When my OH died a few weeks ago he was wearing a pyjama bottom and a long-sleeved vest. When the funeral director asked what we would like him to be clothed in for the burial, I said it was fine for him to be in those items.
But my 3 DDs very much wanted him to be in something special, and they took in to the funeral directors the clothes he wore to the wedding of one of my DDs. I went with the flow, feeling that, if it helped them, I should go along with it.
I now find it very hard to deal with - my mind obsesses with those lovely clothes - some of which I bought him specially - rotting away in the ground.
I know how silly and unimportant it is but it will not go away. I have not visited the grave because of this.
