When this perishable body puts on imperishability, and this mortal body puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will be fulfilled: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." (1 Corinthians 15:54
I think funerals should be more of a celebration for Christians. After all, we are celebrating someone's life who is now in the presence of God. As horrible as Jesus death was, we celebrate it because he died for our sins. And the Bible tells us that after three days, Jesus rose up to new life in God's heavenly kingdom. What a great hope we have through Jesus Christ, and what a celebration!
God of peace, help me to be at peace with those who die in Christ, so that I can celebrate life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
