When my father passed away, his funeral was nothing reflecting who he really was. Us kids had no contribution to it as my step-mother planned it all and it was more about their life together and less about him as a person. It did spawn conversation between my husband and myself about how we would like to be remembered, what we'd like our funeral to be like, etc. Good conversations.
But how soon is too soon to start official funeral planning? We have no kids, so if we don't do it, some removed family member will have to do it and they are much less likely to know what we want.
