"We didn't take the elevator," she says. "I threw my things and ran into the room. It was clear to me that it was the end. He was surrounded by a team of nurses and doctors who were doing compressions on his chest to keep him alive. That's one thing I also said to Eileen. I said, 'Keep him alive until I get there.'
