Dying Army and Vietnam veteran, Roberto Gonzalez, from Premont, Texas, who was receiving care at Audie Murphy Veterans Hospital in San Antonio had a special request this weekend, he wanted to see his beloved horses one final time.

The vet’s family relayed his request to hospital staff who agreed and on Saturday his two horses were brought to the hospital’s front doors where Gonzales, surrounded by family, had his final visit with them.

In a Facebook post Sunday his wife Rosario Gonzalez thanked the spinal cord staff at the hospital and called them angels blessed by God for the care they have given to her husband.
