A young woman has touched millions of hearts after she tweeted a photo of a heartfelt card sent to her by her father on her 21st birthday — five years after he died.
Bailey Sellers, from Tennessee in the US, lost her father, Michael when she was just 16 years old, but she said that every year until she turns 21, her father had organised for her to receive flowers and a card on her birthday.
This year, as she turns 21, she marked it with an emotional post on Twitter, along with photos of a beautiful bouquet and a heartfelt card. She wrote:
