I think there is definitely a place for humor in the grieving process. When we buried a close friend, who died at 21, I visited her hometown for the first time (which I had heard much about). We made jokes and had as good a time as possible, and I don't regret it.

At my first friend's funeral (he was 21 too, just turned) his family used funny stories about him, which was good because most of us were laughing more than we were crying, and found it better to get through the funeral. I still laugh at some of the things his sister said about him.
I don't find it inappropriate at all. I think it's actually the best thing to do.
