Still and All, a Nice Tombstone

Virginia Hooks decided to honor her late husband by memorializing his part-time job.

So she put a picture of a whiskey still and a pair of moonshiners on Billy Joe Hooks' grave marker near Golden Pond, the tiny Trigg County community dubbed "Moonshine Capital of the World."

One of the moonshiners is Hooks, who died in 2004. He was 72.

"He made a little moonshine, but not enough to amount to anything," his widow said. "But he loved the history of it." [Link]
