Default Your Funeral

On a sleepless night, when you are awake in bed, do you ever contemplate your mortality? I do. I have even thought about my own funeral. If your own death was preceded by a long illness and you had time to plan for your funeral, what scripture readings would you want recited? What hymns would you want sung? Is there an excellent sermon that you have heard that you would want preached at your funeral? Would you want special instruments played, like a harp or bagpipes? What epitaph would you want on your tombstone? I recently had a will drawn up and was thinking of specifying funeral arrangements (I'm not planning to die anytime soon . . . but man knows not his time). This thread is a conversation starter but it also has a selfish motive. If I hear some good ideas, I may take them for my own funeral.
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
--Hugh Latimer, October 16, 1555
