never, ever be forgotten.-Jayne McEntee, sister of Bill, EOW 7/5/05

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

To Sgt. William Biggs and his loved ones:

On this the first anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

My heart is with your family members who call you beloved. They are all in my thoughts and prayers today.

William, you rescued us, saved our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Sgt. Biggs. I am so humbled by your valor and courage.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service William gave to his community and the citizens of Missouri, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 7, 2008.

Well Bill, how's it going? You know how it is here. You know there are so many that miss you around the station. Everytime we hear someone imitating Forest Gump, you are thought of. I can't find the right words to say to you. I know you know how I/we all feel inside. There is no one there to set everyone right. I don't think anyone will every replace the officer, you know, the one that always wears his uniform hat. Well, that could only be one officer. There is one that likes his hat about as much as you did, but it just isn't the same.

I know I am just rambling on, but sometimes that what a person has to do.

Well Forest, I'll talk to you later.

Bill - The first year anniversary is here. I will never forget the horror and sadness I felt when this happened. You have such a loving and strong family, I know you would be proud of them. Cindi has shown tremendous strength. I know, as I have said before, there are three tough angels up there watching over all of us. Continue to watch over your family, friends and coworkers from the Kirkwood PD. You will never be forgetten.

It was nearly a year ago and yet I can remember everything so vividly. Much of it I wish I could forget. But what I do recall is us laughing and joking with eachother minutes before your life was taken. I think of your smile as you walked out the door and that is the image I attempt to keep imbedded in my memory. I continue to have my "moments" of sadness, not as often as I used to, but it doesn't make my heart any less heavy. I still miss you Bill. I always will.

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway"

If tears could build a stairway
And memories 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 I knew it
And only God knows why

My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to love you
No one can ever know

But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hollowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

To the Entire Biggs Family - You are in my thoughts and prayers. Bill will never be forgotten. God Bless All of You.-Jayne

It has been one year since I last visited with you. It has meant so much to me that you called that weekend to make sure that I was still coming out to visit you & Cindi. "Make sure to bring the dogs" you told me. Alyson, Neal & Ryan were already there having a blast! You were always looking after me. I will never forget that weekend spent with you. I miss you very much but I know you are always with me and our family. For that, we are truly blessed.
Take care,
Your Brother Jim
