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!

Grandma's Trip to Rocky Mountain National Park

Grandma Lorraine, Kyle, Ashlyn and I (Tom) took a short drive to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park today. We enjoyed burgers, freshly made taffy and views of the famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, and then took in the wildlife and spectacular views in RMNP. I hope you enjoy the posting of pictures...minus Denise's clever writing. (FYI - We just talked to Denise and she is on her way home after a thoroughly enjoyable and well deserved break in California with all of her closest friends.)

Way to go Tom!

I agree that you did a great job taking over while Denise got a much needed break! I am very impressed that you posted something on the blog. Your family is very lucky to have you!

Lorraine and the kids looked happy in the photo so it must have been a nice day together!

Keep on keeping on-
Love,
Kim

good job Tom. Who would have known that you could post on a blog. And add photos too. You truly are multi-talented. Glad to see Lorraine doing so well. I think there is less snow in Estes Park than there is just up the road from Chico.
