When life takes a turn for the worse, our closest friends and family gather to say their final goodbyes.
But sometimes, our best friends are left out of the equation. Not many people consider the fact that pets feel the pain and confusion of loss like we do, just in their own way. They deserve to say goodbye just like the rest of us, even if they don’t fully grasp what’s going on. This can also provide comfort to the person who’s slipping away, and that’s why this mother decided that before her son left this world, he had to see his best four-legged friend one last time.
Ryan Jessen thought he was suffering from a severe migraine that just wouldn’t let up until he made the dreaded trip to the hospital and discovered that he was suffering from a ventricular brain hemorrhage.
Jessen’s condition took a quick and deadly turn. His family was called to say farewell to the person they loved.
The family had an unusual request for hospital personnel. Jessen’s dog, Mollie, had been his best friend for years. She deserved to be there at the end.
The man’s sister captured the heartbreaking farewell on video.
Ryan Jessen’s legacy will live on, though. His heart was donated to a 17-year-old who desperately needed a transplant.
