One Tennessee 21-year-old recently celebrated a birthday she will likely never forget.

In a now viral story on Twitter, Bailey Sellers' father passed away from cancer when she was 16.

Since then, she has received flowers every year on her birthday from her dad who prepaid for them before his untimely death.

Sellers shared her story on Twitter Friday, her 21st birthday, the last she will receive the flowers from her father.

In her tweet, which has more than 1 million likes and 350,000 retweets, she shared the flowers, card, and a throwback photo of her and her father.

Her father's last card read:

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!!!!
