Never wear white to the funeral of an elder because it is
disrespectful to the family.
I traveled by plane to Alabama to go to my aunt stepmother's
funeral. As we dressed that morning to go to the funeral I asked
my aunt, "What should I wear? I said, "Maybe I will wear my
white dress." My aunt said, "No, you do not wear white to the
funeral of an elder because it is disrespectful to the family."
