It’s hard enough dealing with all the grief surrounding anyone’s funeral. But there’s also the unique challenge of keeping religion out of it, if that’s what the family (or deceased) wants.
Jane Wynne Willson‘s book Funerals Without God has been around since 1989, but if you haven’t read it before, a new edition is now available on Kindle (with a snazzy new cover… which doesn’t really matter since it’s on the Kindle).
It’s perfect for Humanists who might become officiants one day, funeral directors who want to be able to offer non-religious services, and family members who want to put together a funeral without mentions of god.
You hope you never have to use a book like this, but if you do, it’s a good resource to have.
