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!

Special Birthday Request :-)

Everyone has been so kind to ask if we had any special needs, and I actually do have a special request for anyone reading in the Longmont, CO area! My mom's birthday is on Tuesday, and her favorite kind of cake is prune. Does anyone know of a good bakery in town? I wanted to see if I could have a proper prune cake baked as the one I baked a few years ago for her was OK, but not terrific. We usually fall back on chocolate, which we all love, but I am really wanting to make this birthday one to remember for my mom. With such a serious diagnosis, we don't want to take one day for granted, so if prune cake is her wish, I so want to make it come true! :-) Let me know if any Longmont readers have bakery suggestions. Thanks!!!

Good Morning one and all! Just read about the Prune Cake wish, and I, too, will do what I can to either find a fantastic bakery between here and Red Bluff, and I will also call upon my mom who has a wealth of old-fashion style cake recipes from both of my grandmothers and herself!
love, kim l.

Dear Lorraine & Family,
Just learned about you being sick. Lorna gave me your daughter's blog address. I'm glad to hear you are home (your daughter's home) and are resting comfortably. We will miss you at Crafty Ladies and Book Club.
Can't help you with the prune cake--could send a recipe. I wish you a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Much Love, Kathy Bramhall
