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!

A message from 6 year old Ashlyn

Hi my name is Ashlyn, from the Brownie Girl Scouts, troop #710! I was wondering if you would you like to buy some tastey Girl Scout cookies, to support the Girl Scouts? These are the varieties of cookies we are selling in 2008:

Lemon Chalet Cremes...cinnamon ginger spice and lemon
Tagalongs...peanut butter and chocolate
Trefoils...shortbread cookies in a cracker style
Do-si-does...crunchy oatmeal cookies with peanut butter filling
Soamoas...vanilla, coconut, caramel and chocolate

I would suggest the "All-Abouts"...a vanilla cookie with rich fudge coating

Sugar free chocolate chip cookies which are just like a chocolate chip cookie, but sugar free with all it's taste.

Thin Mints...thin wafer of chocolate and peppermint

Each box is $3.25. You can pay me when we deliver the cookies, which will be delivered around Valentine's Day. Free shipping to California when we come back with Grandma Lorraine at the end of February!

Hope you enjoy the cookies!

But, if you do not care to order any cookies, and want to support the Girl Scouts, you can make a donation, and our troop will donate the cookies to our local food pantry. Thank you!

The Brownie Scout Ashlyn :-)

Happy Birthdday Lorraine! I hope the day goes well and you enjoy every moment. The blessings bestowed on you and your family from all the friends and people who barely or do not know you are payback for all the kindness and wonderful works you have done in life through your teaching and community involvement. You deserve everything that is offered or given. Ashely, I will send a donation in a card to your Grandmother for the cookies to be donated to the food pantry. I think that is a wonderful idea! Good luck in selling many, many cookies for a very worthy cause! May all of you have a terrific day! Sally H.

Put me down for 4 boxes of Thin Mints. They are great frozen. Marilyn can pick them up on a trip to Longmont or your dad can deliver them when he comes to California.

Silly Jim..he thinks thinks the Thin Mints will actually make it home after I've gotten a hold of them?

Seriously, I will be in Longmont the last week of January. I'd love to come over one evening and visit, babysit, whatever you need. Let me know!
