What worked for you when you wanted to keep your control in sad situations?

My elderly (80+, but still fully active) parents will attend to the funeral of a very dear friend early next week. The man has been around in their private and professional lives since the early nineteen fifties.
History suggests that my dad especially will hold his facade until the last minute and then, being somehow entirely unprepared for the emotional onslaught, will have a really hard time during the event. I would like to be a kind kid and help them to prepare for, and handle the situation.
Any insider tips, mental preparation, mantras, even "alternative" medication?
