Should we commit to memorial dinner for Donor?

A long time elderly supporter wishes to make a large donation to our 501(c)(3) organization with the stipulation that, upon her death, the organization will arrange and fund a funeral dinner in her honor. The amount left over from the donation is to be kept for our organization's use. Should we accept that donation with this caveat or have her make arrangements with the funeral home to cover that portion of the funeral plans, with a separate donation to be made to us for our charitable purposes?
