    I don't know how I am going to use this, but I want to somehow. This is the perfect poem for me and my dad:

    Dear Lord please clear a spot for him:
    he should have the perfect view.
    His little girl's a Bride today,
    and I am counting on you.
    Let me feel his presence;
    as I journey down the aisle.
    But let me notice his absence;
    if only for a while.
    Let me stop to think of him;
    As I am given away.
    And know that if he could;
    he would be here with me today.
    Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;
    he should have the perfect view.
    And if he should get sad today;
    Dear Lord I count on you.

      That is beautiful Lizz. You should put it in a frame, and set it up at a table at your ceremony, or on a chair where he would have been sitting.

          This is a great thread/topic because just about everyone has lost someone special in our lives. I lost my grandmother just a few months ago after a brave/strong/courageous.... battle with cancer. Every time my dad saw her she would ask if I was getting married yet. Although the engagement was after her death I know she smiles upon me. I think that I would use the first part in my program and ask the people there to read/recite/pray/think the second part out loud. ("Perhaps they are not stars".... for program and someone reading "Those we love do not go away.'

          Good Luck finding the perfect way to honor those who have left you behind... in the end I think that - the people that you have loved that passed away are still with you. No matter what you say for them... they know that the love was a two way street and love does not need words.

          Thank you for the post.

          ps- I am totally tearing up with the tears flowing down (aka crying)

            This post rocks! I lost my awesome grandfather several years ago to a heart attack. I am in contact with the American Heart Association to try to come up with some favors for our welcome bags. I have looked into doing something with Susan G. Komen too. Maybe you could do something like this if it is appropriate.

                  Lizz - That poem is very sweet. That's a good idea to have it set up at your ceremony.

                  I think I may blow up a picture of my Mom, put it in a frame, and set it up at my ceremony. I don't think I can have anything said though, too sad...

                    Lizz - you just made me cry. I am lucky enough to still have both parents, but that poem is really touching. Still blinking away the tears...

                      I just want to say thank you for this post. I, too, have lost my father and my sister who was 7 months pregnant with my nephew, who didn't survive either. It has been so hard planning my wedding because the thought of them not being there is very difficult. Thanks for letting me see that I am not alone and sharing such great ideas.

                      I LOVE THIS FORUM!!!!!!!!
