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
