What better way to celebrate the end of the week than with some pure, unadulterated sob-fuel? Witness Mario--just Mario--a 54-year-old man who spent most of his life working at Holland's Diergaarde Blijdorp zoo in Rotterdamn. Dying of terminal cancer, Mario requested that his hospital bed be wheeled into the giraffe enclosure. What happened next is...well, just look at the pictures.
Soon after Mario was brought into the enclosure, one giraffe approached to give him a kiss goodbye.
"These animals recognized him, and felt that things aren't going well with him," Kees Veldboer, founder of the Ambulance Wish Foundation told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. Veldboer's charity, which grants dying wishes to the terminally ill, transported Mario to the zoo.
"It was a very special moment. You saw him beaming."
I am a giraffe lover.....and now I love them even more. ♥♥♥♥♥
