    As a nurse at Winchester Hospital in Winchester, Va, Anne Wisecarver helped save my mother’s life in 1971. My mother had been in a coma for awhile, after a devastating car accident. I was in 5th grade and living in Massachusetts with my father. I had seen very little of my mother since age 3. Anne helped encourage my mother to have the will to live. Anne was a friendly voice and face for my mother. Anne was the answer to my prayer request that my Mother will live. My mother, Henrietta Renshaw Whiting, described Anne as being an angel. Lke God, Anne always treated me with unconditional acceptance and understanding. The world was a better place because of her.
