In gratitude to God, and with the sincere desire that my experience may help others struggling with a similar problem, I give this testimony.

In the Christian Science textbook. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, we find this question (p. 266): "Would existence without personal friends be to you a blank?" For many years after I began the study of Christian Science I avoided answering this question. I even avoided reading it, for it seemed to me that existence would indeed be a blank to me without my dear ones. But as I grew in the understanding of this Science, I began to realize that I was not doing right. I knew that Science and Health was written through inspiration; that all of it was to be read, studied, lived, and loved; and that I had no right to avoid reading any part of it. So I began to face that question, and I realized that the answer was "No": that existence could never be a blank while I had God and some understanding of Christian Science. Later came the testing time, when one very dear to me passed on after a brief illness.
