I was very sad to get this news. I knew Biggs from conventions where we'd both been speakers. We weren't close or anything, but we'd sit together on the same dais, and share a nodding recognition. His death surprises me -- he was in great shape, very together, seemingly very centered and focused. He looked like the kind of guy who would look exactly the same 50 years from now. His death at such a young age shocks and saddens me. :/
