Tennessee-born Bailey Sellers received the most memorable 21st birthday card earlier this week.

Her father, Mike Sellers, sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer back in 2013. But this hasn’t stopped him from celebrating her birthday every year since she was 17.

Before his death, he prepaid a flower shop to deliver a bouquet and birthday card to his daughter every year.

And this time, he sent his last gift on her 21st celebrations.

Inside the card her father wrote: “I am in a better place. You are and will always be the most precious jewel I was given. I will still be with you through every milestone. Just look around and there I will be.”

He added that this marked the last letter he would send ‘until we meet again’.

Bailey took to Twitter to share an image of the incredible gift and wrote:

“My dad passed away when I was 16 from cancer and before he died he pre-paid flowers so i could receive them every year on my birthday. Well, this is my 21st birthday flowers and the last. Miss you so much daddy.”

And thousands of Twitter users took to the social media platform to give their support.

Bailey is currently studying psychology at Tennessee State University in hope of helping others who have suffered from grief.
