Many thanks to Alex Sharp for his sensitive and entertaining piece on Big Boy’s departure to another realm. Also my thanks to Jenks Hobson (the Blesser), Tom Massie (the Euthanizer) and to Morris Butler and Darrell Clark (the Undertakers). Big Boy will leave a big hole in our farm life, but his progeny lives on. He was our gentle giant, and his manhood, one of the seven wonders of Rappahannock County.
