Like a turtle, Eddie has retreated into a hard shell that hides a soft heart. He knows he has to slowly move forward with his life, but he doesn’t know how.

He knows what it is like to be alone, and he has fought hard to move through that. He is personable and engaging, and he is able to make Eddie feel comfortable enough to open up.
