Saying goodbye to a loved one is probably the most difficult thing.


Shared reported a touching story of Bailey Sellers who was 16 years old when her father died due to pancreatic cancer.

Michael Sellers battled for six months with cancer but lost. But before he passed away, he became very close to his daughter, Bailey.

She was home-schooled so that she could help her mother out. Her father could not work anymore

As Michael was preparing for the end of his life, he was constantly thinking about his daughter’s future and could not think of being separated from Bailey.

The family learned of his plans a few months after his died. A bouquet of flowers arrived at the Sellers family home on Bailey’s 17th birthday. A note accompanying the flowers read, ‘I loved you first… happy 17th! Love, Dad.’

Bailey’s mother, Kristy, said he had shared the plan with her a month before he died. He had explained that he had purchased a bouquet of flowers for their daughter’s next five birthdays. He had also left a special note with each one.


As planned, the youngster received her final bouquet with her father’s touching final message. The 21st birthday turned out to be a bittersweet one for Bailey.

She shared the photo of her final gift from her father on Twitter. The photo has gone viral due to her father’s last message.

‘It is your 21st birthday and I want you to always respect your momma and yourself. Be happy and live life to the fullest. I will still be with you through every milestone, just look around and there I'll be.’

He had mentioned that this would be his last letter for her until they meet again. He did not want her to shed another tear for him because he was in a better place, adding that she will be the most precious jewel he was given to him.

Michael had another request which he had expressed to his wife. When Bailey gets married, he hoped that her husband would carry on the birthday tradition he started.

The family said that Michael would be very proud of all the attention his special messages have gotten on social media.
