DETROIT - John Hernandez has already done his part for the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" build.
It was the Grand Limousine owner who donated his services and drove
Arlene Nickless and her three boys to a hotel near Detroit Metro
Airport on Friday.
On Sunday, though, Hernandez was back at the Nickless' home, waiting
for crews to knock it down for the hit ABC show.
"A lot of people in the community are excited for the family," said
Hernandez, who plans to return this week to volunteer and will drive
the family to their new home on Friday. "I'm glad somebody locally was
able to have this happen to them."
Hernandez said Arlene left Holt excited and overwhelmed. Her contact
with people back in Holt will be limited as she and her three youngest
sons vacation this week at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.
"I just told her everything is going to be good," Hernandez said of
the limo ride. " 'When you come back Friday, you'll forget about all
the things you've been through and you'll start new.'
"She just relaxed and fell asleep."
