Girl gets final flowers on her 21st from dad who died from cancer five years ago


Bailey Sellers’ 21st birthday is tinged with sadness as she’s received a final bouquet of flowers from her dead father.

He pre-paid for a floral delivery each year since he died from cancer when she was just 16.

She’s been receiving them with a note for the past five years.

This year’s message said: “I will still be with you with every milestone, just look around and there I will be.”

In a heartbreaking post on Twitter, Bailey, who’s from Knoxville in America, explained what her amazing father had done adding: “Miss you so much daddy.”

“I do not want you to shed a tear for me my baby girl for I am in a better place.”
