Linda's suffering is way, way beyond my comprehension. I hold her, but that is not possible most of the time.

When there are no words, no physical comfort possible, only being very still and loving is all you can do; when contact is agony any slight movement likely to cause pain and any noise a torture, stillness and love alone are all you have.

However even that is difficult - and risky.
