Dog visits dying owner in hospital for closure

A man’s best friend got a little bit of closure as her 33-year-old owner died of a brain hemorrhage.

Ryan Jesson’s sister Michelle Jessen wrote, "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."

Ryan Jesson initially thought he had a migraine, but later learned it was a ventricular brain hemorrhage.

Jesson said if you know my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.

She also added, "Don't worry about the dog! We're keeping her! She's part of the family."

A 17-year-old California boy whose birthday is on Christmas will receive Ryan Jesson's heart. Michelle wrote on Facebook, "As sad as it is to lose Ryan, we know his heart is going to bring so much joy to the family of the recipient. I wish Ryan could know what a difference his heart will make for that young man."
