  1. Love you Godmother. Will miss all the long talks of the time you were growing up with your little brother and other adventurers. Playing dominoes late at night. What a wonderful painter, I have two of her paintings hanging on my walls.

  2. Your open-hearted acceptance of me when I married your nephew Kelly, taking me in immediately as part of your family warmed my heart then and now. You will be greatly missed. Love, Vicki E S Biggs

  3. How I will miss Aunt Annie Pearl! Such a special person, not only in my life, but in the lives of so many others. She was hysterical (mostly on purpose), often spontaneous, welcoming, and joyful. I have many wonderful memories of her and many times together: (1) when I was a pre- or early teen, she would bring clothes to me in grocery bags that Annette and Janet had outgrown. Once, she brought a red velvet jumper dress to my house for me to try on, which had been either Annette’s or Janet’s (possibly both!). When I put it on, she announced, not discretely: “And these darts: these are where her boobies will go!” LOL (and of course I died a thousand pre-teen deaths of mortification) (2) starting some 30 or 40-odd years ago, every time we’d say goodbye, she’d hug me tight and say, “Glad ya got to see me!” (3) When I graduated from high school in 1985, she and Mom took 5 or 6 or however many of my best friends who were all also graduating on a little steamboat in Galveston for the afternoon then we all went to Gaido’s, which I think was her favorite or one of them, and became one of mine, too. Over these decades following that one-day event, she has asked about several of those friends – by name. And she was sharp to the end. (4) I remember family gatherings in her home when she would make her AMAZING pecan pie and Uncle Hi would make his LadyFingers dish. (Can’t remember what that’s called, but he was very particular about it, and it really paid off because it was awesome!) (5) When Maw Maw/Grandma died, I gave the eulogy and it was, apparently, very much from my perspective of experiencing Lillian Biggs in the second half of her life. At lunch afterward, Aunt AP hugged me and said, “Thank you, you did a wonderful job, honey. I just never knew her as Saint Lillian before…” LOL I’m deeply grateful to have known her, to have been known by and loved by her. I’m so, so glad my kids have gotten to know her, too, over their lives. Every time we visited Mom in Houston, I made a point to take her and my kids to visit her and Janet, because she’s just so special to me. When I’d call to ask if they wanted us to pick up anything on the way down, it was, almost invariably, Whataburger Juniors. I’m definitely thankful and “glad I got to see her.”

  4. So sorry to hear of Annie Pearl’s passing. I will always cherish visiting her with Jane. She always made you feel at home and at Christmas, I was amazed that the tree had chocolate decorations hanging from it and even more amazed that Annie Pearl took some down so I could have them. Janet, Annette, Tom and Ken, you were lucky to have such a wonderful mother for so long. I send condolences from Ireland.
