My dad's cousin passed away. I need help deciding which top to wear. In additional I'm wearing dress slacks and black dress shoes.

Either will work but I like the second one better. My condolences.

When I got married, more than a few parishioners, some who I didn't even know, showed up at the church and sat in the back. If you belong to a congregation, you usually have the right to be in the church during a ceremony even if you were not invited. While I would not do it, many do.
Huh?

I would wear the first top, the royal blue one.

I think the quoted post above belonged in a different thread, I read it earlier in a thread where someone was asking if it was rude to go to a wedding in a park that they hadn't been invited to.

I'd suggest wearing all black, conservative style.
Shirt/Blouse should be long sleeve; do not show off cleavage or belly.
Pants/skirt should not show ankles, and not have holes in them.
Do not show off but crack.

Don't wear really tight clothing.

Do not look sexy.
Try for flat black, non-shiny, no screen-printed logos or patterns.

If you also wear a black trench coat, refrain from quoting from The Matrix Trilogy.

No matter what you wear, refrain from stating "I See Dead People" unless ya really hate the person you say it to, cause' they might burst into laughter.

I'd choose the more conservative blue blouse for a memorial service. Wear understated jewelry. I agree that this is not the place for "sexy" clothes, super dangly earrings or colorful eye makeup. I think that you get that.

My condolences to you and your family.

The blue top. It is more appropriate for the occasion. The v-neck sweater is not dressy enough, and the wrong color and the wrong style. It it were a classic v-neck or slight scoop neck, or even crewneck, with no design in a pale gray or a dove gray with some understated silver jewelry or pearl jewelry, that would be conservative and tasteful enough for the occasion. The blue blouse is closer to what I just said.
