Props to Chet Edwards for Opening His Home to a Hurricane Victim Family

8 September 2005 at 5:52:44 PM

U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards says he wouldn't be able to sleep knowing he ad a vacant home in Waco, where there were children of evacuees.

Edwards told The Dallas Morning News that his wife, Lea Ann, suggested loaning out their three-bedroom home.

The couple and their two children spend the school year in Washington.

Johnnie Marchand of Algiers, Louisiana, and her family moved in Saturday.

The 46-year-old widow, and a son, daughter and two grandkids originally ended up at a Baptist church in Waco.

When Edwards showed up, Marchand said she had no idea that the man wearing a T-shirt, shorts and a baseball hat was a congressman.

Edwards says he'll stay with in-laws of friends when he returns to Waco on weekends.
