I've known Biggie since 2003 or so. I saw her a couple weeks ago. She held a blanket the community donated to a lady and made sure she got it.

Biggie was the kind of person who'd share a smoke even if it were her last. Give you whatever she could, whether she had it or not. I remember I was out of smokes and she literally gave me the last one, saying she's figure it out.

Biggies love for her family, her dogs and her community is unrivalled.

May she rest in power, with her friends and family that passed on before. May she have the best food, endless lantern light and friends to share the good with up in Heaven.

I love you Biggie. You were very incredibly special to me, and this community.
