When the time came to say goodbye to Ryan Jessen, his family knew there was one friend who had to be included.
His loyal dog Mollie.
Ryan suffered a brain haemorrhage aged just 33 and by the time he got to hospital, doctors said he couldn’t be saved.
As his parents and sister Michelle gathered themselves to pay their final respects, they knew someone was missing.
Fortunately, the hospital kindly allowed Mollie to be brought in and Michelle captured this heartbreaking video as she licked her owner one last time.
