Hospitals are not animal-friendly places, but this one made a special exception to allow Mollie the dog to bid a tender farewell to her dying owner, Ryan Jessen. Ryan was hospitalized last month after suffering from a brain hemorrhage, and doctors had to tragically inform his friends and family that there was no hope for recovery.
Knowing how much his best friend meant to him, the hospital allowed Mollie one final visit.
Sadly, Ryan Jessen passed away on November 30, 2016.
He was an organ donor, and his heart has gone on to a 17-year-old boy in California whose birthday is on Christmas.
Michelle Jessen was also sure to emphasize that Mollie would be staying on with them as she is “part of the family.”
