Dear Gramps,

Being a member of the lds church and never have had a temple recommend-what type of attire should i be buried in?


Dear Barbara,

I would recommend that whatever is traditional for your society would be best.  Also you should consider what you look best in or if you have a favorite outfit.  Living in an area of a high concentration of members of the Church, the only thing that bothers me is when men who are unendowed are buried in black suits.  This is just a personal preference though.

What I would really recommend is for you to become worthy to receive your endowments.  I would suggest you meet with your Bishop and together develop a plan for you to follow so that you can attend the Temple.  As you gain a stronger testimony of the Gospel you will develop a desire to receive your endowments.  Then you would be buried in your Temple clothing.
