Saying Something Nice About The Departed

This Reuters article, Eulogy sex ban at Aussie funerals, really should have come with some anecdotes, there's got to be a few hilarious stories behind this:
"On not a few occasions, inappropriate remarks glossing over the deceased's proclivities (drinking prowess, romantic conquests etc) or about the Church (attacking its moral teachings) have been made at funeral masses," Pell's new guidelines say.

He said the comments often embarrassed the priest, the family and the congregation and become the focus of the service.

Oh come on! Do tell...
