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 Guitar Showcase

Tonight Kyle performed at his guitar teacher's "Student Showcase." Kyle plays, "Back in Black" with Jason on the video. Check out his fancy finger work during his solo(at 2:07). Afterwards we went out to dinner and had a nice evening since Ashlyn was feeling better. My mom was feeling good when I spoke to her today, and she enjoyed a trip out to feed the ducks yesterday. She and Gayle "played hooky" from Hospice, but even the Hospice nurse said that if she was up for an outing, then by all means she should go and enjoy it! Until next time, enjoy the rest of your weekend and

That was GREAT! How cool to be able to play so well at such a young age.

KYLE, You Rock!!!

Loved the video and your mom or dad got some great close ups of you! Keep on playing, I am really impressed.

It was so fun to watch Kyle play. I love it at the end when he pumps his fist in the air. He is getting very good. Glad Ashlyn is feeling better; I hate it when my kids are sick and feel so helpless. I loved your post about mothers. And as always, thanks for keeping us updated on your own mom. I think about her (and you) often.
