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!

Heart Healthy News

Good news! Since learning of my high cholestrol and coronary artery disease diagnosis a month ago, I have been trying to make big changes in my lifestyle. They have paid off! My doctor was pleased as in this short time, my heart rate is down, my blood pressure is down, my weight is down 8 lbs. and my bad cholestrol numbers have dropped over 30 points! Thank you to everyone was so kind to "snail mail" and e-mail me your healthy living recipes! I look forward to reporting back with continued good heart news as the summer progresses~ Wishing you all a healthy and active week! I am off to the treadmill for my daily 3 mile jog/walk...Smile!

What wonderful news and results from your quest to be the best you can be! Thanks for update and it sounds as if Colorado living is definitely agreeing with you.

I want to thank you also for the kind words of encouragement to Tyler on his blog. You don't know how much that means to me and to him I'm sure. Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts as well. Maybe someday I'll have as good a blog as you....

Love always,
