Sarah, you must be thinking of the "funeral service".

 

The "eulogy" is the the talk given by someone who hopefully knew the deceased well.  Perhaps the speaker is a brother, sister, son, daughter, friend, etc.  Sometimes the speaker is a priest or pastor.

 

Many years ago, an acquaintance of mine was murdered during a robbery.  Rodrigo had been an SOB (filho da mãe) for most of his life, and I have no doubt that his less than charming personality contributed to his death.  Out of respect for his parents, I attended the service with Alberto, a mutual friend who had the same opinion of Rodrigo that I had.  The eulogy was given by a priest.  It was quite a contrast.  The priest was saying wonderful things about Rodrigo, but Alberto and I had quite different memories of him.  After the service, we spoke briefly with the priest.  To our amusement, the priest said, "I didn't know him personally, but I understand that he had...a very...difficult personality."  Yes, that summed it up nicely.  Rodrigo had not been a very pleasant man, but nobody deserves to be shot during a robbery.  The killers were never found.  They say that there is no such thing as a perfect crime.  Any crime is perfect if the criminal is not arrested and convicted.  His death must have been terrible for his parents.
