Duane Gentry as “Your Groovy HVAC Guy”

Duane Gentry is the owner and “team leader” for Gentry Heating and Cooling. A third generation owner and native of Asheville, he brings many years of experience to the company. After college, Duane spent 10 years working for larger corporations. In 1997 he returned home to run the family’s business.

Morgan Harrell as “Ella Minnope”

Ella Minnope (pronounce Ella Minnow Pea) is a time traveling secret agent from the year 1967. She’s on a top secret mission to save the world and look absolutely fabulous while doing it!

My real name is Morgan Harrell. I’m a junior at UNCA and I’ve been with Moore Funeral Home at Forest Lawn for three years. I’m majoring in Photography and in my spare time I foster sick and injured cats through the Asheville Humane Society.






Erin Renison

I am an Asheville native. I have worked at Moore at Forest Lawn for about 3 years. Having seen the heartache that HIV can cause a family, I am so excited to be a part of supporting this cause. I am thankful to work somewhere that allows me to participate so closely in supporting our community.  I love hanging out with my pitt bulls, Lucky and Bella, and really don’t have much of a story worth telling without talking about Jesus.
