    The hospice house says me being on line blocks the phones so I have to limit my on line time. I have copied the posts and will reply later today.

    I spent most my day yesterday taking care of her funeral and trying to find her a beautiful powder blue robe and gown and can not find it.

    I have called EVERY store in my town, went on line late last night and went to Macy's, Sacks, google, ebay and nothing.

    If anyone has any other ideas or boutiques in your town please let me know, then I can have it shipped overnite.

    I do still have a few days. Thank all of you and will be back later-Carla

    Maybe a seamstress? Could run you one up in a day or so? Grab the fabric yourself, that way it will be the way you want it. My sister was a seamstress and did this now and then. It may actually be the fastest way to go.

    Keeping you in our prayers here. Love Annie

    Carla, I did a little searching for you, and quickly found that "pretty" robes are hard to come by. If you were looking for snuggly, warm or absorbent, it would be easy.

    This site has a few blue robes. The Blue Danube is very pretty. You can get express or overnight shipping if needed.


    Here's a pretty one in periwinkle blue. If you click on the sellers name, "shadowline", they have a matching gown.


    (Sorry, I know these big links will make the page go extra wide. But I wanted to make it quick and easy for you to look at them.)

    Carla you are in a tough position having to make all the arrangements, yet staying by your mothers side. You are a good daughter. Are there any other family members who could help you?

    I will keep thinking, and try to come up with some more ideas of where to find a pretty robe and gown set for a mature woman. I will keep you both in my prayers.

    I'm glad you're keeping busy and hope you find the robe you want soon.

    Everything sounds so cliched, 'glad you're keeping busy', silly thing to say but I really am thinking about you and your Mum.

    Take care of yourself Carla

    there any cosignment(Hope I spelled this right) shops in your area?

    Or anyone else's area that could be checked? Hopefully check them out before the teen's go out to check them for prom dresses??

    Not sure how helpful this is, but I figured I would try.

    Don't know if you would be up to it, but there is a little dress shop in Grayson that has beautiful clothes...

    Wilma's Dress shop is the name, it's been in business for years.

    I'm praying for you

    I wrote a post and lost it and mom has had changes and the Dr just left and maybe in the next 12-24 hours, so my time is running out.

    Thank all of you for your suggestions and I did look and still no luck.

    Lacey on of the people that work here lives in Grayson and is going to look for me one there tomorrow. They are so wonderful here. I did email you, at least I think it was you.

    I'm going to go before I loses this too. I will be in touch, god bless you all-Carla

    The funeral home may be able to advise you where to purchase the gown.

    Thinking of you and your Mom.

    Carla--please know that you are in my prayers again tonight.

    You are a good daughter, and your mother knows. Take comfort in that fact and may God be with you.

    Just wanted to say what a wonderful daughter you are and I hope you are able to find the gown/robe that you want. Wish I could help you.

    I went through what you are with my father 7 years ago. It was really hard and stressful, but there was nowhere else I'd rather have been, but by his side. I know you feel the same way.

    Take care & I will keep you and your mom in my prayers. God bless.

    Many carry lovely things of apparel.

    My heart is with you and your mother. I know that all of us is with you in the only way that we can be. It is a large crowd sending you hugs, love, prayers and many blessings.

    Try and take care of yourself also through all of this. Anyone that offers help......please let them.
