Ellen and Ed were very caring people with hearts as big as a mountain. Travelling through, I never intended to stay in N.C. but they convinced me and I stayed for 5 years. For a month, they opened up their home and their hearts to me. Ellen was the first person to teach me how to cook a turkey and make gravy. Ellen introduced me to a specific reading genre. Ed got me my job in N.C. They did so much and made me feel like "home".
