Dog Visits Dying Owner In Hospital To Say The Final Goodbye

ADVERTISEMENT

When a 33-year-old Ryan Jessen suddenly passed away from brain hemorrhage last month, hospital staff showed a very unexpected gesture. “The hospital did the sweetest thing for us and allowed us to bring my brother’s dog in to ‘say goodbye’ so she’d know why her human never came home. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog,” Ryan’s sister Michelle wrote on her Facebook page.

While the video capturing the tender moment between Ryan and his dog Molly was intended for the family circle, it got a response from all over the world. “We are sincerely touched and humbled by others’ stories, their sharing in our sadness and the kindness of so many people,” Michelle writes.

Ryan’s sister was quick to reassure that Molly the grieving dog is in good hands: “Don’t worry about the dog! We’re keeping her!!! She’s part of the family.” Michelle also added that Ryan’s donor heart is about to save the life of a 17-year-old, just in time for Christmas
