Bailey Sellers from Tennessee turned 21 on November 26, 2017. This year’s birthday was very close to her heart because she had received the last flowers from her father, Michael William Sellers who died in 2013. In fact, Bailey had been receiving flowers in the name of her father on every birthday and this year’s flowers will be the LAST.
The story is heart-warming and at the same time heart-breaking as well.
BAILEY SELLERS’ BIRTHDAY PRESENT
Michael William Sellers died at the age of 56 after diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. After diagnosis, William was given 2 weeks to live but survived 6 months before passing away on August 25, 2013, leaving behind his wife Kristy Sellers and three daughters – Morgan, Abigail, and Bailey.
However, Michael William thought forward and made her youngest daughter Bailey’s birthdays special by pre-paying for flowers to be delivered to her on her birthday until she turns 21. And, on November 26, 2017, Bailey turned 21 and hence received her ‘LAST’ set of flowers 2 days before her birthday.

It is, indeed, a beautiful set of flowers.
Not just stopping there, a letter from her father turned the birthday even more special. Here it is:
Kristy Sellers, Michael’s wife knew his husband’s plan already. She said:
We were sitting on the couch — and it was about a month before he passed away — and he said he had already done it. That this was what his plans were. He said, ‘I’m going to do it until her 21st birthday. And if she’s married, ask her significant other to send her flowers in remembrance of me.’
And it’s not only Bailey, Michael William had astonished his old daughters as well. According to Kristy, Michael sent Morgan and Abigail, an embroidered handkerchief that he prayed over before his death. Michael wished both her oldest daughters to use it in their bouquets as they walk down the hallway on their wedding.
Having received her last set of flowers, Bailey knows her father is always the best one. She tells,
He was my best friend. I looked up to him so much, He was just an overall great person.
