    give someone a funeral / hold a funeral for someone!

    Dear all,

    We gave her a funeral when she passed away.

    I made up the sentence. If we organize a funeral for someone, is it parhaps rude to say 'give them a funeral' instead of 'hold a funeral for them'?
    Do you see any differences in connotation between those two expressions?

    I would appreciate any comments.

    It's OK, but I can't say I'd use it.
