‘She is where she is. I can’t make her be anywhere else - I need to be with her where she is and I need to try and understand and if I can’t understand, then I need to know that she is trying to do her best at all times - to be whatever it is in the moment that she feels. I do actually believe that both of us grew through that experience and through being able to maintain a connection right up to the very end.’
