KNOXVILLE, Tennessee- A father dying of cancer wanted to make sure his daughter knew he loved her and that she be o.k. Bailey Sellers says her dad passed away when she was 16-years-old from the disease, but before his death he arranged for flowers to be delivered to her every year on her birthday until she turned 21.
Friday was Bailey’s 21st birthday and the final delivery came with this card:
“Bailey, 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!!!! – Daddy”
Mr. Sellers succumbed to cancer at age 56.
