 Wanted: funeral organisers with the Humanist touch

Non-religious equivalents of christenings, weddings, and funerals are booming in popularity, and the Humanist Society of Scotland yesterday appealed for more volunteers to carry them out:
Ivan Middleton, society secretary, said: "Increasingly people instruct their solicitors that they want a humanist ceremony when they die. I think the idea is catching on, because the message is getting through that you can have a dignified, structured, personal and meaningful ceremony without bringing religion into it. We also give the religious members of the congregations the opportunity for prayer and allow the others to reflect on the life of the person who has died."

Spiffy! I've been meaning to update my will.. now I have something to add :)
