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!

Happy Birthday Lorraine!


Today is my mom's 67th birthday! She was born in Maui, Hawaii on Jan. 15th, 1941. We are happy to have her celebrate her special day in Colorado with us! We have a "birthday boa" for her to wear, and she will have a special birthday surprise this afternoon! This morning a home health nurse is coming by, and then we will head back to the hospital for her radiation treatment. Afterwards another assessment therapist is coming by, so she will have a full day. I am making one of her favorite meals tonight, and Beth's Bakery will be making a special delivery as well! :-) (Thanks again Beth!) Happy Birthday Mom!
