Non-religious (Atheist) Funeral

If the honoree was an Atheist, Humanist, or not a follower of any religion, ceremonies or services can take on a number of forms. These memorial services focus on celebrating the person's life, and giving family and friends a chance to grieve together.

Because there are no rituals connected to a nonreligious service, pretty much anything goes: expect inspirational readings, anecdotes and stories, favorite songs and poems, even video testimonials. Family, friends and acquaintances could be asked to share their favorite memories with others in attendance.

If the service is taking place in a funeral home, call ahead and ask the funeral director for information about the service.
