Bailey Sellers, a college student from East Tennessee State University, received her final birthday flower for her 21st birthday from her late father. 

Bailey explained to Fresh U that her father died from cancer when she was 16 years old and before passing away, he pre-paid flowers so that she can have them every year on her birthday and on her 16th birthday she received her first bouquet of flowers as a surprise.
