And no, not my funeral, its for a kind old lady from a church I used to go to. I've never been to a funeral before and I don't know what to expect. Is the food any good?

Tears = Weakness................ =)

But jokes aside I hope she is in a better place, so just act appropriately.

Honey, the food isn't as important in this stance. Try being a comfort to others who may be hurting. Your family or something. I'm sure te food will be fine though.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

Always judge a funeral on the quality of the buffet, although people may stare at you a little if you do that...
Turn around, go back.

Be obnoxious as possible, insult the family of the dead person, insult the dead person, pick fights with little children. If the food is good, eat as much as possible, as disrespectfully as possible. If the food is bad, spit in it, climb on the table like a hooligan and stomp on it whilst yelling as loud as possible. Do all of this and you are good to go. ;)

Was it everything you hoped it would be?

There was a lot of singing, which I heartily enjoyed, but the jokes were bad. The refreshments consisted of assortments of biscuits and cookies and the service was a little short. We saluted the leaving coffin as it drove out of the parking lot into heavy traffic, which was a face-palm moment, but I met a few people who I hadn't seen in ages.

All in all even though I don't have any experience with funerals, I rate this 6/10. A fair score.
