The wife of Timothy Oakes, a British mountaineer killed along with 18 others in a plane crash in Nepal, hopes his death doesn't "deter people" from taking adventurous trips.
"It should never deter people from living out their dreams. He was a mountaineer and he always wanted to go to Everest base camp, not climb it, to go to the base camp, and that's what he was doing.
"He was going because he always wanted to see Everest. It was the trip of a lifetime, he had always wanted to do it. If you love the mountains, it is the ultimate.
"When you live, if you live your life to the full, you take risks. You can go to work in the morning and get run over by a car.
"People have got to live and enjoy what they want to do. That is exactly what Tim would want people to do."
