I am working on my programs and need help with wording for the last part, where we will remember the grandparents who are no longer with us.
I am going to title the section “In Loving Memory” but then I am stuck on what to put under it.
can you give me the wording you may have used for this part on your programs?

I can’t say that I used this… But I came across this in a picture online next to a candle.
“In loving memory of those who are forever present in our hearts.”

This what we wrote. We included some family members that had died before we were born…
“On this most special milestone in our lives, we wish to lovingly remember those close to our hearts who are no longer with us. We know they are here with us in spirit. For those we never had the opportunity to meet, you none the less have had an impact on our lives. For those who’s time with us was too short, we have wonderful memories of the precious times we shared and they will be cherished forever…”
GWAAA–in typing this from our program, I just found a typo!

We said this: Although we are separated physically, faith and love have bound us eternally. Though we cannot see you, we know you are here with us, watching over us. Though we cannot touch you, we feel the warmth of your smile as we begin this new chapter in our lives. You have shaped our characters, molded our spirits, and touched our hearts in many ways. Through how you have touched our lives and the lives of the ones we love, you have an everlasting impact on us.

I love that orchid84!! I will be using that. My FH’s grandmother passed away a couple of weeks ago from cancer and we are saving her a seat and this would be nice to put in the chair. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

I got this from another bee (can’t for the life of me remember which!) I loved the simplicity of it, but also that it conveyed our feelings.
To those loved ones who could not be here today:
We wish you could be standing here with us today, but we know you are here in spirit. You are in our hearts always; we love and miss you.

I used one I found online, and then reworded it to suit me and my personality/beliefs. It said also that we were looking for the day when we would meet again. My fiance lost his uncle last year… it was very hard on the entire family. we didn’t list names, there are too many and we didn’t want to leave anyone out, but I know that it will touch their hearts.
