There is a saying here that you can determine the wealth of the dead when there is a marching band in the funeral march. That is the tradition here. When a government official or a wealthy person dies, for sure there is a marching band in the funeral march. That tradition was already dying during my younger years as an adult. But lately, it is again surfacing with the proliferation of marching bands mostly composed of young musicians. But in a funeral march, there is no majorette though.
