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?
My cat ate some Azalea leaves today. He has thrown them up and seems fine now. Is he gonna be ok?
Edit: Called the vet, they said since he Doesn't have any heart problems and he threw up, he's probably gonna be fine. Just watch him through the day and give him liquids.
Do you keep your financial documents (bank statements, credit card statements, tax returns, etc.)? For how long?
If you don't keep them, or if you keep them only for a limited time, do you shred them or otherwise destroy them before throwing them away? Or do you just not worry about somebody retrieving them and using them to steal your money and/or identity?

I've seen Hairspray, Lion King, Mama Mia, Little Shop of Horrors, and Lennon.
Those yahoos occupying the bird sanctuary in Oregon have put out a call for snacks to be mailed to them, care of General Post Office. I'm thinking of sending them a postcard. What should I write on it?
