The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Tom and Denise before the "Snowball"

Here is a photo Kyle took of us before leaving for Tom's company Christmas party tonight. After 19 years of marriage, we are looking just a bit older than we did back in 1988!

Hey Denise sorry we never got together before you moved to Colorado. Your home is beautiful, so too are the kids, and you and Tom look wonderful as well. Reading your comments brings back fond memories of our three years in Colorado. The pure joy of the first snow days for the kids, the pristine stillness of the morning after a fresh snow, and the beauty of the mountains. Glad you are happy though I understand what it is to miss loved ones and friends left behind and to wish everyone could experience the joys of living in Colorado. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and all the best in 2008! Remembering you fondly. Love, Jan and the Riehle's (PS: Did you know Patrick goes to Regis University in Denver? He is a junior here is his cell phone number: 303-829-9388) Kate is a senior at Carondelet and hopes to be accepted at Notre Dame. We would love to hear from you!

I need your current address and e-mail as well, so I will get it all from Patrick! Thanks again for writing and I will be in touch soon! I have such great memories of your family and would love to catch up!
