People have took to Twitter, to share their emotional messages, after a man made an extraordinary gesture for his daughter, prior to his death.
When Bailey Seller learnt he was dying of cancer he made an arrangement at a florist for flowers to be delivered to her every birthday.
On her 21st birthday this year, Bailey, from Tennessee, uploaded a picture of one bouquet of flowers and beside it, a heartfelt message:

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.

This is the DEFINITION of a real man and father, thinking less of themselves and more of showing love even when time doesn’t allow it.
I can only hope to have a man in my life like this [heart] warms my heart to see this.
Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t do something. If you can go through this, you can do anything.
I don’t even know you and I know you’re an immensely strong woman. Keep looking up You’re unstoppable!!
Thank you for sharing. Obviously I don’t know u [sic] but your dad was clearly an amazing man. My patients who are brave enough to advance plan feel happy & at peace that their loved 1s [sic] will receive books/flowers/cards as a comfort. Heartbreaking & warming at the same time take care.
What an amazing final gesture to make and be remembered by.
