REMEMBERING RICHARD BIGGS

Rick, Stephen, me Had I known this was going to be the last time I would see Rick, I would have stayed a little longer, been around a lot more and shared a little more time with him and the other Babylon 5 cast at DragonCon in Atlanta. Stephen Austin (Pak'ma'Ra Ambassador) is here with me and Rick in this photo.



VorCon Guest Here is a picture of Rick on stage at the VorCon convention in Los Angeles in 1998.



2BeContinued Guests Here is a picture of Rick, Jason and Jeffrey at a recent convention. I think Rick would enjoy seeing this picture, since he enjoyed the company of fans very much and this is how many of us will remember him -- full of life.




Jason, Connie, Rick Ranger Connie with Jason and Rick at a local convention.






Rick, Connie, Joe Ranger Connie forwarded this picture of Richard and her friend Joe Ronca at a Convention near the Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.








Rick at Dragon Con Here is a picture of Richard Biggs and myself (Jack Bennett of www.issbabylon.com) at Dragon Con 2001 in Atlanta.




Rick and Kelly I'm deeply saddened by the loss of Rick. He was a wonderful person and I will miss him greatly as will everyone else.

I've attached one of many photos I have had taken of myself with him over the years. I thought you might like to include it on ISNNEWS.NET. This one's from October 2002.




Here is a poem I received via a chain letter. I hate them -- but this poem struck a chord. I wish I knew who wrote it so that I can attribute it to them. As I sit and think about Rick as they lay him to rest today, it seems even more appropriate.

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.
