  1. Dear Angie, Chris and Sarah
    What a beautiful service I have just watched for my cousin Greg who I didn’t see enough of. I have lovely childhood and teenage memories of the times we did spend together. He was always loud and laughing which the eulogies suggest he did not stop! Thoughts and love are with Angela and family at this time.

  2. Such a fitting send off to dearest Greg. The speeches captured his personality and his life’s experiences so well. Chris, Joel and Murray spoke from the heart.
    Special love and hugs to the Biggin family and I will hold many happy memories of times spent together

  3. Dear Angela, Sarah, Chris and extended family,
    Surrounding you all with prayerful support as you say goodbye to Greg. So much can be said about him. Certainly larger than life. I remember his loyalty, dedication and service to St. Andrew’s – always with warmth, fun and honesty…
    Thinking about the Fete BBQ’s on front steps (prime spot), parish quiz nights, fun and warm-hearted caricature of fellow parishioners, side person at Mid-night Mass on Christmas Eve – that was a highlight!
    He was an encouraging support for me during my time as verger at St. A’s all those years ago ahead of training for the priesthood.
    Sending love and blessings from New York.

  5. A privilege to join the wonderful service at St. Andrew’s to farewell Greg this morning, especially the family tributes led so well by Chris, covering his interesting life which Greg lived to the fullest with his wide smile, great love of family, warm hospitality, friendship, generosity and planning.
    We recall the happy times shared together at St. Andrew’s over many years.

  8. Such a special service for the most loyal and loving man. I am so grateful for having Greg in my life. If only the Austral Hotel walls in Mackay could talk. Greg you will forever be a part of thoughts. Matron and family you should be so proud of the path Greg has paved for the family. He was a special man and loved you all dearly. Until I see you up there mate. Bye for now. Let your soul RIP. Love Anthony

  10. Greg, you were a true “Marvel”, friend and extremely generous. You will always be remembered as being larger than life and we are better for having the fortune of your friendship.
    We were friends socially and in business. If in business I needed real estate advice, I could always count on you, irrespective of the circumstances.
    Greg you have lived and experienced more in seventy one years than others do in over a century.
    Our condolences and love to Angela Chris and Sarah and their families.
    Rest peacefully.

Love Kate, Jade and baby Harry x
