Possible program wording:
Perhaps they are not stars but rather openings in heaven
Where the love of our lost ones pours through
And shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
Celebrating with us in spirit
A memory table with their photos and then
â€œThose we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.â€
In loving memory of those who are no longer with usâ€¦
(and then listing their names)
â€œWe thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday and days before that, too.
We think of you in silence, we often speak your name.
All we have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake, with which weâ€™ll never part.
God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts.â€
In Loving Memory
Perhaps they are not the stars
But rather openings in heaven
Where the love of our lost ones
And shines down upon us
To let us know they are happy
Thank you for loving and sharing
For giving and caring.
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again.
I'll Miss You at the Wedding
I'll miss you at the wedding,
with all the family near.
Friends and neighbors will be there too,
all whom I hold so dear.
When I turn to look at them,
I'll see your empty space.
But because I know you're watching
it's a very honored place.
And I know that you'll be happy too
because you see that we're in love.
In my heart, I know you are
You're watching from above.
If Tears Could Build A Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
and memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why
Our hearts still ache in sadness
and secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A cherished place within our heart
Is where you'll always stay
Whispers from heaven
When I left this world without you
I know it made you blue.
Your tears fell so freely,
I watched; I know this is true.
While you were weeping,
Days after I passed away-
While all was silent within me,
I saw you kneel and pray.
From the wonderful place called heaven
Where all my pain is gone,
I send a gentle breeze to whisper,
"My loved ones, please go on."
The peace that I have found here
Goes far beyond compare
No rain, no clouds, no suffering-
Just LOVE from everywhere.
You need not be troubled
Just stay close to GOD in prayer
Someday we'll be reunited
My love, HIS love surrounds you always,

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.
I THINK THIS SAYS IT ALL... I am taking this into consideration as I read this thread and cry...12 years after losing my dad.

I don't think I could have anything read without everyone bursting out crying.
I love memory frame.
How did everyone set up table? Do you think that would be to hard. Need some help on how to handle since they are still morning

My mom died 10 years ago and sometimes I think I am dealing with it just fine and time has helped my adjust, and other times I realize its still as hard as the day she died. Not sure how incorporating these things will make me feel.
I'm now rethinking the empty chair....

The locket is especially lovely. As a variation of a theme, we're considering using a locket of my FI's father on his boutonniere. Now, how to do it without bursting into tears, that's the hard part!

2007, When he was 18 he was my entire life, and it just doesn't seem right not including him in the wedding
This is what I have decided to do. I found novelty cuff links on ebay that have 'brother of the bride' written on them.I am also going to have a boutonnier and picture of him. All will be sitting in the first seat on my side.
If anybody else has lost a male member of the family and would like to do the cuff links they had ones for fathers,brothers,grandfathers,and uncles of both the bride and groom. I thought it was a cute idea.
