“In fact, I was the last person to see her alive. And I am going to do everything I can to push this euthanasia - because that’s something else now that… I just want to say I’m so sorry… she did not look like a human being.
 
“She was so thin, her eyes were sunken into her head, you know it was horrendous. That’s not a way to live, and she was like that for many many years, and it’s just it’s not fair.
 
“You know, I’d have these like graphic, I guess they’re like daydreams of wanting to help her and like how can I help her? And I’d have these horrific images of suffocating her with a pillow or how can I push her, how can I help her out of this - because there’s nothing.
 
“You can’t do anything. It’s just really tough. It’s just really tough to watch someone you love just completely wither away, and then get stuck."
