THE MEANING BEHIND THE CARD

Lynn's dad attached a card with the bouquet, which had a hidden meaning. The heart-wrenching note only consisted of a few simple words, but it spoke volumes to Lynn and her mother.

"I have never cried so hard over 4 simple words."

Her parents' wedding song was "You Had Me From Hello" by Kenny Chesney, and when Lynn's dad heard "Always Gonna Be You," also by Chesney, he declared it their "finale song."
