Why do people talk about the deceased with glowing reference at funerals?


It seems to me that every funeral I've been too, it doesn't matter what the deceased was like, they turn into absolute saints upon death. Why is this. Even if they were a complete prick in life? I have heard the saying don't speak ill of the dead, but surely the truth is best?
