Sheila Marsh had one final wish to see her favourite horse, Bronwen before she died, metro UK reports.
Luckily, hospital staff at Wigan Royal Infirmary were able to organise the horse and its owner to meet one last time on the steps of the establishment.
Only hours later, Mrs Marsh sadly passed away following her fight with cancer.
The 77-year-old grandmother-off-four has raised Bronwen from a foal, caring for the animal for a quarter of a century.
The hospital’s bereavement liaison specialist nurse, Gail Taylor told the Manchester Evening News: ‘We listened and acted on Mrs Marsh’s last wishes.
‘Sheila gently called to Bronwen and the horse bent down tenderly and kissed her on the cheek as they said their last goodbyes.’
