I am very grateful to have been brought up in a home where Christian Science was loved and lived, and to have been taught for some years in a Christian Science Sunday School. Although my interest seemed to wane for a period, the understanding of God I had gained never left me, and I gradually came to realize that no other teaching or philosophy could satisfy me.

When I was nineteen, my mother, who was very close to me, passed on. Only a few days before, I had gained great inspiration from an editorial in The Christian Science Journal entitled "Weep Not." This inspiration so remained with me that not for one moment was I touched by any suggestion of loss or grief. I saw that in truth I had no cause to weep or mourn, and instead I was able truly to rejoice that man had never lived or died in matter and that his real identity as God's reflection could never be lost. I was completely sustained through the days that followed.
