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

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.’
