My father died recently.|
As a family we never really went to church, and we weren't a religious family. We opted not to have a funeral service because my dad didn't really want one (he and Mom had thankfully taken care of most of their end-of-life plans in the past few years), but when it comes time for the burial (he wanted to be cremated and have the ashes buried), Mom and I are struggling to figure out what, if anything, to do at the grave, in regards to honoring him. I mean, since we weren't relgious, we don't have a pastor or anything that seems to be customary in these types of services/situations.
So my question is, have you attended or arranged any sort of funeral/burial service for a non-religious person? If so, what did you do to supplement the lack of any sort of church figure or scripture? Or do you have any ideas for us, if you're a non-religious person yourself?
