‘Heartwarming Yet Heartbreaking Story’

A daughter shared that she lost her father to cancer when she was only 16. Apparently, her loving father arranged it so that she gets to receive flowers and a note card from him until she reaches 21.

Together with the flowers she gets a card from him, too. However, the bouquet of flowers she received was the last as she has turned 21 already.

She shared,  “Well, these are my 21st birthday flowers and the last I’ll receive. Miss you so much, Daddy.” 

His last handwritten card reads: “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!!!! Daddy.”
