“See Me for Me!”

Therese

Therese wants you to know that she’s a person just like you. She went to Catholic school and worked for many years for an order of nuns in Detroit. Her faith is very important to her and she occasionally serves as a Eucharistic Minister at St. Regis Church. Her hobbies include making necklaces and reading joke books. She loves to have fun.

Molly

Molly loves making keychains and coloring in adult coloring books, but she always gives her keychains away as gifts. It makes her happy to help people. Chinese and Mexican food are her favorites and she loves show tunes.

Molly calls herself the “Go Girl” as she loves to travel anywhere and especially loves going to Pistons and Red Wings games. Molly has worked at New Horizons for years and enjoys living with her housemates at the Middlebury Home. She loves her family, brothers, nieces, and nephews – she is a proud aunt!

James

James is truly one of Angels’ Place’s most precious gifts. In 1956, James was born at Hutzel Hospital in Detroit. He was developmentally disabled, legally blind, and was given away at birth without even a name on his birth certificate. He was introduced to Angels’ Place in 2000 and, after nearly two decades, is able to continually achieve his long-expressed desire to live more independently.

In his free time, James enjoys times of quiet prayer, spending time with his Holy Family home roommates, and watching WXYZ Action News. His involvement in the church choir ignited his love for singing, and he loves to share his gift of song with others. James, a man who once did not even have a name, now makes a positive impact on everyone he meets. He truly inspires the community each day.

Ryan

A resident of the Angels’ Place Lochdale Home since 2009, Ryan has been creating wonderful artwork for over 20 years, and much of it can be seen on display in his home as well as in the homes of his friends and family. His subjects range from scenes of nature to favorite sports figures. Although Ryan is skilled with watercolor, pastels, and pencil sketches, he loves talking to other artists about their techniques and learn as much as he can.

Ryan is also a devoted baseball fan, and a member of the Angels’ Place Miracle League where his nickname is “Home Run Ryan.”

Since a young age, it has been said that Larry’s “purpose in life” so to speak, is to always see the good in something not so good and to subtly share this gift with the world around him. If asked how his day at work was, he will always respond it was “wonderful,” even if it wasn’t. That’s because he truly believes that it was so. And if you tell him that you’re not exactly having the best day, he will attempt to cheer you up, always ending with “but I love you anyway.” It’s really hard not to believe him, and you always end up wishing you could have the beautiful outlook that Larry has been blessed with since the beginning.
