Sarcasm translates, you just have to look for it. With that in mind, that most certainly was not sarcasm. It was a poorly planned joke. (My 2 cents)

If someone said that to me at a family members' funeral, I would not be upset. Funerals tend to make people nervous, and a lot of the time cause them to to say things without thinking, but think its wrong even though 9/10 times, it's usually the appropriate thing to say.

it doesn't even have to mean anything bad it just means glad to be there for support in my eyes, Id see no problem

Op didn't need to apologize. "Thank you for supporting our family in our time of need." "It was my pleasure to do so." There was nothing wrong with the response at all and I'm sure they thought nothing of it.

#14, take me with you! I have said some things that make me cringe when I think about them and I'd definitely like to say something different.

That's the appropriate thing to say. Although you could always say, "sorry for your loss" too. And personally to your friend, offer to be there for them of course.

I'm sure of you just explain you were nervous and that your sorry they will forgive you. your probably not the first person to say that.

Just talk to the family and tell them you were nervous, and that you are wholeheartedly giving your condolences for the death of their loved one.
