Father continues to send flowers to his daughter, seven years after passing away

Bailey Sellers was just 16 years old when her father passed away from pancreatic cancer. 

Before he passed, he prepaid to have flowers to be delivered to her every birthday, until she turned 21. 

On the day of her 21st birthday she received her final bunch of flowers, along with a very special note. 

Speaking to Love What Matters, Bailey reveals what the note said: 

"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!"

We're not crying, you're crying. 

Readers expressed their sympathy for Bailey and the Sellers family, as well as sharing their own stories of loss: 

What a truly inspirational father, "be true to yourself" are definitely words to live by.
