Bailey Sellers’ turned 21 years old on Friday and she received the final bouquet of flowers from her father who passed away 5 years ago.
Bailey’s father prepaid for a bouquet of flowers to be delivered to his daughter on her birthday each year until she turned 21, knowing he wouldn’t live to be there in person after he was diagnosed with cancer five years ago.
On Friday, she received the last bunch of flowers with a heart-warming card from her father.
