I've been to more funerals than I care to remember and not once was cash an expected 'gift'.
Expected, no, a fact of life, yes.

When my wife passed in 2003, I got a card with several hundred CHF from a group of locals, for example, though I didn't need it (my employer gave me one with 10k in it ).
