I am writing a blurb about my photography book that I have dedicated to my late father.
I am looking for a word to complete the sentence.
Here is the sentence:
"I dedicated the book to my late father in … that he could see these places with me."

...which meaning you wish to convey will affect the rest of the sentence, particularly the verb tenses in the latter part. For example: I dedicate this book to my late father, wishing he could have seen these places with me (that's wistfulness, wishing he could have been there). Or: I dedicate this book to my late father, hoping he has seen these places with me (that's expressing a hope that your father has been with you in spirit as you took your pictures). – J.R.♦ Feb 23 2015
