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!

Live from California!

I told a little fib in the entry below. Actually it was a half truth, but it was truly for a good cause! Tom, my mom, and the kids will be in Estes Park this weekend, but I will not because I am writing to you live from my friend Charlene Wiley's home! I had planned this surprise birthday visit a few months ago with Charlene's husband. After my mom's diagnosis, I wasn't sure if it would still happen. My mom has been doing so well that her and Tom insisted I go, so I did!

I arrived last night and have had a wonderful time staying over at my friend Laura's, celebrating Charlene, visiting with friends, shopping, and eating lots of good food! I will fill you in on all the details and post more pictures when I return, but for now we are off to a nice dinner at the Basil Leaf Cafe in Danville!

Here are all the ladies at Charlene's party this afternoon...Me, Diane, Laraine, Charlene, and Charlene's sister Jessie! Happy Birthday Charlene!
