If I remember, the early saints in the Salt Lake Valley were oft times were buried in a shroud, any clothes they left behind would have been passed on to family or others needing clothing. That was just the practical thing to do. I believe that customs and traditions that have developed over the years can be comforting and therefore of value to the deceased person's loved ones. Some people frown on cremation, some people are repelled by the indignities a body being embalmed undergoes in the traditions that became popular during the Civil War and continue today. I'm not sure that God prefers that temple clothing is burned in a cremation. I just hope people can do what they feel is respectful to the remains of their loved ones. For financial reasons, as well as preferring to become ashes and dust more quickly, I plan to be cremated. I have a strong aversion to embalming and burial in a way that prevents nature taking its course. But that's just me.
