My neighbor saw the ambulance take my husband away that day. She couldn’t comprehend why I was not with him. She didn’t take the time to decide if she would be intruding on my privacy. She marched in my home only to find me exhausted and breathing heavily from trying to administer CPR to my husband for what seemed like 20 minutes. I literally could not catch my breath.

To me, it wasn’t a neighbor who walked in. It was an Angel.
