Wearing shoes in the casket?
Do we need to bring shoes for dad to wear in the casket?
No, you don’t have to, but some people do. People bring slippers, boots or shoes. When we dress a person in a casket, it can be whatever the family wants them to wear. We are traditionally used to seeing men in suits or women in dresses. Now you’re seeing men dressed in flannel shirts and jeans. We’ve buried women in their pajamas. Recently I buried someone completely naked. They said they came into this world naked and they were going to leave this world naked. I always joke that I want to be buried in my bike shorts and t-shirt! So, anything goes.Share
