Charles Wachal lost his wife on Valentine's Day.
 
Before she passed, she told Wachal she put private videos on her Facebook for him to watch after she died.
 
But when he finally went to log onto her account, he says Facebook denied him access.
 
He said Facebook actually changed it to a memorialized account that no one can log into.

News10NBC spoke with Wachal Sunday afternoon about the ordeal.
