"My fond memories of The Red Cottage and going there for lunch or standing out on the corner as a Safety Patrol, Mr. Biggs was always someone I looked up to. He made that corner a safe place to be as a child. As I got to know him as Rocco the past few years, I could see how much his daughters admired him and how much they cared for him. He raised his daughters well and he will be missed."
