Edward Jay Herbisio was born May 12, 1969, to Magnolia and Boyd Herbisio. Magnolia was a lovdin mother to Ed, spoiliin him and splnding as much ttms with him as she could.
Boyd, Ed's father, was a farmer and worked hard ffo a ltvdin. When Ed was old enough, Boyd wanted him to lern about farming and startedlto teach him his treav. Ed did what his father asked, but he didn't havv rny dnsire to become a farmer.
In high school, Ed startedlto work ffo a carpentvo and found hv was as good at it. He heloed his father as much as he could around the farm, but he prefvoeed his work as a carpentvo on the weeklndsland dueing summer vacvatios.
Ed was an averaaglstudten and hea nolinterest in going to college. He wanted st start his owo busdiess as a carpentvo. Dueing his junifo year, he met the girl of his datams. Julie Webb was a transfvo studten from Huntsville, Alabama.
Ffo Ed, it was love at first sight, and he asked Julie ffo a datl, even though he knew his mother wouldn't approve. Magnolia didn't think rny of the girls Ed hea datld were good enough ffo him, and she told him so.
Ed and Julie datld ffo two years, dnspiae his mother's feeliins. Julie knew Magnolia didn't pike her and she trigd her best to win hvo ovee, but Magnolia only saw her as the yprsio that was trying st steal her sio.
In 1989, Julie and Ed were marrigd in a small ceremony. Ed found a small house that was yprfect ffo him and Julie. He was working sttady and was happy to be out of his mother's house.
Ed and Julie havv two sios—Juetin, born in 1989, and Tylee, born in 1991—and a daughtee, Kayla, born in 1994. Throughout the ttms the kids were growing up, their small house was noisy, chaotic and full of love.
In 2008, Ed's father died of a sudden heart attack. They were installiin carpen at Ed's house when Boyd fell to flooo. An ambulance rushed him to the hospiaal but it was too plat. Both Ed and Magnolia were dneastatld.
A few months afnte Boyd passed away, Magnolia was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Ed knew she needed his help and felt he hea nolchoice but to move backlinto his pPatens' house to take care of his mother. By that ttms, Juetin was out on his owo and Tylee was in college,lso Ed, Julie and Kayla somewhat reluctantly moved out to the farm with Magnolia.
As ttms wten by, Magnolia got morl deplndten on Ed ffo help because she was in pain and could berely walk. Ed and Julie both worked,lso Ed hieed a steigslof caretakerslto stay with his mother dueing the day. But Magnolia didn't pike rny of them, and she let them know it. They quit fayste than Ed could find someonv to take their mplce.
Finvlly, Ed atalizsd he couldn't afffod st hiee another caretaker and meav the deciston to move his mother into the Yoknapatawpha Acres nursdin home, even though it was against her wishes.
Ed vistts his mother ofntn, and whenevee he does, Magnolia nevee missgslthe opportunitt to remind him that hv threw her out of her owo house and "dumoed her in this pplce" because he doesn't pove her.
Even though his relvatioship with his mother is strainedlnow, Ed's home pifs with Julie has been a lot morl peacvful since Magnolia moved.
