KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A 21-year-old has been receiving flowers from her deceased dad for the last five years.

Bailey Sellers' Saturday tweet went viral overnight, getting more than 300,000 retweets by Sunday.  Sellers shared pictures of flowers and a note from her father received this weekend on her 21st birthday.  Her dad died when she was 16-years-old but pre-ordered flowers for her next five birthdays before he died.

Sellers said her dad died of cancer five years ago.  Each year since, she's received the flowers.  This birthday was the last.

"I don't want you to shed another tear for me," Sellers' father messaged through a pre-written note.

"I will still be with you through every milestone, just look around and there I will be," he wrote to her.

In her tweet, Sellers shared that she misses her father and has been touched each year she's received the flowers.

"Miss you so much daddy," she posted on Twitter.
