That is a sad story. I’m sorry for your loss, and for the way your Dad was treated. Hadn’t she heard the words in the marriage vows: “in sickness and in health, till death do us part?” The reality is that women live 5 years longer than men, so even if they were the same age, there’s a good chance she would have out-lived him.

This was a long bow to draw to disparage the term “at least.” I should have said “I thought it was great that a woman was the hero, while the male lead was merely a supporting actor: it’s about time!”
