Biggers as we affectionately called her was our adopted grandmother. Never short on hugs, always smiling no matter what. She was such a force within our family and we loved her and will miss her dearly. We know without a doubt she was welcomed into heaven with open arms. She taught me so many things that I will never forget and was such an impact on my life. I stayed with her the night before I got married and I remember her praying with me for a blessed marriage that night. We will always love you and miss you!!

Mrs. Biggers was a very special lady and I feel very blessed to have known her. She left a wonderful legacy not only though her family but also through all those with whom she shared God's love. She will be truly missed but I feel certain that when she met her Heavenly Father he said " well done my good and faithful servant".
