@Pammyd:  So sorry for your familiy’s loss hon.  But I think your final line above said it perfectly!  

“Thank you for coming and sharing in the celebration of our love.  We could only hope that we share the same depth of love that you and aunt (name) did in all your years together.  Wishing you our sincere thanks and heartfelt blessings….”

Something along those lines…

I would just try to be really honest. You can’t really pretend she wasn’t there or that she’s gone now. Chances are really good that reading it will make him sad again, but that’s kind of expected when something so awful happens. Maybe something like this:

Dear Uncle Martin:

I’m really glad that you and Aunt Cindy were able to attend the wedding before she passed. You are both in our hearts, and we’re glad we got to share our wedding with you.

Thank you for coming, and thanks for the toaster oven. When Darling Husband and I use it, we’ll always remember you and Aunt Cindy out on the dance floor. Please let us know if we can do anything for you.


Thanks again,

I think what either one of the PPs said is perfect!

Agreed – I was going to suggest something like, “We are so blessed to have such wonderful memories of Aunt from the wedding and will always cherish them”
