MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Memphis family is spending the holidays apart, but they found a way to be together on their Christmas card.

Daniel Sanders is spending Christmas deployed this year for the first time.

His wife Ashlie, their daughter, and their two dogs have to make due back in Memphis without Daniel.

To show he’s with them in their hearts, Daniel took his place on half of the Christmas card, holding up ‘Merry’ from overseas while Ashlie, Gracelynn, Ranger, and Zeek held up the ‘Christmas’ end of the sign from home.

It’s a unique Christmas card for a family that would rather be spending the holiday together.

As for Daniel, they hope to have him home for the couple’s third anniversary, which will come in February.
