funeral etiquette...

After enjoying the fruits of your labors, we all need a place to chill. This is that place. Totally senseless irrelevant banter encouraged.

Kinda depends why you're going to the funeral..
but, if your clothes are clean, imo, its ok.

Regardless you should get shoes, at least get a pair of boots. you have work boots anyways right?

im also bringing 4 shovels and a digging bar/tamp


its a tradition in my family to hang around till the lids on
then we fill in the grave

cathartic

was unsetltling having trouble recognizing so many old friends


there was only a token bit of dirt

we lined up for the shovel


i threw 4 shovels full
one to each of the directions

and the wish that my friend can now go any way that he should like...

That's wonderful, Ben! As wonderful as a funeral can be, that is. What a great way to send family/friends off.

Your appearance matters little as compared to your appearance on the scene. You showed up, that's what is important.

R.I.P your loss.

I've been the only one at a funeral in jeans. Nobody appeared to give a shit. Don't worry about it.

i know i'm late but i don't go to funerals anymore. can't habdle the emotional overload and since my crash back in oct. 2004 i'm more emotionally sensitive now. didn't go to my cousins or my sisters funeral but watched on live stream. which let me know i made the right decision not to show. my remaining sisters asked to to support her and that would have been a disaster that she then would have blamed herself for.so what her son said to me in pain etc. wouldn't mean shit while i'm in the psych ward gone off the deep in.

clothes is wear what you want because it's not about you frfr. what u said above is practical imho

im nearly in the same boat but this was ok...
the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.
