I have been wanting to find a way to remember those who will be with us only in spirit on our wedding day without screaming "This is a memorial display". I think I may have found a solution. There is an upright piano at the entrance of the barn where the reception is being held. I have asked my mom, my dad's sister and FMIL for pictures of their parents on their wedding days. I am having the picture of my dad from his military record framed. I'm going to put the picture on the top of the piano an put the sheet music for "When I Get Where I am Going
" (sung by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton) on the piano like someone is getting ready to play the song. Both of my grandmothers played piano and always kept family pictures on the top of the piano.
