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!

Quarter Collectors


Here is our United States quarter collection that we started back in 1999. We've finally made it to the year 2008 and there are only 2 more states needed to complete the set! We just filled in New Mexico and have 3 extras if anyone is looking for N.M. I'll mail one to you! Alaska and Hawaii are next...if these states have been released in your area, save us one! Next question...what do we do with this collection once it is complete? Hang it on the wall? Put in on a shelf? Pack it away? There has got to be a clever use for all the quater collections folks have been working on for the past 9 years...let me know what you will do with yours!

I saw Colin's Quarter map while packing to move, it was about half full. I have no idea where it landed, but I would guess it is in storage in a box marked "Misc. Junk".

Jim, I think Tom would agree with you! I think he feels half of the stuff in this house is "Misc. Junk!" HA HA Actaully we have been trying to be good about not bringing more treasures in, or as a friend once called it, "no more trinkets and trash!" Ah, the stuff yard sales are made of!

For Christmas a few years ago my mom gave all the Grandkids a quarter map. Such fun. I guess I should find out where our is.:)

Hi Denise ~

Patrick's coin map is on the shelf in his closet collecting dust! I just checked...we still need Arizona, Alaska & Hawaii. If I come across Alaska & Hawaii, I will mail them to you!
