We have wonderful memories of times in Center Sandwich, NH, including the building of the cottage at Dinsmore, the addition to the Howe Homestead, and the year Elaine and John spent in North Sandwich.

My thoughts are with you, Sandy and Cindy. My favorite memory of your mother was when she helped me ski on the main trail at Mount Whittier and the great family reunion in the 1970's.
