"It was no life for him," Roquebrune (91) told the Daily Mail. She explained that Connery "couldn't express himself latterly. He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss."

Speaking of her late husband, it's clear that the loss is hard to bear: "He was a model of a man. It is going to be very hard without him, I know that."
