Friendship and companionship are integral parts of our lives. Keller lived her life in darkness, but she had friends and people who loved her. This relates to our text in the context that the ranch workers generally move through life without true friendship and companionship. All of the characters in the novel except Lennie and George suffer from loneliness. Thier lives are enriched by the relationship they've formed. Something no one else understands, and yet again, something they all desire.
