Loss of a Hume Legend
Today we celebrate the life of a friend, neighbor, legendary huntsman and life long Hume, Virginia resident, Melvin Poe. He has been a strong figure in our horse and fox hunting community since the 1940's.
I had spoken with Mr. Poe a few times over the years and there was always something to learn with each conversation. You were quick to learn about Hume in the old days and if you weren't a fox hunter you would soon want to be. He never met a stranger and enjoyed telling fox hunting stories when not hunting himself.
Our thoughts are with his family and community at this difficult time.
