[A note from Theresa: cub reporter, filling in for Joe]
Bix just learned that his nephew, Jimmy, died a few days ago. Many of us have fond memories of Jimmy’s laughter as he helped construct Guadalupe House and joined us in other community events. He will be missed. Our hearts go out to the Bichsel family for their loss as well as the absence of Bix in their midst. A request was made that Bix be released on Saturday for the funeral; but, this seems unlikely to be granted.
Ensuring that the BOP collects every ounce of their pound of flesh may trump any amount of comfort Bix could offer or receive from his family.
Peace to the Bichsels, the BOP, and that pound of flesh nonetheless
