Giraffe saying hello to terminally ill patient during “last wish” event in Dutch zoo. This is heartbreaking but also amazing that she got to have her last wish and hopefully be at peace.

54 year old Mario spent 25 years of his life cleaning after the animals and doing odd jobs at a dutch zoo.

After becoming terminally ill, Mario asked for one final wish to visit the animals.

He spent so many years caring for Mario was wheeled around the zoo in his hospital bed and stopped by the giraffe enclosure.

What happened next will melt your heart?

One of the curious animals gave him a tender send off as he licked his face.

A worker from the Ambulance Wish Foundation said Mario gotta lick on his nose after a lot of sniffles.

It was the last greeting to each other that gave everybody watching goose bumps.
