What would you do?

I graduate college in just over a month. I have been planning a party, inviting family and friends. This day is going to be filled with mixed emotions, I am so happy I am finally getting my degree, surrounded by my husband, my best friend, and hopefully my brother ( depends on if my sister in law is having the baby). At the beginning of the party I want to play a song in memory of mom and dad. I just don't know which song to play. I know this is a person choice, but I am in desperate need of ideas. Before each of them passed away, I promised them each I would finish college and get my degree. They both even went so far as to tell me, when I am graduating, they are going to be there with me watching me walk across the stage. So if anyone sees a woman look toward the ceiling you can bet, that is me looking toward mom and dad. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wouldn't be for their help also. I really miss them so much. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes just thinking about it. I want the song to be a country song, I know there was one that came out in I think 2004 about rain being angels crying, but I can't remember the rest, or if I would even want that song. Please what in your opinion would be a good song to play in memory of the best mother and father I could ask for?

I like I'll Stand By You by Carrie Underwood! It makes me think of my brother who passed away in 2004! But any song ou choose will be perfect because your parents will know you put alot of thought into it! Congrats on graduation :)

I like the song .. I think it's called Holes in Heaven. It's the song about the girl's mother not being able to be there when she graduate and get married but she's she's watching from the Floors of Heaven. Maybe thats the name. sorry, Not so great on remembering names of songs. Congradulations and Good luck to you. I'm so proud of you!!!

The Song is Holes in the Floor of Heaven by Steve Wariner. It is great!! My husband danced with my mother in law to that song. Big tear jerker!
