I remember growing up in South Swanzey, NH and hanging out with Keith and his brother Kevin, Mother Sally, and the (Late) Father Kermit. The Maddens were always generous and helpful to us, sharing meals, showing us how to do many things, including snowmobile-riding, wood-cutting/hauling, etc. Keith was in my sister Alison's class and a little older than me, but he was always willing to hang out and teach me things.
