    Dear Scofield and Monin families, I am so sorry for your loss. Jim always produced and produces a smile on my lips, as a loving and adventurous cousin. I have kept him in prayers these last few weeks, and shall continue to do so. He brought much joy to my Father, and will be sorely missed. Love and hugs, Betty and Joe Fix’s #3, Brian
