No, no, no!
Funerals are not about you. They're about Jesus.
They're not about what you have done, they're about what Jesus has done for you.
When you die, if I do your funeral, I will say what a horrible sinner you were, and that will not be a lie, and nothing you can do can change that.
But then I will also say that Jesus came to die for sinners, that He died for you, and that you are therefore His child, unworthy as you are, and an heir of everlasting life. And that will be the truth.
So I say let's make a t-shirt that says this: Jesus died and rose for you so the preacher won't have to lie at your funeral.
And the truth.
