If this report doesn't bring moisture to your eyes, I don't know what will.
Dying Sheila Marsh was given this one last chance to see her favourite horse after it was brought to her hospital bedside by caring staff.
The 77-year-old grandmother-of-four was clearly delighted as horse Bronwen gently nuzzled her just a few short hours before she died of cancer.
The scene - photographed at Wigan Royal Infirmary in Greater Manchester after staff moved the patient’s bed outside - reduced everyone to tears.
Daughter Tina, 33, said: “I was crying my eyes out and all the nurses were crying too.
"She took comfort out of it and it was a beautiful moment ... It was a matter of hours later that she passed away."

A heartfelt "Well done!" to the hospital staff. Thanks to them, Mrs. Marsh had the joy of a final reunion with something very special to her - might as well call the horse 'someone', come to that, given a bond that close. That's really going the extra mile. I wish more medical establishments would do likewise.
