Bruce was never dead though...it's been made clear several times that he was lost in time after being shot by Darkseid's Omega Sanction in the finale of Final Crisis. Superman actually has died and was gone maybe six or seven months? I can't remember the exact length of time before he was brought back but it was a significant period of time.
I was watching the documentary on Superman/Doomsday and Jennette Khan says something to the affect that it was a week or so after his death that they had his funeral. I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty sure that is what she says.
