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!

Kyle's "Wrestle-Offs"







After my mom's "radiation celebration" we headed over to Kyle's middle school to watch him compete in the first "wrestle-offs" competition. It was a lot of fun, and we were impressed with all the coaches, referrees and kids. Kyle lost his first match 7-6 but won the second, pinning the wrestler and ending with a score of 11-5. These are a few photos of the event. (Kyle's in the red shorts) Move over WWF, here comes Kyle Kofford! :-)

Hi Kofford Family,

I know you guys are rushing around getting ready for your flight back to California. We just wanted you to know how happy we are to hear about Lorraine's Chemo/Radiation Celebration at that No Cancer Cells are present. That is such good news! Even more reason to celebrate next weekend.

Kyle, Congratulations on the Wrestling Win, you'll have to show Patrick some moves if we get to see you.

And Ashlyn, Way to go on Selling the Girl Scout Cookies. My Goodness, 200 Boxes! That's awesome!

Hope to see you, Love you all.
