Bailey Sellers' father from Tennessee, USA, died of cancer when the girl was 16 years old. However, realizing that he would no longer be near his beloved daughter, including on his birthday, the man ordered and paid for the delivery of flowers and a greeting card for five years ahead. And so for five years Bailey has been receiving a bouquet of flowers and congratulations from her dad every year on her birthday.

On November 24, Bailey turned 21, and flowers were brought to her, as always. Only this bouquet was the last. Along with the flowers, the girl received the last words from her father.

In the last postcard , the girl 's father wrote: "Bailey, this is my last letter to you until we meet again. I don't want you to shed even one tear, my girl, because I'm in a better place right now. You have always been and will always be my main treasure. Today is your 21st birthday, and I want you to always respect Mom and stay true to yourself. Be happy and live life to the fullest. I'll always be with you, just look around and I'll be there. I love you, baby, and happy birthday!!! Dad."
