If someone said to me 'look, your wife's dead, sorry and all that stuff, there's not much we can do about it but, you can visit her once a week for two hours; you can hold her hand, you can talk to her, bring her a couple of books, kiss her goodbye'... I would settle for that. I'd settle for once a month. I'd settle for once a year. I'd settle for one minute more for the rest of my life, just to see her again.
