I Would like to express my appreciation for a wonderful opportunity our family had to prove that God is truly "a very present help in trouble" (Psalms). One morning I was in the bedroom getting ready for a meeting, and my wife and our children were in the dressing room adjoining the bedroom. While getting dressed, I heard one of my daughters shout, and I turned in time to see my wife falling to the floor. She had stopped breathing and was limp; she appeared to have passed away.

Throughout these moments, many thoughts were racing through my mind. I thought of leaving my wife's side and going for help. Instead, I consciously chose to stay with her and adamantly declare the truth of her spiritual existence, because foremost in my thought was the knowledge that God is All-in-all. I told my wife, "I love you; are perfect; you are included in God's perfect, spiritual creation." During this time I also asked our children to repeat Mary Baker Eddy's prayers for the children, which they did (see Miscellaneous Writings by Mrs. Eddy).
