So they dug up a relative to sell the casket? That’s what used means, you know.

Not necessary, they could have use a nice casket for the funeral and burn the body without one.

Yes, and it seems ridiculous to not allow the casket to be reused if all it was used for was to display the body for a funeral and not to bury the body.

Maybe there should be a casket rental service, for people that are being cremated, but still want a open casket funeral.

I think funeral homes already do this

I paid $1200 to rent a casket for 2 hours that was specially designed so the cardboard cremation refrigerator box thing slipped inside.

$1200 gave me the right to ask the unamused undertaker if he fucked my wife as hard as he was fucking me.

Oh yeah it’s totally no big deal to take a body out of its coffin and bury it without. Just make sure to also pee on the body and turn it face down for final burial!

Yes, viewing caskets are a thing. Some old, ornate ones have been used hundreds or even thousands of times.
