Religious funerals are almost always filled with reverent, lofty sermons and messages about a reunion of loved ones in Paradise.

But what about those who are non-believers?  How does the atheist or agnostic wish to be memorialized?  What kind of ceremony or service would he/she want?  What are the attributes of some atheist funerals you've attended?  Or do you want a funeral at all?
