Well as I say, I was overruled on the glasses issue, while making funeral arrangements for half a dozen or so friends, and relatives. To me, eyeglasses serve to puntucate the macabre spectacle already in place. Ordinarily, we don't sleep with eyeglasses although the older I get, the more likely the possibility. The corpse is lying there dead, eyes closed, wearing glasses. For me, it's bad form.
When I arranged my mother's funeral, we had a closed casket, but an entire ensemble, including shoes, hosiery, and undergarments, was required. Neither my sister nor I, looked at the body; the funeral was private. We have no regrets. Dead bodies serve no purpose to me, closure or otherwise. But that's an individual matter, of course. When my father goes . . . we'll do things the same way. That's assuming he doesn't outlive my sister and me.
Label King, I too think that mortuary would have been a most satisfying endeavor. I like to greet people, during stressful times.
