Before Bailey Sellers’ dad passed away, he pre-paid for a bunch of flowers to be delivered to his daughter, every year on her birthday. Knowing he would not live to be there in person after being diagnosed with cancer, the sweet dad made an effort to make sure his daughter’s birthday was a little more special than every other day.
Bailey’s father passed away when she was 16 but she has been getting his flowers every year from the special arrangement he made. This year, the young woman received the last bunch of flowers organized by her late father. The now 21-year-old woman posted a heartfelt message to the thoughtful man who had organized the amazing gesture.
On the viral post she wrote on social media, Bailey wrote,
“My dad passed away when I was 16 from cancer. Before he died, he pre-paid flowers so I could receive them every year on my birthday. Well, these are my 21st birthday flowers and the last I’ll receive. Miss you so much, Daddy.”
The card reads:
This is my last love letter to you until we meet again. I do not want you to shed another tear for me my baby girl for I am in a better place. You are and will always be the most precious jewel I was given. It is your 21st birthday and I want you to always respect your momma and stay true to yourself. Be happy and live life to the fullest. I will still be with you through every milestone, just look around and there I will be. I love you Boo Boo and Happy Birthday!!!!
Along with the flowers she posted a sweet picture of herself sitting on her dad’s shoulders and a photo of the final card she received on her 21st birthday. The emotional post attracted a huge amount of attention on Twitter with 250,000 likes and more than 60 thousand retweets.
One person responded: “This is the DEFINITION of a real man and father, thinking less of themselves and more of showing love even when time doesn’t allow it. “I can only hope to have a man in my life like this [heart] warms my heart to see this.”
While another said: “Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t do something. If you can go through this, you can do anything. “I don’t even know you and I know you’re an immensely strong woman. Keep looking up You’re unstoppable!!”
