Program - Grandparents Question

I'm working on my programs right now & I'm having a little problem.

My grandpa passed away a few years ago.  I want to list both my grandma, (who is still living), & my grandpa, in the Grandparents of Bride section.

Right now I have...
Grandparents of Bride... Grandma B & the late Grandpa B.

Does that look/sound weird?  Is there anyway to list a deceased grandparent there?

Also, I understand that the function of the program is supposed to be to help identify the significant players to the guests & that it may be confusing to list someone who is no longer living.  But, my grandpa held a very significant role in my life, (and still does), so I feel it appropriate to list him. 

TIA ladies!

    My husband's father, all of my husband's grandparents and 3/4 of my grandparents are deceased, so we only listed the parents and grandparents who were living. We had a separate section for those who had passed:

    We Remember
    In loving memory of those who could not be with us today:

    Father of the Groom
    Dennis _________

    Grandparents of the Bride
    Martin __________
    Thomas and Ruth _________

    Grandparents of the Groom
    Frank and Angela _________
    Frank and Frances _________

    Ditto Beka.  This is exactly what we're doing for FI's dad and my grandparents that are deceased.

    Typically it is done with a statement at the end of the program to honor those that have passed away, but I personally think that how you'd like to do it sounds just fine too. As is the answer to many questions, it's your wedding, do it how you wish to.

    Andrea, ditto the PP we are doing a "In honor of those who have passed away and could not be in attendence with us today there are blah blah blah - Bride's Grandparents: NAMES Bride's Godparents: NAMES Groom's Grandparents" NAMES"
    I have seen (at my BF's wedding) where she wrote something about each person that had passed away that was special to her/her husband - a memory or even something along the lines of "every day I follow the words my grandfather taught me at a young age "blah blah blah"" .
