Knowing which clothing to dress your loved in for the last time is more difficult than most people realise. Do you dress them in their favourite pair of boardies, or do you use the suit they wore to work for the majority of their working life?

As with most decisions pertaining to funerals, it once again comes down to family preferences. Whether it is a nice pair of neat clothes, a uniform, a favourite sports shirt, or a t-shirt and trackies, it is what sets your mind at ease as family.

Shoes are also an option. Again, you do not have to bring shoes, but if it sets your mind at ease, or if your loved one was never seen without their thongs or slippers, you can provide us with them.

Ultimately, it is about showing your love and respect to your loved one and being at peace with how they are making their final journey.
