sophietr8 tells us more.
In order to explain more, my aunt had promised to lend her the shirt, so she was a little angry that my uncle used that one in the open casket. It was just a momentary thing, but yeah, it was pretty bitchy. I already had a long conversation with her about it.

Horrible and selfish the girl's viewpoint may be, I think she has a point (sort of). It's not as if dead people need clothes. Well I suppose they do in an open casket funeral.. Still, I can see where she's coming from, but she should have worded it better and not acted like a spoiled brat.
What a damn shame..... You sister must have a very retro style in clothing.
86: I'm sensing hostility from you. My comment was in no way meant to be taken in a sense of "aunts die young". I was implying that it's possible that OP's aunt was young and therefore added my age comparison to my niece. I could've easily said 'I'll be 80 when my niece is 65' but chose my younger years to say 35 isn't old (and I'm fully aware OP didn't say a single thing about her aunts age). In all due respect, I'm assuming OP's sister is incredibly young for the lack of empathy, maturity or respect for her Aunt. I hope we all live happy, long, fulfilled lives, but sometimes horrible things happen and people close to us die before their "time".
You should have told her that you were mortified, and she was dead wrong because her logic had a fatal flaw. What, too soon?
23. Respecting the dead (and feelings of their relatives) is moral choice/obligation which is a bit related to religion. Clothes will rot away, so technically sister is correct that they're wasted. However, since she doesn't care about her dead aunt, that's entirely different matter, which is not related to logic.
She should show more respect for the deceased. It's a FHL for being a horrible person.
Slip the mortician a fifty (or the Dutch equivalent of a entry-level prostitute) and he'll be happy to bury a naked stiff and give your sister some cute duds infused with the stench of death.
